i read that iron can block absorption of other vitamins/minerals

does this mean if you take a multivitamin along with other supplements, that those supplements will be useless because of the multi you took with the iron in it?

There is much research about the bioavailability of the vitamins and minerals in "super vitamins" that shows minimal at best uptake. Best advice:

  1. Get everything you can from food (look up common deficiencies).
  2. If you must supplement, look for high quality liquid supplements.
  3. See #1.
  4. Read #1 one more time.

Certain forms of iron may decrease the bioavailability of zinc and cooper, but iron wont block these minerals completely, just reduce the amount you absorb.

"Copper Absorption and Bioavailability"
