    Are vitamin supplements necessary to include in our daily diet or is it enough to take diet rich in fruits and vegetables to obtain the necessary nutrients?

    Generally people do not get the recommended dosage of vitamins and minerals because of the hectic pace of life and cultured influenced diets. So it is recommended that you take a multivitamin in the required dosage usually no more than one a day.

    Usually the body can process vitamins and minerals better when found in complex compounds as occuring in nature. Therefore it is best to continue to strive for 5 servings of fruits and vegetables and complement using a multivitamin daily.

    Hope this helps,
    Vidya

    Centrum from Wyeth Pharma is the popular brand. You can purchase it at any pharmacy or grocery stores.

    It is good to take vitamins regularly.
    There is no harm with it, if taken excessive, it is excreted.

    I tried Centrum and it made me sick. Now I take a Multivitamin that has a 98% absorption rate. It has a patented formula. They are guareenteed to give you more energy and over all better health or your money back. I started taking them about 2 months ago not only is my energy level increased I find my mood is better and my skin and complexion are improved.
    Have any body found out what the absorbtion rate of various Multi-vitamines.
