    Vitamins are essential organic catalytic substances, one that is essential to life and growth.

    I would certainly agree! Many vitamins that are really beneficial to the human system are overlooked while at the same time defaulting within. Like vitamins D, O, K, and many others such as Riboflavin needed to maintain health within humans... for sure vitamins are organic compounds required as life sustainance in molecular amounts by an organism... its needed.

    Hi, I'm not sure what the question is, but if you are interested enough to supplement, you may want to take an additional step and have a metabolic in home test.....Priva Test.
    Your body is unique. The bio-nutrients it needs for optimal functional health may be different from those that someone else needs.

    That's why ordinary multivitamins don't cut it. Multivitamins from the drugstore, and expensive supplements from nutrition and health food stores alike, can leave you with too much of some nutrients, too little of others, or none at all of other particular nutrients your body needs.

    The simple truth is that "one-size-fits-all" multivitamin cannot provide you with optimal nutrition because they are created for a hypothetical "average" person. No such person exists.

    On top of that, many ingredients in drug store brand multivitamins are in hard-to-absorb forms, or their ingredients are isolated from their synergistic nutrient partners—facts which can greatly reduce their effectiveness.
    Contact me if you want more information, I'd be happy to get your questions answered.

    Debbie Dougan is right about multivitamins there is also evidence to suggest that the vitamin A in multivitamins is high enough to be toxic to elderly people who take them everyday.

    I used to work in a nutritional laboratory and unfortunately ordinary doctors are not interested in your vitamin or mineral status or getting your diet fixed they just want you to buy drugs but in reality correcting your vitamin and mineral balance can help to correct a lot of problems.

    I think vitamins are important to life and growth. However, we should be conscious of the amount we take.  Some vitamins can become toxic to our systems if in excess.  That is why it is important to eat healthily as we can get a lot of vitamins and minerals that way.  It is true, that some doctors do not monitor our levels of vitamins and minerals in our systems, but a lot of doctors are now doing it.  I think it will become more common to do as time goes on, especially due to the fact that many persons have been found to be low in vitamin D.  through blood tests. Another problem is that most vitamins in pill form are not easily digested and there has been evidence, especially of 'iron' that even hours later, through x-rays, an iron pill can still be seen in the digestive tract, undigested.   It has been stated it is best to take iron with orange juice, or some type of drink that is vitamin C fortified, as vitamin C helps to metabolize iron. Some companies already have vitamins+iron in a tablet which dissolves in water (rather than a pill) as the body can absorb it better.  To my knowledge, it is not available to buy in the U.S. yet, you have to send off for it.  But it would be interesting to see that this may be a new thing for the near future.  Didn't mean for my answer to be so long, but I am anemic and have to take a multivitamin and iron (separately); so although I am not an expert, I have looked a lot into it.  So, hope this helps and have a great day!!
