    The last study I saw suggested vitamins are actually potential carcinogenic in excess. that is--you should only take them if clinically deficient.

      Absolutely.  There is no reason for any healthy person with access to good food to take vitamins.  Eat a wide variety of healthy foods and you are covered.

      Most of the foods available in American, commercialized markets, are miserably nutritionally, and minerally deplete, psuedo-foods! It is impossible to attain, health/fitness/wellness, eating and engaging only in the use of these, so-called foods! They are the reason for the epidemic in preventable diseases. One thing is for sure, if we only engage in the eating of those so-called foods, sickness., disease, premature aging, poor quality health, and early death, can be the only results! We must engage in the use of super-foods, ethnobotantical foods, sea life, and usage of whole food, multi-vitamin/mineral substances(never single vitamins), probiotic/enzyme usage, and a diet based on Natural foods, then our lives are manifested!

        If you are going to engage in the whole food, raw food ,natural food regime, I know you are going to leave those synthetic "mutiple vitamins" alone ,are you not?

        Where I am I certainly do not find it hard to buy real fruits and vegetables, baked goods with basic unprocessed ingredients, and pasture-raised meat.

        Just having twinkies and potato chips available does not oblige one to eat nothing else.

    Since they came out with gummies and are not the size of horse pills i take a multivitamin daily.

      1 pill won't do it, and can't do it! Besides, gummies for an adult? C'mon, you'd better start putting in nutrients that, actually are of benefit!

    I take vitamins when I remember to. I guess it's okay because I eat a lot of fruits and vegetables. Most vitamins that you can purchase at places like walmart and typical grocery stores don't carry vitamins that can even be absorbed by your body, so it's important to take a whole food vitamin from a reputable company or you are just wasting money all together.

    I've taken them for years and everyone thinks I'm much younger than I am.

    I do, but sometimes I forget. I think it works though because I rarely get sick. But I've read somewhere that it doesn't really matter if you take vitamins or not. LOL.. to much info gets confusing sometimes...

      That info was completely wrong! It's like saying, "You can run your gasoline powered car, on nothing!" The only thing that keeps us alive are, the necessary vitamins, minerals, and ALL of the other "Life giving" constituents provided by Nature, for our and ALL life's sustenance! The more nutrients we have in our blood, the more life we have in our body's!

    Depends on your diet so this should be considered on a case by case basis.

    Personally, I take an omega 3 supplement (wild alaskan salmon sourced) and a vitamin D/calcium supplement (don't get enough exposure to create natural D from the sun). I eat an otherwise balanced diet so don't feel the need for a daily multivitamin.

    I give my kids omega and D supplements. Since kids can be picky, I also like to give them a multivitamin periodically to fill in the blanks. HOWEVER, their multi is whole-foods based versus synthetic based and does not contain any artificial food dyes.

    I've taken vitamins for many years now. One thing to keep in mind is that if you take a vitamin, you need to take a quality one. There have been many studies that prove that most vitamins leave the body undigested. Not only are many of them not being absorbed into your body, but some of them can actually be harmful.

    You should always be careful when taking supplements and trust the source.

      I agree! I sell the Nutrilite vitamin and had a customer tell me that she has seen her Centrum in her excrement before! She switched to our seed-to-supplement brand and loves it! Why would you want to waste your hard earned money on something if you haven't researched it?
