    Vitamin supplements are mostly pointless unless you have a proven deficiency. Too much can be as bad as too little in some cases. There is also evidence that dietary vitamins are better used by the body than artificial ones - they just benefit the manufacturer's bank account.

    First of all, find out if you are deficient. If you are, then improve your diet to cover the vitamins that you are deficient in. And discuss with your doctor whether there may be any other reason you are deficient.

    As the others say, taking supplements is a waste of money unless you actually know you need them. Supplement manufacturers make a fortune on people thinking they need something to improve their health when in fact it is total waste if time. What do you think you are deficient in?
