Hi all,

iv iv been taking a multivitamin tablet for about a year, I then started taking sea kelp as I was told by a friend it made her hair grow. Iv had trouble sleeping for years, and was informed taking magnesium and zinc could help, so purchased two seperate tablets for them too. I thought to myself that I was taking a lot of supplements so decided to research if I was taking too much and was horrified by what came up! Is there truly any benefit to taking vitamin tablets? Wondering if I would be best stopping the lot and trying to get the vitamins from food, or home made remedies. Any advice would be greatly appreciated smile
