I don't take vitamins...I don't see any reason why a person should take viatmins, i mean i know it's for the body but all the nutrients from our body comes from the food we eat...we become healthy if we eat lots of nutritous food...i think it's not really necessary to take vitamins... But i can see lots of people even on t.v. really takes vitamins, and according to them it's their supplements, protection from sickness...which i don't really agree because i don't take vitamins but i've never experienced getting really sick... I can see commercials on t.v., all about vitamins with different kinds of brands...but i still won't buy to what they are saying...i just don't believe that those vitamins really works... Do you think it's necessary to take vitamins? Do you still take vitamins?

I also don't take vitamins. I know it's very important elements for our health. However, I don't like taking the vitamin pills as I regard them as the medicine. If it's not necessary, I never want to take a medicine. I want to get vitamins from the natural way. That means to say I like to get it from my diet.

Yes, as a matter of fact, I do take multivitamins. Since I am not able to cook up a well balanced meal everyday where I could possibly get all the vitamins necessary for a day, taking vitamins is a way to fill up on the vitamins that I may be missing out. By taking vitamins, I am assured that my intake of vitamins is enough to keep my body healthy.

As long as you are eating a varied and healthy diet, you don't need to take vitamins and some vitamins are actually dangerous if you take too many. The only exception to this would be, if someone had a medical problem which made it difficult for them to obtain a certain vitamin or if they needed more than normal amount of vitamins to help them be healthy, only then would it be a good reason.

For me personally i take 1000mg vitamin C everyday, because i know i won't have enough vitamin only from food intake. Vitamin C is known to help our immune system to fight germ and known to help the re-epitelitation of mucose. I still thik vitamin will benefit to our health and body, as long as we take herbal vitamin and not the artificial one.
