I take a multiple vitamin everyday. I also take herbal supplements. My husband thinks they are a shame of money. What do you think? Do you take supplements?

My calcium intake from my meals is sufficient. I should start taking vitamin D, especially in the winter months to stave off depression.

My hubby grumps about taking them and says he gets them from his foods, but he doesn't eat a balanced diet.

Yes, I take them everyday. I just take the individual vitamins, not the multi-vitamins. I take Coral Calcium, Vitamin K, Vitamin C, Fish Body Oils(its a capsule, thankfully lol), Natural E, and Potassium & Magnesium Aspartate. I do take one mulit-vitamin which is Prenatal Nutrients. I'm not pregnant but I've been told and have read that it helps with hair and nail growth.

Yes, I take a multiple vitamin as well, I think they are good for you. I don't think they are a waste of money, especially for people who don't get enough with the foods they eat.

Used properly they are a help! I don't think they're a waste of money. I take a multi and also vit c, MSM and a couple others. They do help! Do your homework and research what the safe doses are, don't just randomly start taking something. Also some of those supplements will make certain ailments worse. Melatonin will make asthma worse for example. Overall I've found them to be more of a help and I feel better. *Definitely* worth the money!!
