Are vitamin pills worth buying?

what i think that While fruits and veggies are much better and natural, most people do not eat enough to receive the body's necessary vitamins.So, before you buy vitamins make sure you know which you need..

I think there is no need for vitamin pills if you eat a proper diet.if you Take a balanced diet with cereals,pulses,meat ,vegetables and fruits and drink plenty of water ,then there is no need for vitamin supplements.

Most of the foods that we eat today, are so processed that they do not contain the vitamins, and minerals that they should. If you are not eating 100% Organic foods you should supplement your diet to get what you need.

I prefer to take vitamins from natural foods as well and think we would have enough nutrients by having proper diet. But I agree we can only take vitamins from organic foods.

Well if you are taking in the right food each day, then there is no need for vitamins and supplements. But in this hurried and busy life, it would be difficult to have a proper balance diet and health meal all the time. More over, stress at work will also affect our health. That is why, It is really advisable to take in some vitamins to compensate for the lack of it. But it is also very important to choose well what we take consider that most vitamins if taken in excess can also lead to health problems.

Most people don't even know what a balanced diet truely is. Then, when you realize that fruits and vegetables don't have the nutrients in them that they once had, most people do need a multi-vitamin/mineral. There are just too many studies out there today showing the need for vitamins that are hard to ignore.

Natural vitamins - Natural vitamins are proper source of vitamins
Hi Meenakshisoni Ya you are absolutely right..there is natural vitamin in some fruits and vegetables and ppl are not caring abt it going for vitamin pills..I feel taking vitamin pills are waste of money comparing to consuming natural diets like fruits and vegetables..some ppl buy vitamin pills for protecting them from cancers and cholestrol or other diseases but they get disappointed...even scientist recommend fruits and vegetables and natural diets...Vitamin pills are worth only to certain extent and must be consumed after proper advise of doctor.....
