Multi-vitamin tablets often are advised by friends and family. They are known to boost our immunity and help in body growth process. But do they realy work wonders ? Does they have any side effect in the long run as the body is getting used to an external help from outside for growth? I have been taking becosule tablets for some months but i am still the same person i was before. So is it that effective? Anyone with good suggestions and thoughts,please reflect on it and post. Bye. Happy mylotting.

Hello ritwick! I take multivitamins everyday and it would be good to take one since there are a lot of viruses that seems to arise nowadays. It would be better to drink vitamins like a prevention of sort. Cheers!

cheers lady, Although i dont like to take them as a daily habit, i still acknowledge the fact that they are good for our health. But i still feel that going for natural elements like fruits and vegetables are better.I'll try again taking vitamin tablets. Bye.happy mylotting.

If u cant get all the nutrition from your diet then it is advised to take these tablets but it should not replace ur normal diet of essential vitamins

i never really took them regularly, i mean i took one pill or two when i was little, but that's it so i can't really say if its effective or not. but i can say, from what i've seen at my friends, that you're better off without them. cause if you start using them regularly, and then suddenly drop, your immune system will suffer and your body might change too, many people i know gained weight after they stopped taking them. vitamins can be taken from food with no problems, so why give any more money to medicine?

I think it depends on the pill and the person. If you have any questions about it, you should probably see a nutritionist or a doctor. If you are not deficient in vitamins, then it probably isn't very good for your health because you may be getting too much of certain vitamins in your body.

Normally I wouldn't take them but my doctor told me I have iron deficiency, and for me to take iron. Now, I happen to know that one must take other vitamins in order for the iron to absorb properly, so there's an organic vitamin supplement as well as calcium complete with vitamin d and magnesium that I get from an online health store, and it's helping me keep my blood count normal. The vitamins provide 50% of the daily iron intake and I try to follow a healthy diet.

I have taken multivitamins and I have seen an improvement in my physical wellness. Multivitamins provide a certain amount of each vitamin that is recommended daily to be healthy but it will not over dose you on that mineral. I see a difference in the way I feel when I stop taking them.

I have always taken vitamins. My mother insisted on it as kids. When my son was newborn I had stopped taking vitamins and I was so tired it was hard to function so I was drinking caffenated soda constantly. That didnt help that much. I tried taking mutli-vitamins again and oh my gosh what a huge difference. I am so much more alert and am not drained and exhausted all the time. I think taking multi-vitamins is important because we cannot possibly eat all the foods we need to during the day to get all the nutrients and vitamins we need out of the food we eat. This is why multi-vitamins are so great. We can take one and get the extra that we need in our diets.
