Hello Folks, Now days, there are so many ads on TV, Newspaper, magazine and internet about multivitamin. I am little bit confuse about them, should I take them or not. Because my elders said you should take a healthy diet, or fruits, salad, these are sufficient for me, but I read on internet that we should take multivitamin daily, because now days food is not pure. What do all of you think.?

a multi has nothing to do with how pure the food is, just how many vitamins are in it. if you eat fast food all the time, then yes, you should take a multi but if you eat healthy, perhaps you don;t need to. i don't really like to eat and don't get enough fruits and veggies, so i do take a multi.

That depends on your lifestyle I grow and raise most of mynown food and eat extremely healthy so I don't need them but most people live off of store naught food and fast food all of which is so full or chemicals nd preservatives its rediculas that's why more and more people need vitamins because very few people live a healthy lifestyle

In today's diet conditions, it is important to take multivitamins. Yes, of course, nothing beats fresh food, more natural ones, those that are fresh from gardens. But in today's modern living, can you afford to take all the required nutrients from those fresh harvest? I doubt. That's why food supplements and multivitamins are needed today.

I am not really sure about this.. But i have been taking multivitamins or just vitamin Cs ever since i was young since it boosts up my immune system, my parents make me take it. My first mulitvitamins was Flintstones.. yummy.. it does make my immune system stronger though.
