The benefits of vitamin supplements
Most people do not need to take vitamin supplements, but in some situations, taking the pills may provide health benefits.
Ask the doctor
Q. Are vitamin supplements (like vitamin D) good for your health, and can you tell me who might benefit from taking the pills?
A. Most of us living in developed nations and eating a balanced diet don't need a daily multivitamin or specific vitamin pills—but there are situations where we do.
