• I do take a multi vitamin. It is hard to get every ounce of what they ask in this day and age. With kids and work it is very difficult to eat what the guidelines suggest. I also take a herbal supplement called Olive Leaf Extract. If you haven't heard of it then you really should check it out. It has really helped me energy wise as well as not getting so easily sick as I used to. With kids in school and working it's very easy to pick up germs. I swear by it. It helps in many many ways. It helps fight off the flu! Can't beat that! You can check it out at this site. This is also the site I order my stuff from.

    As for multi vitamins. I really think they are a necessity in today’s lifestyles of most Americans.

  • Here is my thoughts on this.

    If one was to eat a well balanced diet with all the major food groups in it vitamins would not be needed. Our current diet of fast foods and junk food makes vitamins needed. Foods should be eaten as close to their natural form as is safe, cooking them breaks down the natural vitamins in them. we don't need vitamins if we practice good dietary practice.
