I take loads of supplements due to an autoimmune condition. Autoimmune diseases are typical for causing fatigue. I've been prescribed some of my supplements, but others I've researched and added on my own (with the approval of my specialists).
Yes. When I skip those supplements I feel the difference. It may not be immediate, but within a day or so I'm dragging around listlessly. I only take one multivitamin - but those are usually on the low end of our RDAs. The other things I take, I take individually - not as multi "specialty cures". I take each one to address a particular symptom or perceived deficiency (or to prevent a deficiency). I log everything on my Nutrition Tracker (a scary thing to see, if you want to look!) so I remember to take them.
PLEASE CONSULT YOUR PHYSICIAN when adding anything to your dietary plan! If you're on any meds, or taking other supplements, someone other than ourselves needs to be monitoring those additives. Even herbals can react with each other, and many interact with Rx products, making them ineffective, or possibly increasing their effects. A pharmacist can help you with those aspects also.
I firmly believe that we can affect our health with nutrition, both beneficially and negatively. But we have to do so responsibly, and in partnership with our healthcare providers. Just be careful in what you choose and how you make those choices. Don't fall for the popular "fad" supplements. Do your due diligence. Your health will reflect it!

...the problem with people these days is
they've forgotten we're really just animals ...
We did not create the web of life; we are but a strand in it.
We don't have souls. We ARE souls. We have bodies.
