I agree with Bilby. If you can get your vitamins from your food, you are ahead of the game. I live in the Pacific NW where we don't get a lot of sun. Vitamin D is the only one I take on a regular basis.

Supplements are only of benefit if your diet is deficient. First priority is to ensure you eat a nutritionally-balanced diet. Overloading your body with excessive vitamins you don't need is both unnecessary and unwise; all vitamins can be toxic in high quantities. Eat food and enjoy it!
I am navigating the world of vegan/vegetarianism and explored raw diets. Please excuse my ignorance but so used to taking a multivitamin daily & calcium supp spirolina supp ...and it seems almost like oxymoron but I had to ask as reading blogs i realize many do still take either a multivit or supplements or both.
