Multivitamins: Good for You or Not? Experts Weigh In

Some experts say taking a daily multivitamin is a waste of time, but others say they have value. What should you do?

When it comes to health, many people swear by vitamins as a part of their wellness regimen, and I’m one of them.  If I go too many days without my multivitamin, I feel tired.  But research shows that taking a multivitamin may not do what you’re expecting. There is not a lot of evidence that shows your vitamin and mineral cocktail is the panacea for the healthy lifestyle you seek.  In the majority of studies there is no benefit from multivitamins in protecting the brain or heart. But there is optimism from experts at Harvard.
