I do take a multivitamin every day for woman over 50 but I have read either on the news or TV that the jury is still out regarding taking them. Some say that if you get enough nutrition, you dont need them. If you look at the labels, they list vitamins, minerals from A-Z practically. My thinking was that no amount of food you ingest in a day has all those vitamins. I mean, I don't think they add weight, or they. I have taking them regularly for a long time. And women over 50 like me they are essential. What do you think about them.
