Humans do not make their own vitamins, and they must get them from food or a supplement. Almost 80 percent of Americans do not eat at least five helpings of fruits and vegetables a day, the recommended minimum amount believed to provide sufficient essential nutrients. Even people who eat five daily servings of fruits and vegetables may not get enough of certain vitamins for optimum health. That is why it is prudent to take at least one multivitamin pill each day, as well as fish oil supplements to provide omega-3 fatty acids.
If you’re new to supplementing your diet with vitamins and minerals, this essential supplement pack will get you started on the right foot. No hype, nothing you don’t need.

Although vitamin deficiency is infrequently encountered in developed countries, many groups of people many be at risk of inadequate intake of some nutrients that are associated with fighting chronic disease. People who get enough vitamins and minerals may be able to prevent common chronic illnesses such as cancer, heart disease and osteoporosis.
