Dear Doc

I want to take vitamins and not on medication as yet, please tell me which vitamins are good for me, vitamins contains everything?

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

Call me orthodox, call me a doubter, but if you have access to adequate amounts of food and eat a balanced diet, I don't see much benefit clinically in vitamin supplements.

At most, I recommend to my American patients that they take a simple once-daily multivitamin (without supplemental iron). BY

drug holiday?
