Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

If you're otherwise well and don't have any significant challenges in your food supply, then it's my opinion that supplements are not necessary.

Be sure to ask your care provider if your diet has adequate amounts of vitamin D and calcium, as these are often deficient in North American and European diets. If you're diet (or vitamin D levels) are low, then taking specific supplements might be recommended.

Hope that helps, BY
