Our expert says:
Recent research has indicated that the intake of exccessive amounts of vitamins and certain minerals can be harmful. If you are using a balanced slimming diet (?) then you need only take a multivitamin and mineral supplement about 2-3 times a week. If you are not having 3 servings of milk and dairy products per day then you will require the calcium supplement because adult women need 1200 mg of calcium a day. Once you stop dieting and are eating a balanced diet and stop smoking, you won't need to take any vitamin or mineral supplements.
