Our expert says:
I think it is important that you tell your husband that the best way of ensuring that you ingest all the vitamins and minerals you require on a daily basis is to eat a balanced diet which contains all the food groups. Click on 'Diet' at the top of this page and then do a Search to find the article I wrote this year on "ARE VITAMIN SUPPLEMENTS FATAL?". The current approach is that we do not need to take supplements, but if you do, then it is far better to take a combined vitamin and mineral supplement because the individual vitamins and minerals work best when used in combination. However if you eat a well balanced diet and are not ill or exposed to stresses or have a proven deficiency of any one nutrient, then you don't need to take supplements. Taking individual supplements at random, is not really a good idea.
