One of the things that the health companies don’t want is for people to not take vitamins but instead take drugs to treat their problems. I think this may be apart of the reason they wrote up this article.
However, I also feel that you should only take vitamins if you are dead certain you are deficient in certain ones. For instance, we have little vitamin C on the diet so its a good one to have. We also might not get enough essential fatty acids as well.
I had a post last week where I talked about how I supplemented myself with calcium, magnesium, and zinc for the last 2 years or so daily. I was taking 100% DV. Anyways, I developed some heart problems a few weeks ago and its because my calcium levels were too high.
Certain vitamins like calcium have drawbacks, especially for men. I would only stick with ones that are safe. Biotin, vitamin C, and vitamin K have no drawbacks if you supplement with them.
Vitamin C also could be made from GMO corn so be sure to research your vitamin C supplement because it could pose problems.
