When it comes to vitamin supplements, you have a choice between individual vitamins and multivitamins. Loose vitamin tablets usually contain one vitamin, while multivitamins contain a combination of several vitamins and minerals. If you have a specific vitamin requirement, it is usually advisable to choose individual vitamins that meet your needs. It is worth noting that taking multivitamins for a long time can lead to an excessive buildup of certain vitamins, including vitamin B6.
Are vitamins enough for a healthy lifestyle?
Simply buy vitamins and rely on them is not enough to maintain a healthy lifestyle. A varied diet provides a wider range of essential substances than relying on supplements alone. In addition, natural vitamins from food are often better absorbed by the body than vitamins in supplement form. That is why it is important to view these supplements as an addition to a balanced diet rather than a replacement for a healthy lifestyle.

Do I get enough vitamins through my diet?
Although a healthy and varied diet theoretically provides all the necessary nutrients, most people have difficulty meeting the recommended guidelines. The Nutrition Center recommends sticking to the Wheel of Five and spending at least 30 minutes in the sun every day with the face and uncovered hands. However, shortages are still common. For example, vitamin D is mainly produced through sun exposure, so people who cannot spend enough time in the sun may benefit from vitamin D3 supplements.
Which vitamins do I need?
The specific vitamins you need depend on factors such as your stage of life, lifestyle and general health. For adult men and women (aged 18 to 69 years), the following daily doses are generally recommended:
