In my 20s, I kept a bottle of multivitamins in my kitchen cabinet. Every so often, I’d reach in there and grab a vitamin. More often than not, I ignored that bottle. Out of sight, out of mind. I started taking multivitamins more often once I reached my early 30s, assuming they would help with various health conditions.
But do I really need to take those vitamins? Are they helping me — or could they be hurting me?
In the coming weeks, we’ll explore vitamins and supplements and clear up some of the mystery. You’ll get answers to these questions:
- Why do we need vitamins?
- What vitamins should I take if I’m pregnant?
- Do my kids need to take vitamins?
- How do I get vitamins in my daily diet?
- And lots more!
Plus, we’ll share some vitamin-rich recipes you can try at home.
Check back here on Thursdays to find out everything you ever wanted to know — and a little more — about vitamins and your health. And be sure to comment and share your ideas and questions with us!
