This week's question: Do I really need to take a multivitamin every day?

St-Mary-LogoDanny G.: A multivitamin is rarely a bad idea, but often they are built up as greater feats of nature that advertised. A proper diet will always have more of an impact than any vitamin, or any pill for that matter. But, if your diet is missing viable nutrients they can be used to help out a diet in need. However, always look to change your diet first.
