Is it important to take vitamins?

You can get all the vitamins you need from the foods you eat, but taking a multi-vitamin once a day is a good idea.

Multi-vitamins can be taken once a day after eating or even every other day.

If you take a multi-vitamin, be sure to check the expiration date on the bottle.

Ask your doctor if you have any questions about taking multi-vitamins.
