Weekly Wisdom – Need a multivitamin?

Need a multivitamin? Vitamins won’t prolong your life or keep you from getting sick.
But they can fill in “gaps” if you don’t get what you need from your diet.

Before you buy:

  • Look for a QA seal: USP or NSF label
  • “Whole Food” multivitamins aren’t necessarily better-there is little evidence they are absorbed better
  • Don’t spend more than 10 cents a day-there is almost no connection between price & quality
