While the medical community argues over whether we need vitamin supplements, the general public voice their opinion loud and clear - we like and want vitamin supplements to aide our nutritional intake.
Many experts argue that if you eat a balanced diet, you shouldn't need vitamin supplements. What that tends to ignore is that many of us eat a less than perfect diet, lead stressful lives, are exposed daily to a range of pollutants, and our relaxation is likely to take the form of a long run or a hard exercise class. The result? Our bodies are put under stress, and we seek out any assistance we can to keep going.
