Need advice on a vitamin regimin for myself.

I don't take any vitamins. Never really have. Not long ago someone at work gave me a packet that included 7 vitamins in it. I'll be honest- I don't know what they were- but I was amazed that I felt different, better, more energized that day. Maybe it was in my head- but maybe not. So my question is- what would you say are the MUST HAVES as far as vitamins go? I know the answer would somewhat depend on what your diet is like- but I'd like to start a vitamin regimin and really don't know where to begin? I'm 36. I'm not a vegitarian or completely organic shopper- but I try to stay away from pocessed foods. I don't do fast food- Your suggestions are welcome!

  • As long as you are not pregnant, I would just buy a Centrum Vitamin & you could add a vitamin D.

  • I was taking a multivitamin and then started watching Dr. Oz. He recommended one that had 100% of several vitamins and I realized my vitamin was not up to those levels. So, I found a new one and feel better taking it. Go to Dr. Oz's website and put vitamins in the search bar (not question bar) GL!

  • Most diets don't contain enough magnesium these days. I've always taken calcium, but when I switched to calcium with magnesium, I felt so much better.
