If one eats a well balanced diet there is no need for daily vitamin - that said any multivitamin should work - generic centrum for example is available from walmart.... the other stuff is in such small amounts there probably is no real effect other than to increase sales.
That said, I do take a generic multivitamin like the one curmudgen mentions. It's the result of habit or wishful thinking, I suppose, but the amounts in this basic type of supplement are supposedly within safe limits.
I was actually very low in B1, B12, Magnesium, D and iron. I was supplemented and all of those levels have risen. I stopped taking them a while back ago because a lot of them have things like "Green Tea" and other stimulants in them and I didn't want an increase in the heart rate.
In the mean time I am taking Vitamin D and Calcium/Magnesium. I just wanted to add a multi because they really do make me feel more energetic.
I'll have to keep researching and check on centrum to see if they don't have all those little extra "pick me ups" in their vitamin.
