Yes: You can certainly take all of them without having any idea of how much money you are wasting. None of these have any benefit for a 30 year old and some recent evidence suggests some you are choosing to take can actually cause harm.

It's important to carefully read the labels of any vitamins being considered, as some may contain problematic synthetic ingredients. It's also important to check studies for the specific vitamin products they used. Some of those showing increased cancer risk, etc, have used synthetic ingredients rather than natural ones.

You probably don't: Need the resveratrol at age 16. The others sound ok as long as you are in good health and have no contraindications in your history.
