Probably not: Nobody knows for sure, but it is likely that supplements and vitamins won't replace fruits or vegetables in a complete way. You see, fruits and vegetables come in packages of multiple substances; vitamins, proteins, fiber and others. It would be impossible to reproduce the exact "package." better to keep trying different forms of these foods, such as dried, steamed, boiled, blended or dehydrated.

Nutrition: The best nutrition is from our food but soil is depleted and food has chemical in it. A good multivitamin is an insurance for poor diet but not a replacement. Centrum and similar ones are very weak. Choose one from a place like GNC or Vitamin Shoppe. See a nutritionist for a food plan that fits your needs. Peace and good health.
