A 20-year-old female asked:
Can you take extra supplements along with a daily multi vitamin, or would that result in an unhealthy or unnecessary excess of certain vitamins?

Waste of money: A cheap daily multivitamin is intended to cover everybody in normal health even if they need a little more than the next person. The pricey vitamins are sold by people who are trying to mislead you. Don't reward them.
