Not needed; consciou: For the "average" individual without any health problems eating a Western diet, multivitamins aren't needed. There are exceptions, of course - you should be checked for Vitamin D deficiency if you live in the snow belt, for instance. But the average diet provides all the vitamins you need. People get more health conscious over 50; advertisers know that & target vitamin ads for that reason. TTYD GL
