Most Americans that: eat a diet including fruits, vegetables, grains, dairy products and varied proteins (fish, chicken, beef) receive a sufficient amount of vitamins and minerals such that supplements in general are unnecessary. Many of the dairy and grain products are already supplemented. Very high concentrations of the supplements you are taking could theoretically contribute to heart failure. Especially iron.
