Nothing special: If you eat healthy meals with ample amounts of veggies and fruits along with whole grains, you will get adequate amounts of vitamins. So you hardly need to take any vitamin supplements. The only vitamin supplement if you want to take anything at all, would be vitamin-c which appears to have some beneficail effect in enhancing your immune system but even this is debated.
