How long can I take vit A, E, C and B-complex without having a break? What about Grape Seed Extract?

How long can I take vit A, E, C and B-complex without having a break? What about Grape Seed Extract?

Your entire life: By definition vitamins are substances essential for health. While our bodies can store A & E, we can not store C and B vitamins (except B12) so we need those every single day (from diet and/or supplements). These are all very safe so you never need a break.
Grape Seed Extract contains beneficial antioxidants and is also safe and non-toxic, so no break is needed.
