Does amway's multi vitamin tablets really work? If so can I stop taking fruits and protein rich foods? Is it sufficient if i eat energy rich foods?

"really work" BUT...: I am not sure what you mean by "really work" but they will provide a source of vitamins & minerals. However, supplements are not a substitute for a healthy diet. Fruits have many beneficial phytonutrients not found in vitamin tablets. Vitamins do not contain any protein. I'm not sure what you mean by energy rich foods but sugars & simple carbs are among the least healthy foods to eat! ...Read more
