What are the health benefits from multivitamins and minerals?

Depends: I believe in taking vitamins and minerals that you need. When taking pharmaceutical grade vitamins (most common are fish oil, b's and d's) people feel better. If you are not getting a step up with vitamins within 3 weeks, they are not doing anything for you. Good vitamins will dissolve in vinegar within 15minutes so test yours out to see if they are any good. ...Read more

Can your body become resistant to vitamins, minerals herbs, etc? Could I build up a tolerance to the helath benefits of say garlic? Thanks.

Can your body become resistant to vitamins, minerals herbs, etc? Could I build up a tolerance to the helath benefits of say garlic? Thanks.

Forgive me...: My sense is that you are beginning to realize that the supplements you have taken are no longer -- or never have -- done all you've been told they will do. Truth is that the health benefits of garlic are minimal -- if they were real, we doctors (who aren't conspirators) would use it.
