In brief: Colorful diet

Unless you are deficient in vitamins or minerals, I am not a strong proponent of mutliple supplements.
Generally a calcium/d supplement(women), a baby Aspirin if your disease requires it. Otherwise, most studies support that a colorful diet rich in heathy fats, veggies, fruits and lean on meats and processed foods is superior to any extra pills.
