In brief: Not at all

If you don't have a deficiency, supplements offer no benefit and according to some recent studies may actually cause harm. See september 2012 issue of consumer reports article on the dangers of taking vitamin supplements.
The only way to know if you have a deficiency is to be tested for it. See your doctor to discuss test options.

Most patients don't know they are deficient in vitamins and minerals. There are testing panels to assess various deficiencies. Seek an integrative medicine physician to help you decide this.

Stay as far away as possible from anyone claiming to be "integrative".
