In brief: Not really

Vitamins are an essential requirement of normal body function.
Any severe vitamin deficiency can have dire effects. The good news is that few americans have vitamin deficiencies other than vitamin d among those who get little sun exposure, and vitamin B12 among vegans and seniors. Avoid deficiencies by eating a variety of fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts, and whole grains and some wild salmon.
