Stacy Wiegman, PharmD, Pharmacy, answeredTherapeutic vitamins with minerals provide a combination of the many different vitamins and minerals that food would normally provide. Sometimes a person is deficient in certain vitamins and minerals because of a digestive disorder, illness, medication interaction, poor diet or pregnancy. The supplements provide the vitamins and minerals that the body needs to function. They are manufactured under a wide variety of brand names available either as a prescription or over-the-counter.
