Which daily supplements should I take?

Nutrition & Dietetics
Although you know enough about calories and nutrients to feed yourself properly, it's hard to get every nutrient you need from food alone. Statistics show that less than 10% of North Americans get enough of the recommended nutrients in their daily diet. Research done at the University of California at Berkeley concludes that three specific vitamins should be taken regularly, even if your diet is healthy: antioxidant vitamins C and beta-carotene, and the B vitamin folacin. I also recommend a daily supplement that contains 100% of the recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for vitamins and minerals. That way, you know you're covered!
