Are Vitamins Really Beneficial?

Saturday, May 1, 2010

Vitamins are the commonly asked for & prescribed medicines these days. Especially in Pakistan, every patient demands them by this phrase, “Doctor Sahab, please give me something for energy & power”. I even remember one of my high school friends, who took 3-4 tablets of his dad’s multi-vitamins before a match of tug -o- war.

But the latest research has shown that they may not be as beneficial as expected. Even some researchers have concluded that the synthetic vitamins are infact harmful to the body. Check out the following video from MSNBC to know the common myths about vitamins.

The multi-vitamin tablets can be taken by the old but for the young & healthy the recommendations are that they should be taken naturally in the form of diet.
