A good intake of vitamins each day can bring us good health, energy, and rejuvenation. Even though vitamins taken though natural sources such as fruits and vegetables are much more beneficial as compared to vitamins taken through food supplements, sometimes the food we eat is not rich in vitamins. When it is not possible to get enough nutrition from your diet each day, it is always recommended to take vitamin supplements for good health. Vitamins taken either way are actually required by our bodies for good health and energy. Although, vitamins are necessary for our body and they are required in excessive quantities by our body in case of illness, the overdose of vitamins can be harmful than useful at times.
