There are only 13 actual vitamins, and you'll die without them

. “They are miraculous because we need them to prevent diseases, but that was really taken advantage of by food marketers and the dietary supplement industry.” In the book, she argues that just because we need vitamins doesn’t mean that more is necessarily a good thing.

And it’s not. The National Institutes of Health notes that “some ingredients found in dietary supplements are added to a growing number of foods, including breakfast cereals and beverages. As a result, you may be getting more of these ingredients than you think, and more might not be better.” Too much vitamin A can cause liver damage and birth defects. Too much iron can lead to vomiting. And besides, they note, “supplements can’t take the place of the variety of foods that are important to a healthy diet.”

No article or Instagram influencer can tell you, an individual, whether you need supplemental vitamins. You’d need to go to a certified nutritionist (you can find one here ) who can analyze your diet, or even to a physician who’ll do testing to evaluate your measurable vitamin levels. Barring that, though, your best bet is to think more carefully about where you get those 13 essential vitamins from. You’re perfectly capable of getting them all from your diet—assuming that you don’t have a disease that prevents you from properly absorbing them—so thoughtful groceries can easily replace that multivitamin. And getting your nutrition from whole foods is always better than getting it from a pill.
