Vitamins are essential ingredients of diet and help to maintain body metabolism.
They do not provide energy to the body.
Apart from being overprescribed, large-scale self medication is also prevalent.
The belief that vitamins are harmless is incorrect.
Fat soluble vitamins (A,D,E, and K) can cause serious toxicity.
Multivitamins in large doses end up as being excreted as waste from the body via urine and feces.
Unregulated multivitamin therapy is an irrational pharmaceutical gimmick that must be discouraged.
