Many are taking vitamins and supplements unnecessarily

Many people taking vitamins and supplements in Door County may not be getting any effect from them. Doctor Ronald Kodras, Internal Medicine Physician at Door County Medical Center, says an average healthy person probably doesn't need to take any vitamins or supplements. Many people get all the vitamins they need from their diet and taking additional doses doesn't give any additional benefit as the body is unable to process it. Kodras says taking additional vitamins will probably not negatively affect you, however supplements may be a different story.



Kodras says its healthiest to gain all or most of your vitamin and supplements needs through your diet. He added to ask your physician if you should be taking any vitamins or supplements before starting anything new.
