Should I take a multivitamin or not?

I used to take multivitamins for years!!!! I took them for at least 15 years, then one day I heard on news that they were not good for you to take.. so I stopped. But, I don't know how they wouldn't be good for you to take, everything I read about them is good for you. I even heard the folic acid helps reduce strokes in adults, so that is a plus! Just was wondering what everyone's opinions were on taking a daily Women/ Mens multivitamin.

Also, I am soon to be turning over the hill of 40 years old, believe I had a hot flash. has anyone tried that i-cool stuff at walmart? I wonder if it is good and safe to use? or is magnesium better? )

I do not know about hot flashes, but vitamins are good to take in my opinion as long as you take the right amounts. A regular multivitamin would suffice. There's a lot of research to be found on the benefits of vitamins online. Ask your doctor about it if you are concerned.

It is practically impossible to get all of the vitamins & minerals you need regardless of what kind or what quantity or quality of food you eat. Everyone needs excellent vitamins & minerals. My husband is off of all his medication because he is taking excellent quality supplements.

I spray plant derived minerals on my skin for Hot Flashes - it is great. It is also good for those humid days to keep you cool and not sticky!
