Re: ex smoker
If you eat a good healthy diet, get plenty of exercise and get a decent amount of natural sun light on your skin for a minimum of 6 months per year then you don't actually need to take a multi-vitamin supplement.
If however you don't do any or all of these then:
1. Get your vitamin and mineral levels particularly vitamin D checked by a medical practitioner
2. Only supplement the vitamins and minerals that you are deficient or insufficient in especially the fat soluble ones like Vitamins A, D and E.
Oh and being thin doesn't mean you won't have heart or circulatory problems. Doing regular exercise and eating properly are more important than your weight (unless you are clinically obese). Especially in your case as you are an ex-smoker it's important that you get a medical check up before you start a regular exercise program due to the damage smoking causes. Your lung capacity could already be damaged and you may also have undiagnosed circulatory problems.
