Scientific advancements support the position that people who get enough vitamins may be able to prevent getting such devastating illnesses such as cancer, heart disease and osteoporosis, but health experts are increasingly worried that most Americans do not consume sufficient amounts of vitamins in their diets alone. That's why the Journal of the American Medical Association advises all adults to take at least one vitamin supplement every day.
Vitamins A, B, C and D form the basics of good health; vitamin A helps maintain the eyes, skin and teeth. B is essential for nervous system health. C supports immune function, and D maintains bone health. New research supports that a daily dose of vitamin D may lower the risk of common cancers by as much as 50%.
