Pleased to see that you found this article worth posting Jo.  Research has shown that most people living in northern climates, e.g. Canada, UK and Scandinavia are low on vitamin D.  I've been supplementing with it for some time now.

 

A lot of doctors believe everyone should supplement here in the UK.

 

As regards other vitamins, most are a bit of a waste of money if you eat a balanced diet.
