I just had a Twitter question about a good multivitamin so I thought I’d put up a quick post! I stopped taking a multivitamin a few years ago because of conflicting information floating around. I just wasn’t sure that I needed to take one. Then I read Breakthrough, got a preventative health doctor and learned [...]
