survey in germany

About a third of them take vitamins and supplements regularly

About a third of Germans take vitamins from supplements at least once a week. One in six swallows the vitamins each day in the form of tablets, capsules or liquids, the survey showed.

However, in most cases, this is not necessary, according to experts. With a balanced and varied diet, the body receives almost all vitamins in sufficient quantities. “Anyone who takes high doses of vitamins without being necessary risks oversupply and therefore unwanted health effects,” Andreas Hensel, president of BfR, explained.
