Multivitamins fulfill your nutritional needs for the day. Take half in the morning and half at night.
2. VITAMIN D
If preventing colon, prostate and breast cancers, building strong bones, fighting off colds and slowing aging sound like a good deal to you, look for it all in one simple package: vitamin D.

5. FOLIC ACID
Folic acid is a must for any woman who has even a slight chance of becoming pregnant. Even for women who aren’t trying to get pregnant, folic acid is needed to make DNA and red blood cells.
