What I have heard about vitamins is that we get all that we need from a healthy diet. So, unless you are diagnosed with a vitamin deficiency it is not vital for you to take a supplement. There are a few exceptions though. For example if you have an indoor job and do not drink much milk you might want to take a vitamin D supplement. Another example is that a pregnant woman should take folic acid.
One issue that crops up is that a person can easily overdose on certain vitamins. From what I have read, vitamin A is a common one to overdose on. This is especially true if you follow mega-dose schemes.
I personally do not take vitamins because I go outside, drink milk, am not a pregnant woman, and I do not have a lot of extra money to spend on vitamins.
