Do you take a daily dose of vitamins and minerals?

As the temperature drops and coughs and colds spread, shops are filling up with vitamin tablets and adverts promising they will boost our immune systems and protect us from getting ill. 

But how effective are these supplements?  None of us really know the answer to that question. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), which provides national guidance on health and social care, said that certain people who are at risk of deficiencies should consider taking supplements.

What are your views on taking daily vitamins and minerals?  How do you know if your diet is deficient?  Do you eat enough fruit and vegetables to maintain a healthy lifestyle or do you take supplements to be on the safe side?  What health improvements have you noticed by taking vitamin or mineral supplements?
