Rainbow Light women and men's. They are a great multivitamin and are produced in a way that gives a fantastic absorption rate.

Read this first review on Amazon, this shit is legit and cheap:

Am I one of the few who don't take multivitamins? I've never had problems with my health and every time I get a check up the doctor says I'm healthy.

The % doesn't really matter, as most usually have over 100% of your daily needs on a certain vitamin. The thing is that if you take 3000% of your daily need, you may absorb 300% while simply pissing out the other 2700%; it's a waste and a gimmick since you are paying much more as well. The most important thing is that the vitamins are food-based and are not cheaply manufactured with inferior chemical compositions that have a low quality and absorption rate like One a Day, Centrum, and GNC.

I take the Costco brand multi. It's called Kirkland Signature Daily Multi Vitamins & Minerals. It's basically their version of Centrum, and it's also USP certified. I take Kirkland Signature fish oil as well.

That's only true for water-soluble vitamins. Fat soluble ones will not be excreted that way, and you can seriously damage yourself with these huge doses.

Is there any real evidence backing up whether OTC supplements or vitamins even do anything?

Rainbow Light or Pure Essence Labs One 'n' Only for men

They do not use the cheap synthetic forms of vitamins that most companies do.

Properly taken, assuming your body has no weird conditions, it most likely can't hurt. No one has a perfect diet and I'm sure we are all deficient of certain vitamins that the body doesn't get. At ~$10 a month, it's worth a trial run IMO.

For me, I notice some extra energy and I rarely ever get sick when I take them regularly. Being able to not get a serious cold or other illness is very important to me as I'm on probation for six months as a new employee and can't afford to miss even one day, not to mention almost the entire shift I am talking to people, making my throat sore enough.

Vitamins and their effects
 
Are there side effects to the vitamins you are using?
Your skin can be affected.

What are you talking about? Take a look at the ingredients for Optimum Nutrition's Opti-Men or GNC Mega Men Sport

OP: I recommend Opti-Men or GNC Mega Men Sport
