From the stories I have read, it seems that too much vitamins are not nessary good for you.
I have also read that most people eating a balanced diet should be getting most, to all of the vitamins that they need.

So my query is, if you currently sick*, would taking vitamins be of any benefit and if so, which vitamins?

*colds, flu, stomach bug, etc

for normal living a balanced diet would suffice I think...when I trained 6 hours a day, I was obliged to take extra vitamins especially B and E (but you had to take enough) for stamina because you cannot eat sufficient to make up the shortfall...if you take too many vitamins you body just gets rid of it, except for A and D which could be toxic/damaging in large quantities: much of the hype around vitamins is bullshit.

I took some vitamin supplements once, and was shocked to note that it turned my pee day-glo green. Surely such an observation, especially at a quarter past six in the morning, can't be good for the nerves.

Didn't check - there are limits to what I consider the reasonable use of bodily fluids. 0:)
