HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - In Henrico, Dr. Hayden Pasco has all the details on multivitamins.

We discuss the pros and cons in this week's Neighborhood Health Watch.

She tells us that multivitamins are a great way to make sure we are getting our minerals and micronutrients.

She suggests that you avoid multivitamins with added herbal additives due to potential side effects.

It is very important to remember that less is more. It is possible to overdose on vitamins. Follow instructions on the bottle.
