The multivitamin is a good idea, but make sure it has your basic minerals and stuff to because most people are low in some of those. I used to get/be sick all the time because of that. Also the research I have done has lead me to believe most vitamins out there are not as effective as they could be because they are not in the form your body knows how to really make use of them. MegaFoods is supposed to be some of the best. They put the vitamins and minerals in the plant soil. Then the plants absorb the nutrients and change them into a form we can use. The company makes the vitamins and minerals from the plants. Theirs are non GMO and they use a lot of organic (not enough to be classified as such), and they use a lot of local farmers. The cheapest place I have found to buy them is our local Sprouts store.

Another thing might be good to take in addition to this is vitamin D. Many doctors tend to not be proponents of taking a multivitamin because many of them are not convinced the evidence supports that they are helpful. That is kind of a typical western doctor thing and shouldn't really be taken as strong evidence they can't be effective. However, even for many of those same doctors, the evidence is strong enough for them to recommend taking vitamin D. It is hard to get enough of it safely from sun exposure, although that may be possible if you have enough antioxidants in your diet.
