Thanks for the info



Thank you for the scheme. The info is well formulated in theses. I always thought that we get all necessary vitamins from food. However, when I found an article about vitamins on the Online Pharmacy site and then my doc confirmed that the human body needs to get vitamins additionally, cause food does not contain that necessary quantity of them even if follow a healthy diet. So now I'm taking vitamins regularly.
