To get the nutrients your body needs, you have to eat a well balanced diet. And you might supplement your diet with vitamins (or mega vitamins) to get tons of the good stuff your body needs.
In the infographic below, view a comparison of the amount of food to supplements, such as:
- 16 medium carrots are equivalent to one 2,400mcg (2.4mg) Vitamin A pill,
- one 1,000mg of Vitamin C pill is equivalent to 12 oranges,
- one 1,000mcg (1mg) of B12 is equivalent to 79 fillets of salmon.

NOTE: Visit your doctor to find out the best vitamins and dosages your body needs. If you are already taking vitamins, be sure to let your doctor know all the details about the supplements (brand, mg per pill and how often you take them).
