I want to say they are good for you, but, all the same, I don't really use them. I will munch some Vitamin C gummies when I'm feeling sick, because I don't get enough Vita C in my normal diet. It seems to help me fight off whatever I have faster, but, it could also just be a placebo effect.
My g/f has taken vitamin supplements before, but to be honest, we're not really sure if they helped or not. I want to say they did, but during that time, we made so many changes to our diets, that it could be all factors in play. Sorry I'm not much help. :\

Liquid vitamins seem to work well, not the pill form.
A coworker of mine saved her daughter's life using liquid B vitamins and Folic Acid. She had that skin disease that Michael Jackson supposedly had, Vitiligo I believe, and the doctors said she was not doing well and could die from it.
When the doctor left the room, a nurse with a conscience told her to try the liquid vitamins. She tried it out, and her daughter recovered fully. It was a vitamin deficiency she was suffering from.
The body doesn't really absorb pills as well as the liquid filled capsules. Some CNA's I know call pill vitamins "bed pan bullets" because these elderly can't really break down the pills and absorb the vitamins.
