Assuming one eats right, one should receive all the nutrients they "Need."

However, aside from the fact that few if any actually eat "right" why should that prohibit the body from having all the nutrients it can use?

A tomato plant will grow in even the poorest of soils yet, if we add nutrients, it will be healthy and strong thereby producing more and better fruits.

Taking supplements is no different. Just be careful not to over indulge. Good advice on the consumption of anything. With the Exception, of course, of Beer.

I rest my case,
Every body absorbs different nutrients at different rates, and has different needs depending on the overall physical health. It's not a 'one size fits all' situation.

Apparently, my body retains iron more than the average body, so I avoid taking supplements that contain iron. But I enjoy a good fresh spinach, sauteed with coconut oil and garlic, or steamed with sage on occasion.

Beer contains good things, but the fermentation can have a wicked backlash.

Like I said, moderation.

As for different needs, yes that is true. What it means, of course, would be that no one should ingest anything without knowledge.

I'm an outside person who get plenty of sun, and uses only fresh or frozen foods, unprocessed meats and dairy, in a Mediterranean style diet.. So my vitamin "D" intake is more than adequate.
So is "C" and "A"

As for beer, I really don't partake much. An occasional Boston lager Sam Adams. so....;B1 thru B6 not so much.

Nuts provide omegas, selenium and trace minierals.

I am of the belief that no malady, which can be helped or cured by diet and exercise, should be treated by any other means.

Why. I'm 70 & Ugly as hell, but still vibrant. Looks are from our genes and have nothing to do with healthy living.

I agree. Synthetic pharmaceuticals quite often cause more problems then they solve. Reading the 'side effects' is just down right scary. My all time favorite "May cause diarrhea and the inability to control it'.

Certain herbs, herb extracts, diet and exercise can address most non-critical issues. But unfortunately, unless you have the knowledge, and grow your own, you really don't know what you are getting.
