1. Fish Oil: Fish oil is an anti-inflammatory; its health benefits have been linked to cardiovascular disease, arthritis and cancer risk. Currently, the FDA does not have an official daily recommendation.

2. Multivitamins: Although multivitamin use has decreased since 2008, many people still rely on their daily doset. There is no harm in taking a multivitamin, but if you have a varied diet you might not even need to take a daily multivitamin.

3. Vitamin D: More women than men take vitamin D supplements. Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium and can decrease risk for breast, colorectal, ovarian and other cancers. Research has shown that it helps with backaches, lowering diabetes risk and dealing with depression.
