I have read that anyone who lives north of Atlanta likely needs a Vitamin D supplement. It's not just the amount of time you spend in the sun, but the angle of the sun's rays where you live. I live in Florida, but don't spend time outdoors on a regular basis. My vitamin D, without supplements, is just barely in the acceptable range.
B12 is another supplement that we need more of as we get older. The older we get, the less efficient our body is at absorbing B12, meaning we need to supplement.
