Dr. Oz recommends taking Multivitamin, Vitamin D, supplemented with Calcium and Magnesium, and Omega-3 fatty acids daily. Dr. Oz provides his reasoning for importance of these specific supplements in this video:

Key statements from the video presentation:

- Take Multivitamin from a reputable manufacturer. Must have A, B, C, D, E vitamins.

- Most manufactures do not put enough Vitamin D. Take Vitamin D (1000-1200 IU, total with Multivitamin) with Calcium (1000 mg) and Magnesium (500 mg); Dr. Oz prefers Vitamin D/Calcium/Magnesium combination as a lozenges. [Dr. Oz uses bottle with Vitamin D3 in the video.]

- Take some source of Omega-3 fats, preferably DHA. DHA is the most important for brain function. Natural sources include salmon, sardines and other fish. Alternatively, can get Omega-3 fats from Fish Oil and from vegetarian sources.

- Fish do not make Omega-3 fatty acids; they eat Omega-3s from plankton.

- Omega-3s do not cause problems with bleeding.

- Why add vitamins to our diet? Less than 1% of population have adequate intake of vitamins, minerals and nutrients.

    If you are in USA, which I assume from your email address, you can buy these:

    Caltrate with or without Vitamin D3 (Pfizer brand, chewable Calcium supplement)
    Magnesium (Nature Made brand; soft gel capsule)
    Vitamin D3 (Walgreens brand; soft gel capsules)

    The above listed items are examples of what you can buy. I am sure if you research you will find a lot of good alternatives. Like Dr Oz, I recommend you stick with major pharmaceutical companies like Pfizer, or major drug retailers like Walgreens. They put their reputation on the line and will not sell poor quality products. If you have two equivalent products sold for similar price, go with the one made by a reputable well known company. If you also look for a Omega-3 source, choose triglyceride, natural form, instead of ethyl ester form, unnatural one.
