I hope you won't think me flippant when I respond to your topic question with "Whatever you are deficient in." Because it is true. If you are not deficient in a vitamin, it is not going to help you. You are deficient in B12, D and Folic acid, that we know of, but you may be deficient in others by now, too. You need a full nutrient panel run, including all the vitamins, iron/ferritin, potassium, zinc, magnesium (sometimes it is not well absorbed). Taking a multivitamin normally does not provide you with sufficient to refill your tank -- it just gets you to the next gas station -- and more is initially required, then you can go on a maintenance dose. Usually, B12 can be rectified with a sublingual pill (be sure it is methylcobalamin). Vit.A normally requires doses of 50,000 iu to start.
Good luck with your testing. You might want to have the nutrient panel run before you start supplementing so that you know what to pay particular attention to.
