    First of all, i would like to understand what you mean by “generally healthy”? Do you mean a generally healthy person do not lack or has less amount of a particular nutrient?
     In my understanding, if you don’t have any deficiency in the suppliment you’re taking, then it’s not going to make any difference. Its only going to make a difference if you have less than what your body needs or you’re completely lacking. 

    Thanks for that added evidence. It was really helpful.

    Great question!  By generally healthy, I mean that you are not malnourished. You don’t have scurvy or you’re not vitamin A deficient or deficient in any other micronutrient. So, I’m pretty much referring to the vast majority of people who would think of taking a supplement that wasn’t prescribed by their doctor.

    For example, if you do not have a biotin deficiency taking 16,000% of the recommended daily allowance of biotin will have no impact on your hair growth.
