Multivitamins ‘won’t prevent heart disease deaths or strokes’

Experts said multivitamins did not have the same benefits as eating fruit and vegetables

"You might be prescribed a vitamin or mineral supplement by a health professional for other reasons, but we do not recommend people take multivitamins to help prevent heart and circulatory diseases which this review supports".

Dietary supplements are also not FDA-approved for safety or effectiveness.

This famously included a drug that was dubbed the "limitless" pill - after the film of the same name about a miracle pill that turned subjects into super humans - marketed as a supplement that would sharpen your senses, increase brain productivity and create a happy chemical balance in the brain.

Researchers say the best vitamins and minerals come from the produce aisle, not a pill bottle.

It is also in agreement with the results of a recent study conducted by David Jenkins and colleagues from the University of Toronto in Canada, which showed that the most commonly used supplements have no consistent benefits in reducing the risk of heart disease, stroke, and premature death.

The largely unregulated supplement industry is doing a booming business, with a projected value of $278 billion by 2024, Kim's team noted. More than 2 million participants were involved in all of the studies.

However, there are a number of previously published studies that suggest that multivitamins and minerals aren't actually worth it when it comes to the health of the heart.

They published their findings in the journal Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes, which is published by the American Heart Association.

Based on the analysis, the researchers found that taking multivitamins did not prevent heart attacks, strokes, and death from cardiovascular disease.

"Simply put, multivitamins and mineral supplements do not improve cardiovascular health outcomes, so [they] should not be taken for that objective", added Kim.

A new study confirms that taking multivitamins can not reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke, and death from cardiovascular disease.

"It has been exceptionally hard to convince people... to acknowledge that multivitamin and mineral supplements don't prevent cardiovascular diseases", study lead author Dr. Joonseok Kim, an assistant professor of cardiology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, said in a statement.

Dr. Eduardo Sanchez, the American Heart Association's chief medical officer for prevention and chief of the Association's Centers for Health Metrics and Evaluation, who was not a part of this study, commented: "Eat a healthy diet for a healthy heart and a long, healthy life".

"Rather than taking multivitamins, focus on eating a healthy, balanced diet which includes plenty of fruit, vegetables, wholegrains, fish and unsaturated fats like olive oil".
