CVD Outcomes Not Improved by Taking Multivitamins/Minerals

HealthDay News — Multivitamin/mineral (MVM) supplementation seems not to be associated with cardiovascular disease (CVD) outcomes, according to a review published online July 10 in Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes .

Joonseok Kim, M.D., from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, and colleagues conducted a comprehensive literature review to examine the correlation between MVM supplementation and CVD outcomes including coronary heart disease (CHD) and stroke. Data from 18 studies with 2,019,862 participants and 18,363,326 person-years of follow-up were included in the analysis.

The researchers found that there was no correlation between MVM supplementation and CVD mortality, CHD mortality, stroke mortality, or stoke incidence (relative risks, 1 [95 percent confidence interval, 0.97 to 1.04], 1.02 [95 percent confidence interval, 0.92 to 1.13], 0.95 [95 percent confidence interval, 0.82 to 1.09], and 0.98 [95 percent confidence interval, 0.91 to 1.05]). In prespecified subgroups, and after adjustment for diet, smoking, physical activity, and study site, there was no correlation between MVM supplements and CVD or CHD mortality. MVM use was associated with reduced risk of CHD incidence (relative risk, 0.88; 95 percent confidence interval, 0.79 to 0.97); in pooled subgroup analysis of randomized controlled trials, this correlation did not remain significant (relative risk, 0.97; 95 percent confidence interval, 0.8 to 1.19).

I am wanting to start to take a multivitamin with minerals, but do they all contain minerals when it just says multivitamin, and which brands are the best?

Good Multivitamin-minerals for Women?

Can anyone recommend a good multi-vit-min for me? I was also wondering if there were any Canadian standards with regards to recommended daily intake amounts... I really want to be taking something that is high quality and safe.


I use Dr. Micheal Murray's formulation by Natural Factors, for women my age. I like it, covers all the basics. It is just basics though, if you have extra needs, take them individually for best benefit - I supplement A, C, E and B complex.
