Multivitamins and mineral supplements can't lower risk of cardiovascular disease

Multivitamins and minerals cannot lower the risk of cardiovascular disease according to research which looked at studies involving more than two million people.

Researchers from the US analysed 18 trials published between January 1970 and August 2016 and found “no association” between multivitamin/mineral (MVM) supplements and cardiovascular disease or coronary heart disease.

“Our meta-analysis of clinical trials and prospective cohort studies demonstrates that MVM supplementation does not improve cardiovascular outcomes in the general population,” the researchers said.

Dr Joonseok Kim, assistant professor of cardiology in the department of medicine at the University of Alabama who led the study, said: “It has been exceptionally difficult to convince people, including nutritional researchers, to acknowledge that multivitamin and mineral supplements don’t prevent cardiovascular diseases.

“I hope our study findings help decrease the hype around multivitamin and mineral supplements and encourage people to use proven methods to reduce their risk of cardiovascular diseases such as eating more fruits and vegetables, exercising and avoiding tobacco.”

just looking for a good multivitamin with the appropriate amounts and types of vitamins that fit my age. Any information on body "detoxification" would also be a plus. Trying to flush myself out and get healthy.


I would completely suggest nutrilite vitamins. There are only available online, but you can email me for the information if you want. They are made from whole plant concentrates, many of the supplements contain a wide variety of phytonutrients as well.


Usana has a great mix of multivitamins for both MALES and females. You can even search for vitamins specifically geared towards males on their website. I have been using them for about 4 months now and I feel so much better than I have in years past.
