Multivitamins May Not Help Men's Hearts

And Schiff believes that -- at least for women -- a lack of nutrients may contribute to heart risks, so outcomes might be different for females.

For example, she said, "some studies indicate that a vitamin D deficiency may be a risk factor for congestive heart failure , high blood pressure , strokes and heart attacks ."

But so far, studies involving women and multivitamins have had mixed results, Schiff added, and more research might still be needed.

"Perhaps some kind of nutritional shortfall may be responsible for an increased risk of heart disease in women," she said. "These studies don't necessarily prove cause and effect, but there may be some kind of correlation. The best way to find out would be for more randomized clinical trials with large sample sizes to be conducted."

Sesso agreed. "Given the continued high prevalence of multivitamin use in the U.S., it remains critical for us to understand its role on nutritional status and other long-term health outcomes through clinical trials," he said.

Don't worry about it. No multivitamin will push you over your daily recommended amount for fat soluble vitamins and minerals. That is what you have to worry about. The water soluble ones like vitamin C and B will be peed out. Every single multivitamin


I wouldn't do that. Just from a common sense perspective, older people have a lot more deficiencies than younger people, so their vitamins are probably more concentrated than what someone your age requires. and there is such a thing as "too much


due to individual susceptibility, i wouldn't recommend it, but if you feel you absolutely have to instead of taking one a day womens or something, then be careful.
