Multivitamins do not promote cardiovascular health

"We meticulously evaluated the body of scientific evidence," said study lead author Joonseok Kim, M.D., assistant professor of cardiology in the Department of Medicine at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. "We found no clinical benefit of multivitamin and mineral use to prevent heart attacks, strokes or cardiovascular death."

The research team performed a "meta-analysis," putting together the results from 18 individual published studies, including randomized controlled trials and prospective cohort studies, totaling more than 2 million participants and having an average of 12 years of follow-up. They found no association between taking multivitamin and mineral supplements and a lower risk of death from cardiovascular diseases.

"It has been exceptionally difficult to convince people, including nutritional researchers, to acknowledge that multivitamin and mineral supplements don't prevent cardiovascular diseases," said Kim. "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."

How do you know if everything on multivitamin labels tell the truth?

I have purchased the GNC Mega Men multivitamin, and I did this because it looked like it had everything. Then I looked at it some more, and I was like how am I possible getting almost all my vitamin and mineral needs out of 2 caplets of this "vitamin."


Well I take Nutrilite Double X vitamin/mineral/phytonutrient. These vitamins have helped me a lot I bought them at www.atolentino1.qhealthzone.com

When you take a multivitamin do you absorb as much of each nutrient as is listed on the label?

I heard that you only absorb about ten percent of what is on the label so if it says you get 100% rda of iron, you are only getting 10% rda of iron from it. Is that true? If it is true, how do you get the most out of a multivitamin, or what is the best


Unfortunately you do not absorb all of what the label says. Take vitamin c for example. Many vitamins claim to have 500% in the one pill. Well you do not need that much. Vitamin c is a water soluble vitamin. This means your body will process what it need


no, you do not absorb all of what is listed on the label
