Multivitamins: Are They Any Good for You?
Multivitamins: Are they worth taking? Are there any benefits to your health? A new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association took a look at those questions.
FOX News Radio’s Chris Hoenig has some answers:
Multivitamins don’t really do anything when it comes to heart disease in men, according to a 50-year study from Brigham & Women’s Hospital.
(Dr. Sesso) “Taking a daily multivitamin, over the long-term, appeared to have no risk or benefit on major cardiovascular outcomes.”
…Such as heart attack and cholesterol levels. And when it comes to preventing strokes, study leader Dr. Howard Sesso says:
(Dr. Sesso) “We saw a consistent lack of effect.”
One area the multivitamins did help: cancer prevention, but only cutting the risk by 8%. A good diet, exercise and not smoking do more to lower your chance of developing cancer.
