GETTYMultivitamins do not work for helping people with their heart conditions
The experts found no association between taking multivitamin and mineral supplements and a lower risk of fatal cardiovascular disease. Nor does it reduce the risk of early death from those or other forms of cardiovascular disease (conditions affecting the heart and blood vessels).
Dr. Joonseok Kim, a cardiologist and the studys lead researcher, said its time to stop investing time and money in studying the relationship between multivitamins with minerals and heart disease and stroke because theres strong evidence they dont prevent the chronic diseases.
Controversy about the effectiveness of multivitamin and mineral supplements to prevent cardiovascular diseases has been going on for years, despite numerous well-conducted research studies suggested that they don't help. But this "marginal benefit" appeared only in studies conducted outside the United States.

People tend to prefer a quick and easy solution such as taking a pill [rather] than the more effortful method to prevent cardiovascular disease, he said. That is especially true of supplement users living in Europe and Japan. Any type of fruit or vegetable is considered to be good. During the research process, Kim and his team followed the National Institutes of Health definition of multivitamin - a dietary supplement comprising more than three vitamin and mineral ingredients.
The new findings come on the heels of prior studies which showed that supplements have few, if any, health benefits.
As for Kim, he hopes the new study "dampens the hype of multivitamins and mineral supplements, and encourages people to focus on the real issues like diet, exercise, [and] smoking cessation".
But Americans have been stubbornly slow in accepting that message. Kim says this is due to the popular belief that multivitamin supplements may help maintain and promote health by preventing various diseases, including cardiovascular disease.
Millions of Americans take multivitamins as a quick fix for the nutrients missing from their diets. The annual cost of these and other dietary supplements comes to more than $32 billion a year.
"The inadequate intake of these micronutrients creates a "hidden hunger" that could be partly addressed by supplements like MVM and correct the associated less-than-optimal daily structure/function of our cells and physiological systems", said Blumberg, who wasn't involved with the review. And in some cases, the supplements may actually do harm. One study found that too much vitamin E may raise the risk of prostate cancer.
