The BIG Multivitamin

A new study performed by scientists in Stockholm Sweden has revealed people who take multivitamin supplements maybe less likely to have a heart attack.

This study on a Swedish population revealed that those who took a multivitamin supplement every day showed a significantly lower risk of myocardial infarction (heart attack) than those who did not take supplements, irrespective of individual differences in diet.

Due to their location and climate, Swedish people tend to consume relatively low amounts of fruits and vegetables and their foods are not fortified with folic acid. Therefore, the effects of supplementation in a population such as the Swedes would prove interesting. This study examined almost 3000 people (1610 men, 1200women). After adjustment for major risk factors, the risk of heart attack for men who took supplements was 21% lower than for those who did not use multivitamins. For women, the risk was reduced even further, by a third.

Supplementation showed greater benefits (reduced risk factors) than consumption of fruits and vegetables and intake of dietary fiber. This observation appears to over rule the theory that vitamins found in fruit and vegetables are more effective than taking supplements for health protective benefits.

Tremendous benefits of taking a simple multivitamin capsule every day are emerging from the scientific literature.

A recent study of residents in North Carolina has revealed that people who took a daily multivitamin suffered less illness and showed a lower rate of absenteeism from work than those receiving a placebo.

In this study, a group of 130 adults took a multivitamin/mineral supplement or placebo every day for one year. The capsule contained amounts of vitamins and minerals very similar to those found in most commercially available supplements.

Results showed that the participants receiving the placebo reported more infectious illnesses over the study year than did participants receiving the multivitamin and mineral supplement (73% versus 43% of those receiving vitamins). Infection-related absenteeism was also higher (57%) in the placebo group than in the treatment group.

Remember, this study was not performed on folks that push their immune systems to the limit with intense training. If you exercise intensely your body has a greater demand for nutrients. Anyone that exercises intensely, every week needs a potent multivitamin/mineral supplement—this appears to be an economical health insurance policy.
