The Multivitamins Rumour

Rumour: Multivitamins prevent heart disease.

Truth: This is false.

A common belief about multivitamins is that they promote health and prevent disease. Unlike other medications, there are no laws that require The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to approve the safety and health benefits of multivitamins. Multivitamin labels are not authorized to make claims of curing, treating or preventing any diseases.

There is not enough evidence to suggest that multivitamins prevent heart disease, however, many individuals still continue to believe so. To determine the effects of multivitamins on preventing heart disease, researchers reviewed previous studies to assess any relationship. The studies involved over two million participants with a standard follow-up time of 12 years. The results of this review were published in Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes.

The researchers found that there was no association between using multivitamins and death due to heart disease. Using multivitamins will not prevent heart disease despite the popular belief. The American Heart Association suggests that there is no substitution for a balanced and nutritious diet to keep hearts healthy. To read more about this study click here.
