Multivitamin Use By Older Men Does Not Affect Cardiovascular Health

November 5, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
An older man’s likelihood of experiencing a heart attack, stroke, or death from cardiovascular disease is not reduced by taking a daily multivitamin, a U.S. study has found. The researchers noted that there remains some doubt about the long-term benefits of daily multivitamin use, especially as a way to prevent cardiovascular disease. For the study, researchers analyzed data regarding multivitamin use and major cardiovascular events from a large trial – 14,641 physicians were enrolled – designed to look at multivitamin impact on cancer. They found no significant effect on rates of congestive heart failure, angina, and coronary revascularization, or on total heart attacks, stroke, or other cardiovascular events.
