Multivitamins, Minerals Do Not Improve Your Heart Function 07105

Patients who took multivitamins and minerals did not have improved CV outcomes, according to a review and meta-analysis published in Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes.
“Although multivitamin and mineral supplements taken in moderation rarely cause direct harm, we urge people to protect their heart health by understanding their individual risk for heart disease and stroke and working with a health care provider to create a plan that uses proven measures to reduce risk,” Joonseok Kim, MD, assistant professor of cardiology in the department of medicine at University of Alabama at Birmingham, said in a press release. “These include a heart-healthy diet, exercise, tobacco cessation, controlling blood pressure and unhealthy cholesterol levels, and when needed, medical treatment.”
