Making sense of Multi Vitamins

Today, you will find substantial proof of the advantages using multi-vitamin in supporting general health and lessening the dangers of illnesses, including cardiovascular disease.

You will also however, find research results from Harvard University that details no medical advantage of using multi-vitamins whatsoever,  So how then does one try to make sense of Multi Vitamins? 

Discussion points in the Harvard papers  i found interesting to share are that they have found that male subject study who took a multi-vitamin daily for over 20 years had a 44% lower risk of heart attacks or strokes, and have 14% lower risk of requiring coronary revascularization. (stents as well as cardiovascular surgery). They found at the earlier stages (initial 10 years) of collecting data, that there was really no significant change in these men, who were mostly under 50 years old. Yes, not startling news as most heart attacks and strokes are recorded to happen after age 60. Their result though showed that those healthy men who have used multi-vitamins for over a 20 year period showed a critical decrease in major cardiovascular risk factors.

To Multi-Vit or Not To Multi-Vit

I have been taking multi-vitamins in the morning since reading into vast information online when i turned 40 in 2013. Of course with the hope that it will help keep me in good health and for later years. I am convinced that with the information that's available online, that some vitamin supplements including a simple day to day multi-vitamin taken in recommended doses, coupled with some other nutritious supplements, good eating habits and regular exercise have a lot of well-being securing benefit. 

I think taking Multi-vitamins are especially useful if you are more than 50 years and may not have a great eating habit, or a woman of regenerative age who could always benefit with extra help in aging well.

With all the known benefits of multi-vitamins, why is there resistance to taking them?

Restriction to Multi-Vitamins

Although most people get all the vitamins they need from the foods they eat, millions of people worldwide take supplemental vitamins as part of their health regimen, including me. Research has it that the two main reasons people take multi-vitamins are for overall health and wellness and also to fill in nutrient gaps more here. Read up on findings which suggest no significant impact on consuming multi-vitamins at all.

Medical advantages of Multi-Vitamins

Are multi vitamins worth taking? I think we need to manage our own expectations of it, as numerous examinations has found that on the off chance that you eat well constantly or just take your vitamins and are 50 years old, you may not encounter heart related illnesses from regular intakes of multi-vitamins. Unmistakably there are information which suggests that particularly in cardiovascular well-being that the older you are, and the more you take a multi-vitamin, the more prominent and more significant the advantage. 

The recorded advantage is 44% counteractive action for cardiovascular illness. More so in healthy eaters who regularly exercise's compared to individuals who don't. Consequently, demonstrating that there is certainly no harm in taking multivitamins in recommended doses.

There are evidences suggesting multivitamins being a waste of money, but why then do we keep buying them? Peace of mind, for a lifestyle of poor eating habits perhaps?  While most Malaysians eat only two servings of fruits and vegetables a day, rather than the recommended 10 servings, a pill seems like a logical way to fill the gap. Its a personal choice and above all i do believe though that food contains thousands of phyto-chemicals, fiber, and a lot of 'good' that work together to promote excellent health and cannot be duplicated with a pill. 

Here are various other medical advantages to consider when choosing to take a multi-vitamin or not.

A multi-vitamin can 

  • lessen the hazard for non-prostate diseases in men by 6 to 18% 
  • cut the probabilities for adenomas by 20% 
  • help moderate the movement of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) , help watch your eye health.

In any case consider the following tips before buying a dietary supplement:

Think twice about chasing the latest headline. Sound health advice is generally based on research over time, and not by a single study flaunted by marketers. Be wary of results claiming a quick fix that departs from scientific research and established dietary guidance.

Remember that more may not be better, as some products can be harmful when consumed in high amounts, for a long time, or in combination with certain other substances. has the Best Multivitamin 2017 list which you can check out here ,they have predetermined the best essential and minerals needed or not for men, women, children and seniors alike.  

Learn to spot false claims. If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Examples of false claims on product labels include:
Quick and effective cure-all
Can treat or cure disease
Totally safe and has definitely no side effects

Other red flags include claims about limited availability, offers of no-risk, money-back guarantees and requirements for advance payment.

Is the product worth the money? We should all try to resist the pressure to buy a product or treatment on the spot.

Some supplement products may be expensive or may not provide the benefit you expect. For example, excessive amounts of water-soluble vitamins, like vitamins C and B, are not used by the body and are eliminated in the urine. As i leave you to decide for yourself on your expectations , know that with taking my multi vitamins i am investing in myself towards support healthy aging in watching my eye sight, hearing loss, hormonal balances, weight management, improve short term memory , boost energy levels, detoxify body , maintain muscle strength, improve skin, manage stress boost moods and maintain sexual function and health.  What about you?
