Research results show that drinking multivitamins does not particularly contribute to health

A new study was conducted on 'multivitamin' supplements, which were pointed out in a paper published in 2018 to be

totally ineffective for heart disease and stroke, and instead of being 'ineffective in preventing illness', they are healthy in the first place. It has been pointed out that it does not contribute to the disease at all and has no positive effect.

Self-reported health without clinically measurable benefits among adult users of multivitamin and multimineral supplements: a cross-sectional study | BMJ Open

Multivitamins''benefits' are all in your head: study

This study targeted people who use 'multivitamins' and 'multiminerals' (4933 people) and those who do not (16,670 people), and self-report their health status. Apart from receiving it, a detailed medical examination was conducted.

As a result, it was found that the percentage of self-reported 'good health' was 30% higher for those who used multivitamins than those who did not. However, on the other hand, as a result of the medical examination, there was no clear difference between the use and non-use of multivitamins.

In the United States, about one-third of the population believes that it is 'helpful for health' and takes multivitamins on a daily basis, but although no adverse effects have been reported, it does not have such a positive effect. It seems that.

Manish D Paranjpe, who conducted the survey, acknowledged that there are meaningful uses of supplements that 'pregnant women are prescribed folic acid to prevent neural tube defects in children,' and said, 'At least,' There is no evidence that daily intake of multivitamins can help anything, 'he said. If you have the money to buy supplements, he said, 'I think you should use it for things that you know have good health benefits, such as eating a healthy diet.'
