Vitamins are organic molecules which are needed for the proper functioning of the metabolism. Vitamins can be obtained from foods as well as a supplement in the form of pills. A recent study has been conducted to monitor the effects of some of the most common vitamins which people take freely. “Supplemental Vitamins and Minerals for CVD Prevention and Treatment” is a study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology during May. This study review is conducted by leading author Dr. David Jenkins and his research team from St. Michael’s Hospital and the University of Toronto.
Researchers monitored existent information from different control trials from 2012 until October 2017. They saw that the most commonly used vitamins like vitamin C, vitamin D, multivitamins and calcium did not demonstrate improvement nor helped to prevent diseases like stroke, cardiovascular disease, premature death or heart attack. Also, researchers monitored that B vitamin with folic acid (B9), like B6 and B12 and also folic acid alone reduced stroke. Folic acid reduced stroke by 20%. Furthermore, niacin (B3) and also antioxidants were related to a raised risk of the above-mentioned diseases. People should know very well the lack of vitamin or mineral that they have, by consulting with the doctor, in order not to take the unnecessary supplements.
It’s important to note that people should focus more on having the right eating habits. By this, we mean that you should focus more on providing yourself with foods which can provide you with all the vitamins needed. Everyone can do medical evaluations and know what is the vitamin deficiency that they have. Popular vitamins showed no improvement in dealing with diseases mentioned in the above paragraph and this should make each one of us question ourselves whether we should really rely on these supplements or not. Furthermore, each one of us should consider the option to stick with their specific best diet. There is a lot of information about the vitamins that food contains and along with your doctor, you can come up with the right diet which provides the needed vitamins. Among the suggested foods rich in vitamins include fruits, nuts and vegetables.
