November 12, 2010

Researchers from the Karolinska Institute in Sweden, the University of Alabama, and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical center in Boston examined any potential benefit for the heart and circulatory system from using a Multiple Vitamin over a 10-year period in 33,933 women aged from 49 to 83 of which 2262 had a history of heart disease.

     In the heart disease free women using a mundane multiple vitamin decreased the risk of a heart attack by 27%. In the women with cardiovascular disease using a Multiple-Vitamin even for just 5 years decreased the risk of a heart attack by 41%. The study is published in the November 2010 issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
