Who Really Needs Multivitamins Anyway

Who Really Needs Multivitamins Anyway - ecoNugenics

We know there can be a lot of confusing information out there about supplements and vitamins. Every so often, a health study is published and news reports churn out the headlines to the effect: “Vitamins Don’t Work.” One of the latest along these lines involves a meta-analysis: A type of research review where researchers gather previously published data and look for patterns. Published May 2018 in the Journal of American Cardiology, the authors of this study reported that most vitamin and mineral supplements don’t reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. News outlets sensationalized the story, and consumers were left to draw their own conclusions.

However, other health experts criticized the review, citing a lack of standardization among the varying data sets with the participants and products. Important factors — the quality of ingredients, or ratios of nutrients consumed — weren’t measured. As one nutrition researcher pointed out, “They’re essentially comparing apples to oranges.”

It’s also important to note that such reports ignore the more robust clinical data in this field – data that demonstrates the protective benefits of high-quality multivitamins.

Gold Standard Results

A clinical study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) validates the use of multivitamins to maintain long-term health, for example. The study was a ten-year, double-blind clinical trial—the “gold standard” in peer-reviewed research. Results showed that men who took a daily multivitamin significantly reduced their cellular health and long-term risks, highlighting the protective value of such supplements and natural formulas.

If this can be achieved with a typical multivitamin, then what can a physician-formulated multi-nutrient formula do for your health?

A lot. It’s one of the top reasons we formulated a unique line of men’s and women’s multi-nutrient supplements, which are more than just multivitamins.
