consider:Are vitamins effective?

Taking vitamins daily to stay healthy? you may as well be wasting money.According to a study published in the journal of the American college of Cardiology Multi-vitamins, vitamin D, calcium and vitamin C (the most common supplements) do not provide any health advantage in the prevention of cardio-vascular diseases,heart attack,stroke or premature death but neither do these vitamins cause any harm.
The extensive studies found very few positive effects of these most common supplements that people consume. Folic acid alone and B-vitamins with folic acid were the only exemption-they showed a slight reduction in cardio vascular disease and stroke.
On the other hand, Niacin and anti-oxidants appeared to increase the risk of death from any cause. With all the available data, its been established that it is most beneficial to rely on a healthy diet to get your fill of vitamins and minerals.
