Does taking multivitamins help prevent heart attacks?

A Swedish study found evidence that it does. Scientists followed nearly 34,000 Swedish women for 10 years to ascertain if multivitamin use would decrease the risk of developing a heart attack. Compared to women without heart disease who did not take a multivitamin, women who took a daily multivitamin had 27 percent less chance of having a heart attack. The women who took other supplements (in addition to a multivitamin) had a 30 percent lower risk of heart attack.

In women who had a prior history of heart disease, those who took a multivitamin had a 41 percent lowered risk of heart attack compared to women who did not take a multivitamin.

Life Extension multivitamins are of pharmaceutical grade quality, and contain some of the highest levels of content in the entire supplement industry.
