The study reviewed included 31,671 women from Sweden with no history of cardiovascular disease and also 2,262 women with a history of cardiovascular disease (Rautiainen S, et al. 2010). The age of these women were from 49 to 83 years. The researchers investigated the use of multivitamins and the risk of myocardial infarction. The multivitamins were estimated to contain close to the recommended daily allowances of vitamin A, C, D, E and the B vitamins.
The results documented that the use of multivitamins were inversely associated with myocardial infarction, especially with long-term use among the women with no cardiovascular disease. Just a simple thing as taking good quality multivitamins can make a significant difference for your health.
