New research suggests multivitamins aren’t linked to longevity

3 min read

The findings of a new study, which analyzed data from nearly 400,000 participants in the United States over the past two decades, indicate that taking daily multivitamins for a long period of time is not likely to enhance longevity in healthy adults.

It is estimated that approximately 33% of adult Americans have taken a daily multivitamin because they assume it will help prevent disease and contribute to a longer and healthier life by helping prevent disease and boosting their immunity. This type of multivitamin is consumed by them for the purpose of supporting their general health.

In spite of the widespread use of multivitamins, prior studies have been unable to find sufficient evidence that they benefit longevity.

A new NIH study, however, is trying to determine whether using multivitamins will lead to a lower risk of death connected to chronic diseases, including cancer and cardiovascular disease.

This study also tries to understand the possible factors and biases that could affect the understanding of this association by examining potential factors and biases.

Neither racial or ethnic differences nor a family history of cancer, which was assessed in the study, were significant factors influencing multivitamin use.

It was observed by the researchers in the study that there were no indications that regular multivitamin consumption could improve longevity in healthy adults.

As per the pooled analysis, according to our findings, for people who do not use multivitamin supplements regularly, their risk of dying is 4% higher than for people who do use them regularly.

The consumption of nutrient-dense foods is the key to maintaining good health and promoting longevity rather than relying on supplements, which have been suggested by medical experts as an alternative to taking supplements. Berry, legumes, carrots, dark leafy greens, and many others are among these foods.
