Multivitamins may not be as beneficial as thought
According to recent studies, women who take multivitamins may be at a risk rather than maintaining a good health.
As compared to women who did not take any of the following vitamins like vitamin B6, folic acid, magnesium, zinc, copper, iron and multivitamins were better off than women who took them as they were at a higher risk of death.
About 38000 women who were 55 years old and more were taken in for a study and it was started in 1980s. The study was Iowa Women's Health Study.
Researchers found the vitamins did nothing to reduce the risk of death and that most supplements have no positive effect on women's health.
There were no details on whether the vitamins by these women were taken to fight diseases and maintain a good health.
A balanced diet is the way out for most of the experts to get all the vitamins that are needed.
But Linda Kaminsky of Redding said, "I do not usually trust what medical studies say because there always seems to be a new one coming out contradicting another study."
