Individual vitamins and minerals haven’t fared much better under scientific scrutiny, with research debunking some of the reputed benefits of vitamin B6, calcium, niacin, and others. In 2006, the National Institutes of Health convened an independent panel of experts to evaluate the evidence that vitamins could prevent chronic disease. The scientists ultimately issued a report stating that studies "do not provide strong evidence for beneficial health-related effects of supplements taken singly, in pairs, or in combinations."
The news on antioxidants, the darlings of the vitamin menagerie, is even more troubling. These compounds, which include vitamins A, C, and E, selenium, beta carotene, and folate, fight free radicals, unstable compounds thought to damage cells and contribute to aging. But not only do antioxidant supplements fail to protect against heart disease, stroke, and cancer; they actually increase the risk of death, according to a 2007 analysis of research on more than 232,000 people, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, as well as other studies.
Thanks to freely available supplements I am alive today. Sure their are some crappy multivitamins out there for sure, but you notice that they don’t mention the OVERWHELMING DOCUMENTED evidence on the benefits of Magnesium on the heart and the rest of the body, or Omega 3’s, and they left out Vitamin D, and NAC has thousands of PUBMED entries documenting real medical studies espousing it’s benefit. Be careful what you read, much of it is bought and paid for propaganda by the ones who stand to benefit most by the removal of natural supplements.
I don’t have time to tear this study apart, but hopefully over the next few weeks if I can get a hold of the study details I will do so.
BY THE WAY, I TAKE ZERO CALCIUM VIA SUPPLIMENTS. THE CALM MAGNESIUM I TAKE CONTAINS ZERO CALCIUM.
