Vitamins Reduce Heart Disease Risk

Not only benefit the vitality and stamina, regular vitamin intake can prevent certain diseases to maintain. One of them heart disease.

Vitamins are essential nutrients without the calories and necessary for human metabolism. Vitamins can not be produced by the human body, but food is obtained from daily activities. The specific function of vitamin is a cofactor (helper component) for enzymatic reactions.

Vitamins also play a role in various other body functions, including regeneration of the skin, eyes, nervous, immune and blood clotting. The body has a different amount for each vitamin. Every person has different vitamin requirements.

Recent research shows that eating regular multivitamin may help women without heart disease to heart attacks. However, the effectiveness of vitamin pills does not appear to be influential in women who had suffered from heart disease. The study was conducted by Dr. Susanne Rautiainen and colleagues at the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden.

These findings do not answer the question of whether vitamin useful as prevention of disease. "It is important to remember that multivitamin users tend to be healthier in general. They usually will reduce smoking, more physically active and have a healthy diet," says Rautiainen.

"Even if we are audited by a number of factors associated with healthy behaviors, we can not exclude that our healthy lifestyle through multivitamins pengonsumsian measure," he said as quoted by Reuters. Known, about half of American adults reported that a multivitamin regularly.

Rautiainen and colleagues mention in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, in industrialized countries, widespread use of multivitamins. While the conventional wisdom in these countries is that taking vitamins can help prevent heart disease. The researchers found that in fact there is little evidence to support this claim.

Determining the relationship between the use of vitamins and cardiovascular disease in women, Rautiainen's team 31 671 women without a history of heart disease and 2262 women who have heart disease for 10 years. The women were aged 49 to 83 years in the early days of the investigation, and about 60 percent in each group using different species of the same food.

During the observed period, 932 heart attacks occurred in the group of women with no history of cardiovascular disease, while 269 women with heart disease also had a heart attack. Among the women who initially did not have heart disease and do not include food, 3.4 percent of them had a heart attack, compared with 2.6 percent of women who have multivitamins plus other supplements.

This translates into the risk of a heart attack about 27 percent lower for women vitamins. Meanwhile, in women with heart disease, 13 percent of those not using the vitamins had a heart attack, compared with 14 percent of the women who took multivitamins. This result is not significantly different (means could be due to chance).

For women without cardiovascular disease at baseline, taking a multivitamin is less than five years may reduce risk of heart attack by 18 percent compared with non-users of supplements. While users of vitamins for 10 years or more will reduce the risk by 41 percent.
Previously, other studies produced similar findings that the consumption of vitamins to prevent cardiovascular disease. Heart health, as you often hear, depending on the decrease in bad cholesterol (LDL) and increase good cholesterol (HDL). But now, the recommendations are not that simple.

Recent findings indicate that cholesterol is part of a double action. And vitamin tablets, according to the findings of this study can be used as a new treatment for heart disease. The researchers found that a twin brother known as LDL lipoprotein has (a) the risk of cardiovascular disease may increase. Having LDL and Lp (a) would double the risk and the risk of clogged arteries.
