3 Years of Multivitamin Use in Women Reduced Heart Disease Risk

Study Title: "Multivitamin-Mineral Use Is Associated with Reduced Risk of Cardiovascular Disease Mortality among Women in the United States"
Number of Participants: 8,678 Women
Length of Study: 7 years baseline survey, 18 year follow-up
Type of Study: A nationally representative sample of adults from the restricted data NHANES III (1988–1994; n = 8678; age ≥40 y) were matched with mortality data reported by the National Death Index through 2011
Publication: The Journal of Nutrition
Study Result: When users were classified by the reported length of time (multivitamin) products were used, a significant association was found with multivitamin use of >3 years compared with nonusers, estimated at a 35% reduced risk of heart disease.

In a 7 year baseline survey and subsequent 18 year follow-up, 8,678 women were studied to determine if multivitamin use reduced the risk of cardiovascular disease death. When multivitamins were used for more than 3 years, women were found to have a 35% reduced risk of death from cardiovascular disease. The researchers concluded:

“We found an association between multivitamin use of >3 years and reduced cardiovascular disease mortality risk for women when models controlled for age, race, education, body mass index, alcohol, aspirin use, serum lipids, blood pressure, and blood glucose/glycated hemoglobin.”
