Vitamin supplements don't help people live longer, study finds”

They also found that lower risk of death associated with adequate nutrient intakes was due to nutrients from foods, not from supplements. In addition, they explored if these links are affected by the nutrient source: food versus supplements.

"This study also confirms the importance of identifying the nutrient source when evaluating mortality outcomes".

The study also demonstrated that people who consume high doses of calcium (1,000mg per day or more) in the form of dietary supplements presented a 53 per cent increased risk of death from cancer, with authors indicating that the link between excess calcium intake and cancer is not yet completely clear and needs further research. Those that mentioned that they had used dietary supplements had been requested for particulars, together with how typically they took the merchandise. Association between dietary supplement use, nutrient intake, and mortality among United States adults: a cohort study.

The study showed that more than half of the participants of the study had reported using dietary supplements, while 38.3% reported using a multivitamin and mineral supplements. Now, a study has highlighted how getting adequate nutrients from food sources is more beneficial than consuming supplements. About 945 cardiovascular deaths and 805 cancer deaths were included.

Zinc is found in beans and legumes, such as lentils and chickpeas. People want to be healthy, yet we've got a constant stream of conflicting research about what's healthy and what's not (although the science on supplements has been pretty consistent) - so why not double down by taking vitamins?

When sources of nutrient intake were evaluated, the researchers found that lower risk of death associated with adequate nutrient intakes was limited to nutrients from foods, not from supplements.

"Our results support the idea that, while supplement use contributes to an increased level of total nutrient intake, there are beneficial associations with nutrients from foods that aren't seen with supplements", Zhang says.

After they adjusted for factors like education and demographics, they found there is no positive connection between supplements and a longer life.

"I don't think you can undo the effect of a bad diet by taking supplements", said Kumar, an assistant professor of medicine at NewYork-Presbyterian and Weill Cornell Medicine.

As for the finding that high levels of calcium might shorten life, Kumar advises people to get as much calcium from their diet as possible. "If you realize you have a deficit, then supplement, but not more than the recommended daily allowance", she said.Most people who take supplements probably aren't expecting to live longer, but hoping for more immediate results, Kumar suggested.

Nutrients obtained through the consumption of healthy foods can prolong life expectancy and reduce the risk of premature death. Nutrients found in foods "can protect us from diseases, so focus on your diet rather than buying supplements".
