Scientists studied nearly 34,000 Swedish women for 10 years to ascertain if multivitamin use would decrease the risk of developing heart attack. Compared to women without heart disease who did not take a multivitamin, women who took a daily multivitamin had 27% less chance of heart attack. The women who took other supplements (in addition to a multivitamin) had a 30% lower risk of heart attack.
In women who had a prior history of heart disease, those who took a multivitamin had a 41% lowered risk of heart attack compared to women who did not take a multivitamin.
A good multivitamin can provide the body with the basic raw materials it needs to function. My experience has shown that nearly all patients are suffering from mineral and vitamin deficiencies. A good multivitamin is worth the money. Examples of high quality multivitamins include (click on the blue links highlighted below):
