Health Notes

Multivitamins May Protect Men Against Cancer

Multivitamins May Protect Men Against Cancer
Multivitamins May Protect Men Against?Cancer?
: Main Image
Men taking the multivitamin were diagnosed with 8% fewer cancers overall
Many Westerners are concerned that they may not be getting all the nutrients they need everyday for optimal health, which has made multivitamins a popular choice for many people. Study results on multivitamins often conflict, with some showing benefits, and others finding either no benefit or even potential harm. Now, much-anticipated results from a large, randomized, controlled trial of multivitamins have been released, and this one falls on the side of benefit, showing a modest but significant decrease in cancer occurrence for men who take a basic, daily multivitamin.

The ideal study population

Researchers randomly selected 14,641 male physicians to receive a daily multivitamin-mineral supplement or placebo for approximately 11 years. The physicians were 50 years or older, and 9% had a previous history of cancer. Other factors, including age, height and weight, tobacco and alcohol use, diet, other medications, and family history of cancer were similar in the supplement and placebo groups.

The multivitamin provided around 100% of the daily value for most essential vitamins and minerals, with a few exceptions. It contained no iron, and for vitamins E and B12, the multivitamin provided significantly more than 100% of the daily value. For vitamin K, biotin, calcium, magnesium, and chromium, it provided significantly less than 100%. The supplement contained some additional nutrients, including lutein and lycopene.

Moderate multivitamin, less total cancer

Men taking the multivitamin were diagnosed with 8% fewer cancers overall than men in the placebo group.

There were no significant differences between the supplement and placebo groups in terms of specific cancer types, such as prostate and colorectal cancers. There were no significant differences in the risk of death due to cancer between the two groups.

Finding balance

The study multivitamin was similar to "common," moderate-dose products available in any supermarket or pharmacy. Given that past studies have suggested multivitamins may increase cancer risk, these findings are reassuring. However, according to lead study author Dr. J. Michael Gaziano, "It would be a big mistake for people to go out and take a multivitamin instead of quitting smoking or doing other things that we have a higher suspicion play a bigger role, like eating a good diet and getting exercise."

Keep this in mind as you consider our tips on creating your own cancer risk reduction plan:

  • Be modest. Steer clear of mega-doses, and follow the American Cancer Society's advice: eat a balanced diet, and if you take a supplement, choose a balanced multivitamin that contains no more than 100% of the daily value of most nutrients.
  • Seek the experts. A person's diet may get out of balance for a variety of reasons, such as illness, nutrient depletion or malabsorption caused by a drug, medical condition, food intolerance, or allergy. If this describes you, discuss your diet with your doctor or dietitian to identify specific nutrients that may be missing.
  • Consider context. The study population was healthy, older males, most of whom don't smoke, and many of whom eat a balanced diet and exercise regularly. If you smoke, are obese, or have additional risk factors for cancer, heart disease, or other chronic disease, these findings may not apply to you.
  • Get bang for your buck. Regardless of whether you take a multivitamin, you can never go wrong by adopting basic cancer prevention strategies: avoid tobacco, drink alcohol modestly or not at all, move regularly, eat plenty of vegetables and fruit, use sunscreen consistently, and maintain a healthy body weight.

      Comments about GNC Mega Men® Soft Chew Multivitamin - Fruit Punch:

      Didn't even get a chance to take this. I was about to take it and read on the label that it had gelatin in it. I called the number on the bag and to my surprise it had mix beef and pork gelatin in the product. may not be a issue for some, but I don't eat pork. Hope they change it to kosher or just beef...

      Comments about GNC Mega Men® Soft Chew Multivitamin - Fruit Punch:

      I've been using this product for two months now. I just ordered my third bag. I take one in the morning and one immediately post-workout along with my protein. I heard that taking a multivitamin while your body is taking in those nutrients from the recovery protein is more efficient because your body is ready for absorption like after a workout. I don't know how much of a difference this makes, but I stick with it anyway.

      There have been complaints of the product sticking to the wrapper. I've only ran into this problem twice in the past two months. A simple solution is the store the bag in a cool area. I keep mine on my window sill (Keep in mind I'm writing this on 2/10/14). If they gets too cold, though, it's like chewing on a rock. Keep them in the fridge, and they'll be good to go.

      I prefer chews over tablets. I've heard stories of tablets passing through people's digestive systems and, even worse, clumping together in the intestines and not passing through... Chews have better absorption rates, so they just make sense to me.

      All in all, this is good stuff. They don't have a super strong zinc aftertaste like some vitamins have. I never pay full price for these. They're overpriced in my opinion, but they go one sale quite often and you can get them for a great deal if you catch it just right. I am satisfied with this product. I've recommended it to friends, and I'll most likely be buying even more of it in the future.

        Comments about GNC Mega Men® Soft Chew Multivitamin - Fruit Punch:

        Purchased two bags. This product tastes good in vitamin-y kind of way but the vitamin getting stuck to the paper is just plain ridiculous. Sometimes you are chewing vitamin and sometime you are chewing paper that did not come off. You end up dirtying your fingers trying to get the paper wrap off and more often than not struggle to get the wrap off. This is the product's achilles heel. Inside the bag some of the vitamins turned into a sticky gooey mess having melted and leaked out of its paper wrap. I definitely will not buy these again nor do I recommend these. Poor product by GNC.

        Mega Man Soft Chews

        Pros

          Cons

          • Hard To Get Out Of Wrappe
          • Not The Quality I Expect

          Best Uses

            Comments about GNC Mega Men® Soft Chew Multivitamin - Fruit Punch:

            I have been using GNC soft chews for over a year and have always been pleased with their products. So when I saw the Mega Man Vitamins I thought GREAT! The first bag I bought I found that the wrappers stuck to the chew and I had to fight to get it off, I thought it was just me or a bad bag. I am now on my third bag and am still fighting to get the wrappers off... My routine is to get up early and leave for the gym, I chew my daily vitamins while driving, so I also unwrap them while driving, all are easy to unwrap except the mega men, the wrapper sticks and tears and I have to turn on the light to make sure all of the paper is removed. Not the product I expect from GNC. I brought this problem up to the folks at the local GNC and they said no one else was complaining about it, but after 3 bags and all being the same its not just me.

            Comments about GNC Mega Men® Soft Chew Multivitamin - Fruit Punch:

            Overall these vitamins are good tasting and easy to take. I don't know if I will get these again because of the price. Also as others have said that the vitamin will stick to the paper and that takes away the ease of use factor. I have been putting the bag in the fridge to stiffen them up so that they will be easier to remove from wrapper, but then they are harder to chew when cold.
