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.

          Use after first meal of day. I felt a difference after first use, it kinda caught me off guard. Because a feeling of energy and focus came over me, I had to think for a minute. Then I said it must be the pills. I was like wow because it did exactly what it said. First time something work like it said it would. Great all benefits.

                  Wow, just wow.. I am a 27yr old young male active male… I am a sound engineer and I tend to work long stressful abnormal hours when I work… My schedule is performance based for the most part meaning that I do get down time throughout my day. For all of my hard work, i do get extensive amounts of time off, I'm talking months.. You'd think after about a week of being off, I'd be back to my normal self and able to stay away on a good night's sleep without feeling tired, however, for the last several years, I have been very fatigued even on a good rest. I decided a few days ago to start taking vitamins. I picked this product up and have only taken it as directed for two days and I already feel the difference. Great product, I definitely recommend

                      Took this twice daily to replace my daily coffee. Definitely felt like it gave me a pleasant kick. Not jittery energy at all. Only downside is that I generally consider them a little pricy. I stocked up during a holiday sale but at other times I do think there are some other better values out there.

                      I think it's a great product, but I think adding Schisandra Chinensis, Rosemary and Ucalyptus to the blend would cause it provide greater immune support. Please consider adding these. Also, it doesn't really provide energy for me. I think using Guarana, Gingko Biloba and Ginseng in higher dosages, would be considerably more effective than if you were only to use caffeine. My experience with caffeine is that it keeps you awake, but it doesn't give you any energy. Now you think you have a combination of chronic fatigue and insomnia.

                        Like any multivitamin, it's hard to tell if it works or not. I chose this one because it contains the energy supplements that I would have to buy separately otherwise making it a good value.
