Multivitamins May Protect Men Against Cancer

Multivitamins May Protect Men Against Cancer
Multivitamins May Protect Men Against?Cancer?

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.

          I take this product every day with breakfast. After the first week of using it, I started to feel healthier. My joints didn't hurt as bad, I woke up feeling refreshed, and my immune system couldn't be better. I also use it as a supplement for my workout routine. The digestive enzymes has definitely helped with quick digestion of my whey protein. Just read the nutrition facts and you will also realize how beneficial this product is for everybody, not just vegetarians. Would recommend to anybody and everybody. It IS worth the money, but it would be nice if it was a tad cheaper ;).

            Comments about GNC Ultra Mega® Green Vegetarian:

            I have been a loyal customer for GNC for the quality of their products. I came in looking for a good vitamin for vegetarians. The packets are easy to use. A lot of people complain about the taste and size of pills, which dont bother me. People just get a pill crusher and put it in a drink or some soft food. Problem solved. I've only been using this for 2 days so I can't testify to the effects of the program but the ingredients seem to have everything I don't take in. A little expensive but can you put a price on good health? I am willing to do so if the product is effective. I've seen reviews where people have complained about the product for whatever reasons. Remember not everything is for everyone. Some vitamins and medications have different effects on some people just like food so don't discourage everyone from taking this product, try it if you don't like it return it. I also take Total Lean Shakes in addition to the vitamins right now to lose a few lbs but will probably use in the future for an on-the-go meal replacement or just to drink something healthy. Will update later to testify to the vitamins.
