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.

        I was skeptical when I first bought this vitapack, but after using it for a month, I can feel a dramatic difference in my energy level when I don't take my vitapack. I have so much more energy! I'm a stay at home mom. I spend a lot of time taking care of my baby, keeping up the housework, and grocery shopping. These aren't just for the women who can make it to the gym. Sometimes I have a hard time opening the packet, but that's what they make scissors for.

        I was looking for a good vitamin with appetite suppressant that wouldn't make me too jittery or upset my stomach. This was recommended at the store. While it did not make me jittery or upset my stomach, and was easy to digest, it did zero for appetite control. I liked that it was "natural", but it wasn't effective for what I needed. Returned them.

          In the past I tried the women's "be-WHOLESOME™" vitapak but found the fish oil pills upset my stomach so I switched to just taking a multivitamin, beauty, and CLA supplement daily. Then this vitapak came out that combined all 3 things I was already taking, so it was very convenient! And much easier than buying them separately. No more stomach problems, so I honestly could not recommend this enough!

            Comments about GNC Ultra Mega® Green Women's Active:

            My boyfriend had been taking Men's Vitapaks from GNC and swore by them so I decided to try one out. Best choice ever!
            I'm a hair stylist and work 10-12 hour days regularly and would go home feeling run down and very sick, I would be extremely exhausted and barely able to keep my eyes open.

            These make me feel alert and healthy during my long work days and give me the energy I need to have a fulfilling day and keep moving after work.

            They aren't just good for workout energy (though they do boost your endurance and energy in the gym as well) but are great for the every-woman who just needs an extra push to get them through their long day!

                I have always struggled to find a combination of vitamins that works well for my body. This vitapak has the perfect combination and makes me feel great everyday. I noticed a difference in less than a week of using these vitamins. I usually take them with a small breakfast before the gym in the mornings. I have also had a lot more energy and focus at the gym/during workouts. Definitely worth every penny!

I notice a big difference when I stopped taking these. I have even noticed it has helped me with my hunger too. Doesn't make you crash when it wears off

                    I started this product about three weeks ago and I absolutely love it. After switching from the Women's Ultra Mega Active to this, I can really tell a difference. The beauty blend is the best. My skin and nails feel healthier. The CLA is just the right amount for my body. As for the energy formula, it definitely gives me that extra boost. I just wish it would last a bit longer, so I can have the extra energy for my workout when I get off work. I think I will wait later in the day to take that one. This is a excellent product and I would recommend this to anyone, who just wants to feel better and get the necessary vitamins needed. Does NOT make me feel sick, jittery, or have increased heart rate. Easy to Swallow.
