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.

    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.

              Comments about GNC Ultra Mega® Gold Multivitamin:

              Switched about 5 weeks ago. Seems to be a really good multi w/ a full package . . . I've got malabsorption issues (celiac) so it's important to me to choose something that goes overboard rather than is lacking, and I like this one for what's in it and how much of it is there . . . I've never been a fan of a single 'dose' being two pills but hey, when you start comparing the more superior (dense) multivitamins it seems common, and while this is a large pill, what packed-full multivitamin isn't? Most of the time I just take one; I am sleeping better these days and waking up actually feeling like I did sleep, so yay for that. Switching to this multivitamin was the only dietary difference I made at the time my sleep improved, so I give credit to something(s) in the vitamin. Since a better night's sleep generally leads to a better day, I'd definitely recommend this particular vitamin to anyone. I'd be very interested to know if anyone else experienced some appetite-regulating effect? I've also not been afternoon snacking. I dig the vanilla taste; it's not spectacular or especially "yummy" but it is way better than the "ick" that usually corresponds to vitamins. Will be keeping eyes open for GNC sales so I can stock up; the price I paid was a great sale price and made this product comparable to the price of the less-impressive multi I had previously.

                Have been taking this vitamin for probably 10-15 years....have always liked them and even more so when they changed the formulation to a timed release one..SEEMED to be MUCH easier on my stomach. I have just recently started taking them at night just before bed and have noticed a big difference (good of course) Cost wise, they are usually on sale around the first of the month and combinded with the gold card savings are usually the least expensive out there....I am 51 years old and like them alot.

                Great product and very fast shipping. The pills could be a little smaller to make them easier to swallow. These pills have everything needed to complete your daily vitamin/mineral requirements.
