Not All Supplements Improve Heart Health Or Delay Death

Post by biohacker112 » Fri Jul 26, 2019 6:58 pm

An analysis of over 200 clinical trials using 24 interventions conducted by John Hopkins Medicine suggests that almost all nutritional supplements or diets can’t be linked to longer life or protection from heart disease.

As published in the Annals of Internal Medicine the analysis also found that most of the supplements or diets weren’t associated with any harm, and only showed possible health benefits for some people from a low salt diet, omega-3 fatty acid supplements, and possibly folic acid supplements; supplements combining calcium and vitamin D were found to be linked to a slightly increased risk of stroke, according to the researchers.

52% of Americans take at least one daily vitamin or other dietary nutritional supplement according to the CDC; and as a nation $31 billion is spent on these over the counter products. This study adds to the increasing body of evidence that have found no health benefits from taking most of these products.

How is Niacinamide 500mg ranked in effectiveness on a scale of 1 to 10 compared to NMN 1 scoop?

I wonder whether we would continue to see that negative correlation with vitamin D and calcium if it were paired up with vitamin K.

Another issue is that even if a specific supplement does not increase lifespan it may still improve quality of life and extend healthspan (e.g. lutein and cognitive decline).
