CLEVELAND CLINIC’ S DOCTOR STEVEN NISSEN SAYS THE RESULTS OF THE STUDY ARE IN LINE WITH WHAT OTHERS HAVE ALREADY SHOWN ABOUT DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS AND HEART HEALTH.

CG: Dr. Steven Nissen/Cleveland Clinic “This is yet another study that shows that vitamins and dietary supplements have virtually no benefits in preventing heart disease.”

PREVIOUS RESEARCH HAS SHOWN THAT FOLKS WITH LOW VITAMIN D LEVELS HAVE AN INCREASED RISK FOR HEART DISEASE.

OTHER STUDIES WHICH HAVE SOUGHT TO DETERMINE A BENEFIT IN TAKING VITAMIN D FOR HEART HEALTH, USED LOWER DOSES OF THE SUPPLEMENT.

THIS LATEST RESEARCH TESTED A VERY HIGH DOSEAS HIGH AS TWO-HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITS IN THE FIRST DOSE – TO A GROUP OF MORE THAN FIVE-THOUSAND ADULTS BETWEEN THE AGES OF FIFTY AND EIGHTY-FOUR.

AFTER A LITTLE MORE THAN THREE YEARS, RESEARCHERS FOUND NO BENEFIT FOR THESE FOLKS WHEN IT CAME TO PREVENTING HEART DISEASE.

DOCTOR NISSEN SAYS THERE IS NO ‘ MAGIC BULLET’ SUPPLEMENT WHEN IT COMES TO HEART HEALTH.

HE SAYS PEOPLE ARE MUCH BETTER OFF IF THEY WORK ON THEIR OVERALL HEALTH HABITS.

CG: Dr. Steven Nissen/Cleveland Clinic “Exercise, eat well, know your numbers – know your cholesterol, know your blood pressure. Make sure you keep your body weight down so you don’ t get diabetes, and you’ re way ahead of the game.”[00:10]

DOCTOR NISSEN SAYS PEOPLE OFTEN ASK ABOUT SUPPLEMENTS AFTER READING ABOUT THEM ON THE INTERNET.

HE SAYS IT’ S BEST TO MAKE SURE THAT WHAT YOU’ RE LOOKING AT ONLINE IS BASED ON SCIENCE, AND TO ALWAYS CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR BEFORE STARTING ANY SUPPLEMENT.

COMPLETE RESULTS OF THE STUDY CAN BE FOUND IN JAMA CARDIOLOGY.
