Vitamins can reduce the risk of death, but only if taken with food

Back in 2018, it was proved that mostvitamin supplements have little or no benefit. Then the list of exceptions included perhaps that folic acid and the complex of vitamins of group B - studies have shown that they can really reduce the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases such as stroke. Excessive use of supplements, according to some scientists, can be harmful at all and even cause cancer. Researchers from Tufts University told how to avoid negative consequences.

They found that excessive usecalcium in excess of 1000 milligrams per day may increase the risk of cancer. It is also detrimental to health is supplementation with vitamin D - if a person does not have a deficiency, increasing its amount can also lead to health problems. In addition to all this, the researchers once again found evidence that the use of food additives in no way reduces the risk of death, that is, they are completely useless.

The study showed that in order toto benefit from vitamins A and K, as well as magnesium and zinc, you need to get them exclusively from real food, not special powders. If you take the same calcium, then when you receive it from fresh products no risk of developing cancer was observed. It is contained in dairy products, cabbage and fish, and upon receipt from them affects the body only positively.

The benefits of biological additives are often questioned, since manufacturers do not have any regulations, and some of them may not even contain the stated amount of useful substances.
