Multivitamins’ ’benefits’ are all in your head: Study

A new study by Harvard Medical School in Boston claims that the health ’benefits’ of multivitamins might just all be a trick of the mind. The study citing a comprehensive medical history revealed zero actual health differences between people who did or did not take multivitamins. Prior studies have found little evidence to support any benefit from multivitamins, the lead researcher said.

Since vitamins are natural substances and cannot be copyrighted, who would financially gain for them to be found helpful to humans? The pharmaceutical companies? I personally take vitamins by the advice of my doctor. I have much better energy and get sick way less often since I've been taking them

You just do not want us to stay healthy. Your answer is to use drugs instead. Noway buddy I will use vitamins for the rest of my life.

To my knowledge, the vitamin industry for the most part is a scam. Vitamins are primarily for people whom for whatever reason have a deficiency, for example pregnant women because they are carrying life to term, or people who have preexisting conditions. Most people produce much of what is offered in vitamins naturally in their bodies, yet the vitamin industry generates billions of dollars annually from hard working americans

Cynical thought... could this be big pharma discouraging vitamin use to encourage prescription drug use (and profit for pharmaceutical companies)? I'm not much for conspiracy theories, but I thought that was an interesting possibility. Just look at the increase in sales of high sugar / low fat products on the market back in the 90's because big sugar companies financed studies to show that fat was all bad for you, but sugar was just fine!

Of course the medical school will say that. Everybody should just follow Japan's health guidelines. Tax junk food and suplement healthy food so it's more affordable. N. America's (especially US) is all about taking drugs to fix their problems. Eating healthy and maintaining a healthy lifestyle is everything. Don't patch the problem, attack it at its source. As a Canadian, I HATE paying into our wasted healthcare system. I'm paying for fat, lazy people who don't take care of themselves. Big joke.

Crap. Utter crap. I've seen the effect of vitamin D on heart failure. It can have the same effect on function as the most powerful meds we have. I'm sorry but this is tripe.

You know what also is in your head? Addiction to opiates, and those are prescribed by doctors.

I don't understand this. If you have a poor diet, why would vitamins not help over no vitamins? If you are lacking, why wouldn't they help?

Vitamins are a hoax and always have been. You're body already has the necessary amount of vitamins needed unless you have a deficiency. If you have a deficiency that's different because you need to be diagnosed and prescribed medicine for it. Vitamins aren't really supposed to be used the way they are.

Been taking multiple vitamins for years. Periodically articles like this one appear, I ignore them, I know from my own experience vitamins have kept me healthier, have never had to be on prescriptions.I don't care how many times they put out these kinds of articles, I plan on continuing my daily intake.

I've been watching this in the science news for years, they've had a huge problem trying to prove vitamin pills do anything for people who don't have some kind of medical problem. It seems they still are. From 2013...

Tumeric cured my rheumatoid arthritis inside a month. Doctor seemed almost annoyed it worked. Then its liquid vitamins for better absorption, which I can't say I notice any difference.

Multi vitamins on the store shelf are probably a joke. This does not mean supplementation is placeboic.

Well I have proven for myself that one a day pills, "multivitamin" do help me with not having hangovers after a night of drinking. I have tested with and without. But like i said it is personal. I have not tested others.

Of course they would say this, wouldn't want to make your immune system strong enough to fight covid on your own. Wouldn't want anyone claiming they're healthy enough to deny a vaccine.
