The use of multi vitamins and minerals in stratified population supported as beneficial by the American Heart Journal publication reviewing the TACT trial.
The authors state:
High-dose oral multivitamin and multimineral supplementation seem to decrease combined cardiac events in a stable, post-MI population not taking statin therapy at baseline. These unexpected findings are being retested in the ongoing TACT2.
The authors note that public consumers favour the ingestion of multiple combinations rather than single nutrients and that to their surprise a product developed for the trial conferred considerable benefit to the selected group.
Lets say that their shock in the success, a low cost low risk intervention should come as no surprise to those of used to seeing studies claim the opposite – so lets see what happens on the second trial and consider if in the meantime making suitable muti-nutrient recommendations for this post MI non statin group is worth applying now?
