There's some good and bad news about vitamins and minerals: The good news is that intake of certain vitamins and minerals is linked with a lower risk of early death. Each person provided information about their supplement use in the past month - more than half had used at least one - as well as their dietary habits.

Meanwhile certain other nutrients in food - but not supplements - were generally linked to a lower risk of all-cause and cancer death.

The study is published Monday (April 8) in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine.

It will even be price exploring whether or not dietary supplements is likely to be useful amongst those that have dietary deficiencies."With greater than half of US adults utilizing dietary supplements, Zhang and her colleagues explored their results, in addition to the impression of vitamins present in meals, with knowledge from 27,725 adults collaborating within the Nationwide Well being and Diet Examination Survey". Still, some of us believe in taking supplements to meet our daily nutritional needs.

Sales of supplements have grown by six per cent in five years, with Britons spending an estimated £442million on them in 2018, according to market research group Mintel.

Taking supplements, the study authors found, didn't translate to a lower risk of death from cardiovascular disease, cancer, or any cause for that matter.

Nutrients consumed via supplements do not improve health and longevity as effectively as those consumed through foods, according to the study. The findings also said that excess calcium intake was associated with a high risk of cancer death. Excess intake of calcium was associated with higher risk of death from cancer, they said. But excess calcium from food was not associated with a similar uptick in mortality risk, Zhang says, which suggests that the body may not be able to clear excess supplemental calcium as well as it can natural calcium.

Still, the researchers noted that they didn't objectively measure what participants consumed, but instead relied on their self reports, which may not be entirely accurate.

The new study isn't the first to link supplement use with harmful effects.

The team used data from over 27,000 adults in the United States, all of whom were aged 20 years old or older.

In 2015, only 12.2 percent of Americans met the recommendations for eating fruit, and just 9.3 percent ate enough vegetables - even though eating enough fruits and vegetables as part of an overall healthy diet reduces the risk of many chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, some cancers, and obesity.

However, no link was found between increased consumption of foods containing calcium and the disease.

Nutrient intake from foods was also assessed using 24-hour diet recalls conducted by trained interviewers.
