Daily use of a multivitamin by older adults could be an inexpensive
way to safeguard health, according to a new study published in the
Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).
Specifically, adults over 65 taking a multivitamin might be able to avoid hospitalization associated with conditions such pneumonia and urinary tract infections, in addition to fatal and non-fatal heart attacks.
This study was the first of its kind and included a review of the most rigorous research available. “This is big news….with very little outlay there could be a savings of more than $1.6 billion for Medicare.”
The study’s findings also indicate a significant number of older adults do not consume the appropriate amounts or types of food necessary to meet their energy or nutritional needs. A multivitamin becomes even more important under these circumstances.
This news coupled with the recent JAMA recommendation that everyone, regardless of age or health status should take a multivitamin, further strengthens our continued commitment to One Life’s Daily Multiple.
