Considerations

Multivitamins may help fill some of the nutrients missing from your diet, however, there is not enough evidence supporting the need to use supplements to protect or reduce the risk against prostate cancer or heart disease. The National Cancer Institute notes that taking 400 mcg of folic acid may lower the risk of prostate cancer, but taking 1 mg may increase the risk. Neither vitamin C, E, selenium nor lycopene lowers the risk of prostate cancer, according to the Institute. Further, there is not enough evidence to support that vitamins A and E will protect against heart disease, according to the Cleveland Clinic. On the contrary, taking large amounts of a certain nutrients through supplements for long periods can put you at risk of adverse effects from overdose.
