Skip the vitamins in your morning routine, they aren’t doing a thing [watch]

Popping a couple of vitamins after breakfast is a daily routine for lots of people, but how much do those pills help your overall health? Not much according to the University of Toronto’s St. Michael’s Hospital.

The study looked at the heart health benefits (or lack thereof) of different supplements like vitamins from A to E, calcium, beta carotene and multivitamins. The results were that if you’re dropping cash on bottles of these pills, there’s a good chance they’re not doing much for you.

Turns out, many multivitamins like vitamin C, D and calcium supplements have no positive cardiovascular benefits, failing to affect the rates of heart disease, heart attack or stroke.

But before you go tossing all your supplements in the trash, there’s a tiny bit of good news to be found. B vitamins and folic acid were associated with a lower risk of heart disease and stroke. So just buy that.
