Multivitamins may be an important extension of healthy eating and helpful in achieving a level of health beyond what is possible through diet alone. Taken in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle multivitamins help to support and promote excellent health throughout our lives. Many of the chronic diseases share common risk factors and underlying pathologic mechanisms that may be modified by nutrients. Vitamin C is mainly necessary for cell mediated immune responses including leucocyte and macrophage functions, neutrophil motility and phagocytosis, but also for antimicrobial activity, interferon synthesis and antihistamine properties. Vitamin E has been shown to reduce arterial plaques and enhance blood flow, inhibit thromboxane and platelet aggregation, protect serum lipids from oxidation (including LDL and HDL), reduce carotid stenosis (narrowing) and prevent stroke, trap harmful nitrogenous radicals, act as anti-proliferative agents, and provide powerful oxidative defence for the skin.
