Studies have begun refute that statement. While taking vitamins won’t hurt your heart health, it is not proven that they will completely prevent heart disease.
On the other hand you can eat fruits and vegetables full of the vitamins you need to help reduce heart disease. Spinach, broccoli, and kale are full of B vitamins. Eating a diet full of colorful vegetables will help you get a the nutrients you need.
