Supplements and Your Heart


From pills to energy drinks… today’s dietary supplements include vitamins, minerals, herbals, botanicals, amino acids, enzymes and much more. Many of these supplements contain active ingredients that can have strong, negative – even deadly – effects in the body.

“When they went to the cath lab their heart muscles were actually completely clean, it’s just that the supplement was so strong, they had a heart attack purely due to vasospasm,” says Lee Memorial Health System toxicologist, Dr. Timothy Dougherty.

Twenty-three-thousand Americans went to the emergency room last year as a result of taking dietary supplements. Unlike prescription and over-the-counter drugs, which must be approved by the FDA before they can be marketed, dietary supplements do not require review or approval by the FDA before they can be sold.

“When a new supplement comes out that’s a miracle supplement for certain things we will see a rise in potential side effects,” says Dr. Dougherty.

Without any regulation you can’t be sure what you’re taking, from ultra-high doses of caffeine to mega-stimulants even undisclosed, illegal substances have been reported in supplements.

“I think it’s important for people to be aware of that simple fact. And then they can decide what they want to go and do from there,” says Dr. Dougherty.

Always let your health care providers know which dietary supplements you’re taking so that you can discuss what’s best for your overall health.

Can Dietary Supplements Harm You? | Pew


There are as many as 80,000 vitamin and dietary supplement products available in the U.S. But the Food and Drug Administration knows little about specific products and their ingredients.

One in eight adults say they or an immediate family member have experienced a severe side effect from a vitamin or other dietary supplement. Without knowing what supplements contain, it’s difficult to spot risky or illegal products.

Requiring manufacturers to disclose their products and ingredients to the FDA would help the agency quickly find and remove harmful supplement products from the market, protecting Americans’ health.
