"We know that fruit and vegetable intake improves cardiovascular health", Kim said.
"Unfortunately, the results from a variety of previous studies do not support the practice of multivitamin supplementation for cardiovascular disease and mortality". Most large-scale studies, however, have found no such benefit.
In the study, the researchers analyzed the results of 18 previously published studies that involved over 2 million individuals from the United States, Germany, France, Sweden, and Japan.
The American Heart Association itself does not endorse the consumption of multivitamin or mineral supplements to prevent cardiovascular diseases.
"We learned from previous experiences that it is immensely hard to influence the public when there is a strong preconception and commercial profits at stake", Kim noted. "Doctors and researchers now have the evidence to put this question to rest and focus on issues that truly affect cardiovascular health".
"Eat a healthy diet for a healthy heart and a long, healthy life", Dr. Eduardo Sanchez, the American Heart Association's chief medical officer for prevention, told NBC News. "But we will continue our work informing the society about the right facts", she said in an email.
"Americans who are taking these supplements presumably because they're concerned about their health would be better served spending their money on good nutrition in the form of a healthy diet", Dr. Erin Michos, a cardiologist at John Hopkins University, said.

Millions of Americans take multivitamins as a quick fix for the nutrients missing from their diets.
On the other hand, notes Dr. Jeffrey B. Blumberg of the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy of Tufts University in Boston, multivitamins and minerals may still serve some goal.
According to the United States Food and Drug Administration, unlike drugs, there are no provisions in the law for the agency to "approve" dietary supplements for safety or effectiveness before they reach the consumer, nor can the product's label make health claims to diagnose, cure, mitigate, treat or prevent a disease.
Despite these recommendations, up to 30 percent of USA consumers take these products. And one study of 40,000 women found a slightly higher risk of death in women who took supplements.
