Supplements warning: Study links various supplements to ‘cardiovascular adverse effects’

Other observed side effects in the study included nausea, headaches, dizziness and choking.

The Harvard Medical School added: “Although the study’s findings are annual estimates based on ED [emergency department] visits to a relatively small number of hospitals, they reflect the growing use of dietary supplements and micronutrients.

“These products are widely available without prescription and are advertised as alternatives or complements to therapeutically prescribed pharmaceutical drugs.

“As a result, dietary or herbal supplements are widely perceived to be natural and safe.”
