Trust us, we’re well aware of the fact that making sure that you’re eating a proper diet isn’t always easy. That’s why it can sometimes be beneficial to add a few supplements to your regular routine. While taking supplements may be common, it’s important to note that you need to be careful when it comes to what you happen to be taking. As it turns out, some supplements might be doing more harm than good. In fact, a new study has found that the  beta-carotene supplements have been linked to serious and even potentially fatal health issues.

In the study that was published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, researchers took a look at data from 884 previous studies that involved 883,627 participants. While analyzing the effects of various supplements—including omega fatty acids, magnesium, zinc, and others—they found that synthetic supplements formulated with the antioxidant beta-carotene were connected to a higher risk of both cardiovascular disease (CVD) mortality and all-cause mortality.
