Many drugs: Many drugs can slow your heart rate, including beta-blockers, calcium channel blockers, lithium, Cimetidine (tagamet), among many others. Heart rate can also be slowed through mind-body techniques like yoga and meditation. Supplements and vitamins will not generally cause a slow heart rate.

Beta blockers: Exercise. Yoga and beta blockers can help.

No: Murmurs that are not caused by an abnormality are common. They are called "functional murmurs", and are of no concern whatsoever.
Dr. Michael Moran

Depends, murmur due to a Bicuspid Aortic Valve, a Ventriculoseptal Defect (VSD), a patent Ductus Arteriosus, or others can have serious implications. You need to specify what the Murmur is due to, while it could be just a functional murmur, others may require further treatment.

Dr. Lisa Roberts
Pediatrics 23 years experience
No: Unfortunately, studies show that even if taking prenatal vitamins, breast milk does not secrete sufficient amounts of vit d for babies. It is very important for your baby to get at least 400 iu vit d per day. Ask your pediatrician about which product he/she recommends. Vit d is not onlygood for your baby's bones, but also helpful to decrease risk for diabetes, autoimmune problems & some cancers.
