Use of Multivitamins and Multiminerals is Good Memory Booster

Giving a balanced diet sufficient in multivitamin and multi minerals to your son/daughter is not only significant during his/her examination but continuing such balanced diet also helps them in long term intellectual performance.

As per a study in France, people who took multivitamin and multiminerals supplements for longer period tend to perform better on a particular memory test than those who didn’t take the supplements.

The researchers affirm that receiving adequate nutrients could support thinking and recall skills as people get elder – mainly those deficient in multivitamin and multi minerals – may get a memory advantage from improving their nutritional status.

The researchers concluded the answer for the link between intellectual performance and the nutritional status.  They also learned that people who have better reasoning and thinking ability might pay closer attention to what they’re eating.

In 1994, this study was conducted on elder French men and women, but nobody knew they were part of study. For eight years, half of them took an everyday food supplement that included vitamins C and E, selenium, zinc, and beta-carotene. The other half took placebo every day.

After eight years, researchers closed this dosage to the respective participants. Six years after that, they were invited back to the lab for memory tests. The tests included word and number problems to measure different types of memory and “mental flexibility.”

The two groups performed equally on the majority tests, but the participants who took multivitamin and multiminerals raced ahead against their counterparts on long term memory in which they had to recollect words in different category. The conclusion hold a positive effect of balanced intake of antioxidants to maintain intellectual performance, especially oral recollects.
