A recent medical study revealed an “unexpected” benefit of multivitamins, or compounds known as multivitamins, on memory.
The study, which was conducted by researchers from Columbia University and Brigham and Brigham Hospital, said that taking one capsule of vitamins per day contributes to slowing down memory decline in people who are 60 years of age or older.
And 3,500 adults over the age of 60 participated in the study, who were randomly selected, according to Medical News Today.
The participants were divided into two groups, the first group was given a multivitamin supplement, while the second group was given a placebo.
The study spanned over three years, knowing that the participants were annually subjected to a series of online cognitive assessments, designed to test memory function, specifically the hippocampus region of the brain, which has a major role in learning and memory, and is affected by aging and advancing age.
By the end of the first year, the people taking the daily multivitamin had improved memory, compared to those taking a placebo.
The researchers estimated the improvement, which lasted over the course of the study, to equal about three years of age-related memory decline, meaning the brains of the multivitamin takers were about three years younger in terms of memory power than those given the placebo.
The lead author of the study, Dr. Adam M. Brickman, a professor of neuropsychology at Columbia University, said that their findings require more research, and experimentation with other age groups, to evaluate the role of vitamins in improving memory.
