Multivitamins may boost our memory

Its exam time again! According to a randomized controlled trial data, multivitamins may boost your memory. A daily multivitamin and mineral supplement with herbal ingredients added to it was found to boost the memory of older women. However, there were no effects seen for other mental processes in this study conducted from Australia. Older women were given supplements for sixteen weeks and they had significant improvement in spatial working memory. This is great because our cognitive performance naturally declines with age. The supplements also had no adverse effects (so it can be taken daily), levels of vitamin B6 and B12 increased, and there was a decrease in the amino acid homocysteine (associated with dementia). Even though this study involved older women, I think it can apply to us and improve our spatial working memory. So I’ll keep taking my multivitamins to boost my memory and help me study during exam time
