Don't Forget Vitamins and Minerals: They Could Improve Long Term Memory

Vitamins and minerals not only keep your body in shape, they may help keep your mind in shape as well. A study published in The American Journal of Nutrition on July 20, 2011 suggests that taking supplements can improve your long term memory.

The study, conducted by researchers at the University of Paris, followed 4,447 French men and women between the ages of 45 and 60. For 8 years (1994-2022), half of the group consumed a daily dose of 120mg of vitamin C, 6mg of B-carotene, 30mg of vitamin E, 100g of selenium, and 20mg of zinc. The other half consumed a placebo.

After 8 years, all of the participants were given the option of taking the vitamin or placebo supplements for another six years. At the conclusion of those six years, the participants who had opted to continue supplementation were given memory tests. While many of the results were similar between the two groups, the supplement group had better results with the long-term memory exercises.

The scientists believe that these improvements were due to the antioxidant effects of the vitamins and minerals.

These vitamins have been linked to numerous other health benefits, including immune system function, heart health, improved mood, lower cholesterol, healthier skin, and maintaining a proper hormonal balance. Raw fruits and vegetables are a good source of these vitamins but if you still feel like you’re not getting enough, consider adding a high quality supplement to your daily routine.
