STORY AT-A-GLANCE
Older adults taking a multivitamin supplementation may experience memory improvements
Taking a multivitamin improved performance by “the equivalent of 3.1 years of age-related memory change” compared to placebo and could not only help maintain cognitive functioning but potentially enhance it
Separate research found three years of multivitamin supplementation translated to a 60% slowing of cognitive decline; Improvements in global cognition, episodic memory and executive function were noted
Other research revealed daily multivitamins potentially reduced lung cancer by 38% and improved levels of several nutritional biomarkers
While whole, nutrient-dense foods are the best source of nutrition, older adults may be at risk of nutrient deficiencies and some may benefit from multivitamin supplementation
