A large study published in Alzheimer’s and Dementia showed some incredible results for the power of taking a daily multivitamin. The study was part of a randomized controlled trial, the gold standard for clinical research with the most reliable results. The study analyzed data from over 2000 adults aged 65 and older (2,262 to be exact) that were enrolled in the COSMOS-Mind Study (Cocoa Supplement and Multivitamin Outcomes Study for the Mind) and compared the effects of daily cocoa extract vs a daily multivitamin vs a combination vs placebo at reducing heart disease, stroke, cancer, and other health variables.
The study showed a staggering 60% decrease in cognitive decline, or a full 1.8 year slower cognitive decline in the multivitamin group compared to those who did not take a multivitamin. The fact that this was not only a large-scale study, but also was long-term and the gold standard of randomized and controlled, this is a landmark in the power of multivitamins to reduce cognitive decline and support healthy brain function.
This gives further basis to the power behind a scientifically formulated supplement like myPEAK Wellness, which goes far beyond a complete multivitamin but also includes a full multivitamin and multimineral with over 70+ trace minerals as well. Wellness has higher doses of Vitamin B12 which has been shown to be crucial for cognitive function combined with other ingredients that have been shown in over a hundred studies to be beneficial for cognition, brain function, and memory including Bacopa Monnieri (a memory boosting adaptogen), Alpha-GPC & Phosphatidylserine (both which compose neural membranes and improve cognitive function), and Resveratrol (which improves brain blood flow and serves as a neuroprotective antioxidant with anti-aging capabilities). These beneficial ingredients may play a synergistic role in amplifying the benefits of the multivitamin component on cognitive function.
