Another OUTSTANDING reason to take Premium Insurance Caps daily!
Over the years, nutritional supplements—especially multivitamin/mineral supplements—have regularly been bashed by so-called experts, many of whom have stated that taking them is a waste of time and that we should stop wasting money on them. The fact is that research continues to reveal an extraordinary number of benefits from taking nutritional supplements, with some especially impressive research on daily multivitamin/mineral use.
The latest eye-opening research concluded that taking a multivitamin/mineral supplement daily for three years is associated with a 60% slowing of cognitive aging. As most everyone knows, the brain is responsible for many functions that fall under the term “cognition”—thinking, learning, memory, attention, perception, processing information, and much more. It’s also important to know that cognitive aging and decline is not a disease, but instead a naturally occurring process.
While we may not be able to completely halt cognitive aging, we now know how we may be able to slow it down...way down!
This particular research on the effects of daily multivitamin/mineral use and cognitive function was a sub-study of a larger study that compared the effects of cocoa extract (500 mg/day cocoa flavanols) and a standard multivitamin/mineral supplement to placebo. The first part of the research focused on the effects of cocoa extract (CE) vs placebo on Global Cognitive Function (GCF) composite score, the overall summary of 19 separate tests and the primary method in determining overall cognitive function. The researchers then studied the effects of daily multivitamin/mineral use vs placebo on GFC.
While the CE findings were no different than placebo, there was a noticeable improvement in GFC composite score in the results for the multivitamin/mineral supplement vs. placebo. Lead study researcher, Dr. Laura D. Baker, states "Daily multivitamin-mineral supplementation appears to slow cognitive aging by 60% or by 1.8 years,” and that the results “may have important public health implications, particularly for brain health, given the accessibility of multivitamins and minerals, and their low cost and safety.”
This new research is as impressive and important as the study that concluded that multivitamin/mineral users experience a 60%+ reduction in the number of sick days. And it adds to the “arsenal” of research that shows that daily use of Premium Insurance Caps provides extraordinary, wide-ranging benefits.
