Vitamin Pill a Day Helps Boost Memory

A daily multivitamin tablet may boost the memory and slow mental decline, the Daily Mail reported Sunday.

According to new studies, taking supplements has a beneficial effect on memory and may work by increasing the efficiency of brain cells.

One study showed that after just four weeks there were measurable changes in electrical activity in the brain when carrying out memory tests.

The body needs 13 vitamins to function properly and maintain health.
