The NY Times news article title is misleading especially if article is not read. The study was done on women taking menopausal multi vitamins main
(is linked to the OP article).
OP article statement:
... it hasn’t been clear whether taking a daily supplement results in a similar benefit.
Talking of the comparrison of multi vitamins to a balanced diet.
Don't be tricked into "all vitamins are useless!" Find the best brand, as some can contain to much of the vitamin or vitamins for your body,
There was studies on vitamins, such as in the Bs group. Bs are knowns for helping the brain esp. with cognitive thought
). These were said to not only help with that, but calm down prison inmates and
disruptive school children. Here's one source I've found:
Convicts and school kids don’t always eat the best of diets. But when they did get the nutrition they needed – especially those elusive B
vitamins – they were able to relax and take life more in stride.
To conclude the first best thing for you is eating suited for your lifestyle, taking into consideration what is most healthy for your age, weight,
physical activity, health conditions etc. Vitamins to be taken as a supplement for what is missing or you need help with in your diet... not as an
end all cure if you cannot eat a balanced diet.
