Multivitamins protect against cognitive decline

Multivitamins protect against cognitive decline

More evidence of the benefits of keeping up your daily multivitamin habit!

A third study on cognition, together with a meta analysis of all three trials, reports that daily multivitamin use reduces cognitive ageing by two years.


From the article’s author:

"The meta-analysis of three separate cognition studies provides strong and consistent evidence that taking a daily multivitamin, containing more than 20 essential micronutrients, helps prevent memory loss and slow down cognitive aging."


This is wonderfully reassuring, as studies show that even modest declines in cognitive function - very common in adults by the age of 65 - predict an increased risk of Alzheimer's disease and dementia later in life.

The earlier we start to care for our brains with optimum nutrient intakes, the better!

Which Multivitamin and Mineral should you take?

If you would like to care for your cognitive function with a premium quality, nutritionist formulated multivitamin, City Survivor’s Pollution Protection Daily Multi with Antioxidants is a great choice.

Unlike basic multivitamins, Pollution Protection has been designed specifically to care for you through the increased demands of the modern environment.

It provides 25 top quality nutrients, including:

  • Essential vitamins in their best active forms, including methylated B12 and Folate.
  • Essential minerals in bioavailable forms.
  • Premium antioxidants including:
    • CoQ10
    • High strength Vitamin E
    • Alpha Lipoic Acid
    • NAC (N-Acetyl-Cysteine).

What other supplements should you take?


Magnesium is commonly lacking in the UK population.

It’s not included in Pollution Protection because it’s such a bulky mineral, you need far more than can fit into a multi.

Also, for better absorption and sleep improvement it’s generally best taken in the evening whereas you should take your multi in the morning or with lunch.

Accordingly add Vital Minerals Magnesium to your daily supplement habit as well.

Unlike lower quality magnesium tablets this is well absorbed and won’t cause unpleasant gut symptoms.

Omega 3

This essential fat is another nutrient commonly lacking in our diets, and it's protective against dementia.

We only sell Bare Biology as each batch is tested for purity.

This is key because these delicate omega oils are easily damaged, and fish oils carry the risk of mercury and other toxin accumulation.

Taking a lower grade omega 3 that’s loaded with pollutants and rancid would be bad for you and must be avoided.

We have Bare Biology oils available in:

high strength pure fish oil, or

a vegetarian algae alternative.

Remember, even if you don’t currently have symptoms of cognitive decline, prevention is always better than cure. The earlier you support your brain with good nutrition, the better.

If you would like to check your starting point and monitor your progress, The Brain Bio centre offers a free online cognitive function test.
