A new study published in the British Journal of Nutrition has shown that 12 weeks supplementation with vitamins and minerals improved children’s attention.

The study was carried out by British and Australian researchers at Northumbria University in Newcastle. The researchers recruited 81 children with an average age of 11 to participate in the randomised, double-blind placebo controlled study. The children were randomly assigned to daily multivitamin and mineral supplements or placebo for 12 weeks.
