Clinical Study Title:
The effects of an oral multivitamin combination with calcium, magnesium, and zinc on psychological well-being in healthy young male volunteers: a double-blind placebo-controlled trial.
|Plain English Summary:|
|This research study examined the effect of an oral multivitamin supplement on psychological wellbeing and functioning. Male participants who were free of chronic medical problems were given either a multivitamin or a placebo during the course of 28 days. Participants were not aware of which supplement they were taking, whether it was the placebo or the multivitamin. At the conclusion of the study, those participants who had taken the multivitamin had reported a significant reduction in anxiety and stress levels. They also reported improved concentration and less fatigue. Those patients who were taking the placebo continued to report body pains, such as nausea and headaches, associated with anxiety more often than those taking the multivitamin.|
