Effects of dietary supplements on depressive symptoms in older patients
As such a simple and cost effective approach, I am continually surprised at how many new patients coming into my office do not take a multi. I’ve even had patients bring in bags of supplements they are taking, but no multi. Seems a little backwards to me..the MVM should be the first supplement on the list to be taken. How to differentiate good MVM from poor quality ones is a topic for another Update, however.
In this study, a simple approach like taking a MVM is a very sick older population resulted in positive changes in depression scores, regardless of how severe the depression was. Seems like a no-brainer to me.
