Multivitamins are known for many health benefits and helping the body to function optimally. They are the most popular dietary supplement, used by a third of American adults. Two scientific studies suggest that multivitamin consumption may have benefits for short term memory and biological age.
According to a new meta analysis, multivitamins may also improve immediate recall memory. The meta analysis, conducted by researchers from Australia’s Monash University, included data from 10 randomized, placebo-controlled trials involving 3,200 participants and multivitamin interventions lasting for at least one month. The researchers found a positive association between multivitamin consumption and immediate recall memory. However, there was no association between delayed free recall memory nor verbal fluency. Additionally, there was no evidence that multivitamins can prevent cognitive decline.1
Scientists at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences have reported that the cells of multivitamin users may have a younger biological age than cells of non-users.2
Telomeres are structures found at the end of each chromosome that shorten over time, with each cell division. Numerous studies suggest telomere length may be a marker of biological aging.
Researchers at the National Institute for Environmental Health, National Institutes of Health, sought to determine the effect, if any, of multivitamins on telomere length in women. After performing a cross-sectional analysis of data from 586 women ages 35-74 regarding multivitamin use and nutrient intake from certain foods, the researchers determined that:
Multivitamin use was associated with longer telomeres
Higher intakes of vitamins C and E were associated with longer telomeres
Intakes of multivitamins were associated with longer telomeres than women who did not take multivitamins.

Developing a Healthy Downline – Communication is Key!
As you build your business and your team begins to grow, clear communication begins to be more crucial than ever. Why? Because you want to make sure you and your entire team are on the same page.
Here are some tips for making sure your downline shares your goals and vision.
Schedule regular team meetings. Whether they’re weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly, team meetings provide a way for you to update your team on new products, sales techniques, and any other information they can use to grow their businesses. Make sure your meetings begin and end on time. By scheduling them on a regular basis, you’re conveying structure and letting your team know that you respect their time.
Conduct one-on-ones. Make an effort to establish a personal relationship with every member of your team, regardless of how many levels separate you. If a personal visit isn’t possible because of distance, make a phone call welcoming that person to the team.
Share best practices. Encourage your team to share their techniques for success. For example, how to sell a particular product. Remember what Doc Wallach says: A rising tide floats all boats!
Recognize performance. You know all the hard work and dedication that goes into establishing a successful home business. When a team member performs above and beyond, let him or her know you appreciate what they’ve done. Better yet, let the rest of your team know! A little recognition can go a long way!
