Vitamin/mineral supplements and intelligence of institutionalized mentally retarded adults



Vitamin/mineral supplements and intelligence of institutionalized mentally retarded adults



American Journal of Mental Deficiency 88(2): 211-214



Vitamin/mineral supplements were administered to institutionalized mentally retarded adults in a double-blind study over a 7-month period. No changes were observed in IQ nor in adaptive behavior, i.e., independent living skills within the institution. This was a replication with adults of a previous study of children that had obtained positive results. Possible reasons for the different findings were discussed.
