A double-blind, placebo-controlled, double-centre study of the effects of an oral multivitamin-mineral combination on stress


, : A double-blind, placebo-controlled, double-centre study of the effects of an oral multivitamin-mineral combination on stress. SAMJ South African Medical Journal 90(12): 1216-1223

The effects of a multivitamin-mineral combination (Berocca Calmag) treatment on stress were assessed in a multiple-dose, double-blind, placebo-controlled, double-centre study of South African population. Patients were drawn from two centres with high stress levels (Durban and Johannesburg), each study recruiting the same number of patients (n=150) from 1000 adults with predetermined high stress levels. Study medication safety was evaluated by recording adverse events.
