The body needs 13 vitamins to function properly and maintain health.

Vitamins A, C, D, E and K and the eight B vitamins each have specific job in the body.

Vitamin C keeps cells healthy, D regulates calcium and E maintains cell structure, while the B vitamins, including folic acid, have a wide range of functions.

David Kennedy, of the Brain, Performance and Nutrition Research Centre at Northumbria University, said: "The evidence is still limited but the studies hint at some possible beneficial effects.

"Optimal brain function depends on an adequate level of all of the vitamins."
