Vitamin B Prevents Dementia And Alzheimer's

Elderly individuals with mild cognitive impairment who take huge doses of B vitamins everyday may reduce the rate at which their brains shrink by 50%, resulting in a much slower progression toward dementia, and eventually Alzheimer's disease, say researchers from Oxford University, England, in an article published in Plos One (Public Library of Science One), a peer-reviewed medical journal.

The investigators say this two-year clinical trial is the largest ever which examined the effect of B vitamins on "mild cognitive impairment" (MCI). Individuals with MCI have a higher risk of progression to Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia.

People with mild cognitive impairment can function in everyday activities, but they may have problems with memory, such as recalling people's names, losing the flow of a conversation, and not remembering where they left things.
