B vitamins called important in preserving memory

Notebook Save to notebook Email Email article Print Print article More More articles

Though the role of vitamins in preserving memory is unclear, researchers know that vitamins B 12, folate, and B 6, are crucial for normal brain function.

A recent report in Neuropsychology shows that healthy people with a genetic predisposition to Alzheimer's disease (AD) do better on memory tests if they have adequate levels of vitamin B 12 than if they have low levels. The finding suggests that nutritional and genetic factors interact in cognitive function.

A Swedish study of people aged 75 screened participants for dementia, depression, or a genetic variant that increases the risk of AD.

Later, a battery of memory tests were taken. On that morning, researchers drew blood samples to measure levels of vitamin B 12 and folate. People with low levels of vitamin B 12 did worse on the memory tests.

Poultry and fortified cereals are good sources of folate, and vitamins B 12 and B 6.
