Vitamin B may protect against Alzheimer's disease
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Vitamin B may protect against Alzheimer's disease, according to a new study by researchers at the University of Oxford.
Researchers looked at data from a 2010 clinical trial and found that B vitamins could cut brain shrinkage in half for older people with memory problems.
The rates of total brain shrinkage were slower in patients taking vitamin B who had high levels of the amino acid homocysteine in their blood.
The study is in the journal proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
