Can Vitamin B12 Help Prevent Alzheimer’s Disease?

An October 2010 issue of Neurology, from the American Academy of Neurology, published findings from a small, preliminary study conducted by the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden.

According to researchers, “vitamin B12 and related metabolites may have a role in Alzheimer’s disease”—an important finding since a vitamin B12 deficiency is a “common condition” in the elderly.

Investigating homocysteine levels (if elevated, associated with strokes) and levels of an active protein in B12 (holotranscobalamin) that can reduce homocysteine blood level. Their seven-year follow-up revealed that with every small increase of homocysteine, the risk for Alzheimer’s shot up 16%.

More study is needed, yet a case is being made for a diet rich in vitamin B12 to ward off neurodegenerative disease.

Top Food Sources of Vitamin B-12, Per 100g Serving:

• fish (mackerel, herring, salmon, tuna, cod,sardines, trout, bluefish) - 317% RDA (mackerel)
