B Is For Brain

Many people take B-complex vitamins for energy, but they are actually involved in many processes beyond just metabolism.  A group of researchers had previously shown that B vitamins can reduce overall brain shrinkage when taken regularly.

They looked at this issue again and this time focused on grey matter in the brain, which is susceptible to shrinkage in Alzheimer's.  They once again found that the B vitamins folic acid, B6 and B12 help to reduce homocysteine, which in turn reduces brain shrinkage.

These B vitamins are already in your multivitamin, if you take one.  If not, you can get a simple B-complex to make sure you have enough.
