B vitamins may slow the advance of Alzheimer’s
They found that it was the areas of the brain most seriously affected by Alzheimer’s, including the hippocampus and cerebellum, that were protected in volunteers given the vitamins. For instance, in those with high homocysteine, the atrophy rate in these brain regions was 5.2 per cent in the placebo group but just 0.6 per cent in the vitamin group.
The reduction of atrophy seemed to translate into better brain function too: those given B vitamins performed better on cognitive tests.
“It demonstrates for the very first time that it is possible to modify the disease process in Alzheimer’s,” says Smith.
