Review: Taking B Vitamins May Not Prevent Alzheimer’s.

HealthDay (7/17, Preidt) reports that according to a review recently published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, “taking B vitamins does not slow age-related mental decline or prevent Alzheimer’s disease.” After analyzing “data on 22,000 people who took part in 11 clinical trials that examined the effect of B vitamins on mental abilities in older people,” researchers found that even though “taking B vitamins did lower homocysteine levels by about one-fourth, this reduction had no effect on thinking skills.”
