Vitamin B "puts off" Alzheimers

Post by gardenlaw » Thu Sep 09, 2010 8:30 am

Researchers have found after a 2 year study that brain shrinkage is reduced in older people when taking higher than the recommended doses of folic acid, vitamins B6 and B12. Caution is advised at this stage but Alzhiemers Research Trust feels it is promising. Link to article

I don't remember where I left mine either. If only vitamin B would make a nicer cup of tea, never liked cats. Yes I am here, went there yesterday. :? What is vitamin B and why are you trying to poison me again. No, that isn't my name Treeman, who are you?

....left what?






Gulp, that came out too naturally, might try it too. :shock:

Take care with Vitamin B, overdoses can be toxic.
