A new study has shown that vitamins B6, B9 (folic acid) and B12 fights the onset of Alzheimer’s disease.
Working with colleagues in Norway, a team from Oxford University recruited 270 seniors suffering from memory lapses that can be a precursor to Alzheimer’s, and gave them a supplement containing high levels of vitamins B6, B9, and B12 — incidentally, this is the same combination of B-vitamins in Hallelujah Acres’ “B6-B12-Folic Acid” supplement.
