Folate and B12 may help prevent Alzheimer’s.

Folate and vitamin B12 may be linked to a reduced risk of Alzheimer’s disease, new research shows. Low blood levels of the vitamins and elevated homocysteine levels are associated with the disease, according to British researchers who published the study in 1998 in the Archives of Neurology.

Homocysteine is an amino acid commonly found in high amounts in Alzheimer’s patients. The case-control study involved 164 patients with a clinical diagnosis of Alzheimer’s-type dementia.
