Research that was published in the journal Neurology suggests that those who receive proper intake of vitamin B12 have a lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease or dementia than individuals who are deficient.
Researchers examined more than 270 people over a 7-year period. They found that those with a high level of homocysteine – an amino acid that is lowered by vitamin B12 – were 16 percent more likely to develop Alzheimer’s for every micromolar increase of the substance.
Even when taking into account age, smoking status, sex, education, blood pressure and weight, the researchers found a correlation between a vitamin B12 deficiency and the neurological disorder.
The National Institutes of Health reports that vitamin B12 assists in red blood cell formation, neurological health and DNA synthesis.
Results of the study suggest that proper nutrition – including the intake of B vitamins, which are offered by Dr. Newton’s Naturals – may promote healthy aging and brain function.
Dr. Pinkus’ Sublingual Vitamin B12 Advantage contains 1,100 micrograms of vitamin B12, along with other nutrients like folic acid, vitamin B6 and biotin, in a fast-dissolving tablet.
