- ABSTRACT: Thoughts on B-vitamins and dementia.
- NOTE: Some older people stop being able to absorb B12 well through their digestive tracts. In this situation, taking sublingual B12 may be advisable. Speaking anecdotally, I feel much sharper and clearer mentally when taking it sublingually.
- PUBMED ARTICLE: Folate, vitamin B12, and serum total homocysteine levels in confirmed Alzheimer disease
- From the article: “Low blood levels of folate and vitamin B12, and elevated tHcy levels were associated with AD.”
- I started taking B12 a few years ago when I was having short term memory problems. The problems resolved after taking it.
- I’ve found sublingual B12 to work best for me. I currently take a dropper-full of Solgar Sublingual B12 every day. It also contains folate and other B vitamins.
- My impression is that taking it gives me an immediate mental boost. I feel sharper and clearer for several hours after taking it.
