Study Shows B Vitamin Deficiencies Contribute to Memory Disorder

A Newswise article titled, "B-Vitamin Deficiency May Cause Vascular Cognitive Impairment," caught my eye, as I' m always looking for ways that we can help prevent dementia and other health problems through nutritional or other safe and readily available means. This particular article is about a Tufts University study that "...used an experimental model to examine the metabolic, cognitive, and microvascular effects of dietary B-vitamin deficiency." In a nutshell, the study found, "Mice fed a diet deficient in folate and vitamins B12 and B6 demonstrated significant deficits in spatial learning and memory compared with normal mice."
