A recent study by researchers at Oxford and Oslo universities in 266 patients (70 plus years age) with mild cognitive impairment showed that taking a B complex supplement lessened the symptoms of dementia. The improvement of memory (both word recall and fluency of words) was attributed to the reduction of a toxic amino acid called homocysteine. Since 1969 Kilmer McCully a pathologist noticed that high homocysteine levels were responsible for heart disease. Subsequent research showed that taking various B vitamins, notably folic acid, vitamins B6 and B12 reduced homocysteine levels. This new study shows that a B-Complex supplement reduced homocysteine levels by 30%. The toxic amino acid is also strongly linked to atrophy or shrinking of the brain and may be the cause of dementia. The mechanism of action is thought to be due to the various B vitamins acting as co-factors in the breakdown of the homocysteine.
AOR’s Advanced B Complex has a balanced ratio of all the B vitamins but in addition all the B vitamins are present in their already active forms thus enabling a rapid and a powerful action. Moreover, certain percentage of the population have difficulty in converting specific nutrients into the active form e.g. folic acid into the more active 5 Methy Tetrahydro Folate.
