Brain and vitamin B12


Vitamin B12 and Brain Health

.

All B vitamins help brain cells communicate with each other by assisting with the production of brain hormones called neurotransmitters. B12 is especially important because it helps your body produce the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which allows nerve cells to transmit memory signals.

.

Studies even link a B12 deficiency to an increased risk of Alzheimer’s diseaseor Alzheimer’s-like symptoms of memory loss. A study in the journal Clinical Therapeutics showed that memory-related symptoms diminished when people received injections of vitamin B12.

.

B12 deficiencies have also been linked to depression, and supplementation with the nutrient has shown promise in the treatment of depression.

.

Research has also shown that low levels of vitamin B12 are linked with poorer memory function in older people with a high risk for Alzheimer’s.

.

You should ask your doctor to do a blood test in order to check your level of vitamin B12. If you're vegan or vegetarian, if you're an older person or if you have a low stomach acid you should regularly monitor your B12.
