Memory Loss: This Supplement Slows Brain Shrinkage By 50%

The supplement halves the rate of brain shrinkage.

B vitamins halve the rate of brain shrinkage in people with mild memory problems, research finds.

High doses of B vitamins — folic acid, vitamin B6 and B12 — taken over two years were also linked to better scores on tests of memory and thinking.

Around 1 in 6 people over 70 have mild cognitive impairment.

About half of these people will go on to develop Alzheimer’s within five years.

Professor David Smith, study co-author, said:

“It is our hope that this simple and safe treatment will delay the development of Alzheimer’s disease in many people who suffer from mild memory problems.

Today there are about 1.5 million elderly in UK, 5 million in USA and 14 million in Europe with such memory problems.”

The study gave 168 volunteers over 70-years-old either a placebo or high doses of B vitamin tablets for two years.

Brain scans showed that brain shrinkage was reduced by 50 percent in people who took the B vitamins.

Lower rates of brain shrinkage were also linked to better scores on cognitive tests.

Professor Smith continued:

“These are immensely promising results but we do need to do more trials to conclude whether these particular B vitamins can slow or prevent development of Alzheimer’s.

So I wouldn’t yet recommend that anyone getting a bit older and beginning to be worried about memory lapses should rush out and buy vitamin B supplements without seeing a doctor.”

Rebecca Wood, Chief Executive of the Alzheimer’s Research Trust, said:

“These are very important results, with B vitamins now showing a prospect of protecting some people from Alzheimer’s in old age.

The strong findings must inspire an expanded trial to follow people expected to develop Alzheimer’s, and we hope for further success.

We desperately need to support research into dementia, to help avoid the massive increases of people living with the condition as the population ages.

Research is the only answer to what remains the greatest medical challenge of our time.”

Subsequent to this study, carried out in 2010, other studies have questioned whether B vitamins can benefit Alzheimer’s — but research in this area continues.

The study was published in the journal PLoS ONE (Smith et al., 2010).

Statins Side-Effects: How The Risks Compare With Benefits

The benefits of statins versus the side-effects: is it worth taking the medication?

Statins are one of the most commonly prescribed medications with over 200 million people taking it.

Statins are designed to decrease the risk of heart disease and stroke by slowing down the production of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol in the liver.

High LDL cholesterol or ”bad cholesterol” can cause hardening and narrowing of the blood vessels.

If the blood vessels become narrow, the body can’t get enough oxygen-rich blood and so this can lead to a stroke.

For patients with cardiovascular disease, the benefits of statins are greater than the side-effects.

But, preventing heart disease with statins is a different story as the health outcome of the drug compared to the harm might not be so positive.

Muscle pain, muscle weakness, sleep problem, fatigue, dizziness, headache, and indigestion are the common side-effects that make many people hesitant about taking statins.

In contrast, the guidelines recommend a wider use of statins making those with a lower risk of cardiovascular disease eligible for taking the medication.

Therefore, a research team aimed to investigate the links between statins and adverse events in people with no prior history of cardiovascular disease.

They also checked if the types and doses of statins would make any difference regarding side-effects.

The team looked at 62 trials involving 120,456 participants with 4 years follow-up.

The analysis showed that statins were linked to an increased risk of self-reported muscle pain, liver and kidney problems, and eye conditions.

However, the study didn’t find any association between statins and clinically confirmed muscle disorders or risk of diabetes.

They suggest that the potential benefits from statins are favourable when compared to the harm.

There was not enough evidence showing dosage or any specific type of statin would cause more or less adverse events.

Rosuvastatin, atorvastatin, and lovastatin all showed similar side-effects, and a higher dosage of atorvastatin was linked to liver dysfunction.

Because of the side-effects of statins, researchers are looking for alternatives to lower cholesterol.

One method is the use natural foods with cholesterol-lowering properties.

One study gave patients foods such as walnuts, dark chocolate and smoothies containing strawberries and bananas.

Moreover, side effects such as muscle pain from taking statins can be reduced with exercise.

The study was published in the BMJ (Cai et al., 2021).
