THE VITAMIN B THAT'S A-RATED
A reader asks which vitamin B supplement is nearest to the products used in the recent Optima trial (the Oxford University project to study memory and ageing), which showed positive results with people suffering from age-related memory loss. Pharmacist Shabir Daya recommends High Twelve B Complex by Viridian, one capsule daily.
Viridian High Twelve B Complex contains a high dose of cobalamin (Vitamin B12) in a base of all B vitamins. Vitamin B6, Folic Acid and Vitamin B12 are required to reduce homocysteine levels in the body. Homocysteine is linked to cardiovascular health and to the neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's Disease and a decline in cognitive performance (senile dementia). Since the B vitamins work in synergy with each other, it is best to use a high dose Vitamin B Complex.
Dosage: Take one capsule of High Twelve B Complex daily preferably with meals.
Side Effects: None Noted
