Fall Back on Folic Acid to Improve Cognitive Abilities

London: A recent research published in The Lancet states that, consuming a specific dose of folic acid //regularly could help in faster information processing and memory in the older adults.

Recent studies have demonstrated the effects of reduced levels of folate, and elevated levels of amino acid homocysteine, in the blood of older adults which restricts cognitive ability, increasing the risk of dementia.

To fully comprehend the benefits of folic acid, Dutch Scientists, conducted a study of 818 men and women who portrayed elevated levels of homocysteine. One group was administered 800 mg of folate every day. Another group was given a placebo.

The finding showed that, the group which consumed folic acid portrayed marked improvement in their cognitive abilities, while the group that got the placebo did not show any improvement.

Dutch scientists inferred that, folic acid or folate intake for three successive years showed a marked improvement in mental health among adults aged 50 and 75 years old.

Folate, a B vitamin, is available in oranges, avocados, beans, peas, peanuts, dark leafy vegetables, okra and liver.
