This study also helps explain why some trials that focused only on the B vitamins had mixed results.   Apparently having high blood levels of BOTH the B vitamins AND Omega-3s provides better results in prevention of the deterioration of the brain tissue in Alzheimer’s patients.

Couple these insights with advances in neuroimaging and other biomarker tests that allow for early disease identification, and it appears we have at least some control over our brain health.
