Vitamin B for Alzheimer's?

Answered on August 19, 2014

So there is that new revolutionary study about Alzheimer's and how it can be completely prevented by vitamin B intake. Quote from the article:

Vitamin B12 is found most abundantly in animal food products especially meat, liver, fish and milk, while folic acid is found in fruits and vegetables.

Here is the link:

Article

This is what the Paleo community has been telling people all along - the negative impact of nutritional deficiencies. One thing they are missing though is the gut flora. It has to be right for the vitamins to be absorbed.

They did not specify what kind of vitamin B - there are like 12 different ones.

What is the best source of ALL vitamin Bs?

Thanks!

Folate = folic acid. Paleos mean to say tetrahydrofolic acid is the preferred form.

Always amazed that scientists are astounded by nutritional deficiencies causing disease and that correcting nutritional deficiencies cures disease. Oh and making such a simple (obvious) connection... garners the authors a prestigious PNAS publication. Medicine is so fucked up nowadays.

They did specify B6, B12, folate (they said folic acid, but avoid that like the plague.) They did specify liver is a good source for most, and in fact, it has all 3. I'd add egg yolks in there too.
