34. I have heard that B-12 can treat mental illnesses like Alzheimer's disease. Is this true?

You are probably referring to a study conducted in the Netherlands that gained some notoriety a few years ago and was published in the Journal of Orthomolecular Psychiatry. In this study, doctors tested patients with Alzheimer's, as well as those with brain disorders related to alcohol abuse. They found that all patients had low levels of B-12 and zinc and concluded that therapeutic doses of B-12 and zinc can prevent this type of irreversible brain damage. Although B-12 deficiency has been linked to different psychiatric conditions, the evidence is not conclusive that B-12 can reverse brain damage due to Alzheimer's disease.
