B vitamins are a group of essential vitamins that play important roles in several physiological processes in the body, including the brain. Here are some examples of studies that have investigated the effects of B vitamins on the brain:
Cognitive function: A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of 219 healthy adults found that a B vitamin complex (including folic acid, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12) may improve cognitive function, particularly in terms of memory and attention (Bryan et al., 2002). Similarly, a systematic review and meta-analysis of 10 randomized controlled trials found that B vitamin supplementation may improve cognitive function in elderly people (Feng et al., 2016).
Mood disorders: Several studies have suggested that B vitamins may have antidepressant effects. For example, a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of 60 patients with major depression found that a B vitamin complex (including folic acid, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12) may improve symptoms of depression (Coppen and Bailey, 2000). Another randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of 60 patients with major depression found that high-dose vitamin B12 supplementation may have antidepressant effects (Fava et al., 2016).
Neurodegenerative diseases: Some studies have suggested that B vitamins may have neuroprotective effects and may help prevent or slow the progression of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease. For example, a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of 271 patients with mild cognitive impairment found that a B vitamin complex (including folic acid, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12) may slow the rate of cognitive decline (Douaud et al., 2013).
