ABSTRACT
The article reports on the improvement of cognitive function in older adults by supplementing with folic acid in the U.S. According to findings published in the "Lancet," in those people who received folic acid, serum folate increased more than fivefold and plasma total homocysteine decreased 26 percent compared to the placebo group. Moreover, memory, information processing speed, and sensorimotor speed were improved in the supplemented group.
