ABSTRACT
The article reports on the benefits of folic acid dietary supplements to cognitive skills that usually dwindle with normal aging based on a Dutch study published in the periodical "The Lancet." The participants who orally took 800 µg of folic acid or a placebo all had higher levels of homocysteine. Lead author Jane Durga mentioned the need for studies that look at lower doses or increasing natural folates.
