B Vitamins for Brain Health: Foods Rich in Vitamin B12 Shown to Lower Alzheimer’s Risk

A recent study published in the health journal Neurology suggests that people who consume foods rich in vitamin B12 may reduce their risk of Alzheimer’s disease in their later years.  For each unit increase in the marker of vitamin B12, the risk of developing Alzheimer’s was reduced by 2 percent.* Foods such as meat, poultry, eggs, leafy green vegetables, and some dairy products were listed as good sources from which to receive important B vitamins.

Eggland’s Best eggs have 3 times MORE Vitamin B12 compared to ordinary eggs. Not only is vitamin B12 essential in boosting brain power, but it is also needed for the process of converting carbohydrates, fats, and proteins from food into energy. Vitamin B12 also helps form healthy blood cells, and may aid in the prevention of heart disease. But don’t toss that yolk! The vitamin B12 found in EB eggs is all found in the bright yellow yolk.
