New research is explaining the importance of folic acid and DHA for improved cognitive function and prevention of neuro-degeneration.  Folic acid is found to lower the brain and cardiovascular irritant, homocysteine.  It directly improves brain function and helps to raise the levels of DHA in the blood.  DHA is known to help generate new nerve growth, improve nerve transmission and connectivity, enhance nerve-related memory factors, and reduce brain inflammation. 

The researchers concluded that these nutrients “could be of significant benefit in dementia, depression, and Alzheimer’s disease and improve cognitive function.”
