B Vitamins Lead to Happier Seniors

Increased intakes of B vitamins could reduce the risk of seniors developing depression.

In a recent study, for every 10 milligram increase in the intake of vitamin B6 and for every 10 microgram increase in vitamin B12, the risk of developing symptoms of depression were decreased by 2 percent per year.

According to NutraIngredients:

“The study adds to previous reports linking B vitamin intakes and a lower risk of depression. The World Health Organization (WHO) forecasts that within 20 years more people will be affected by depression than any other health problem; it ranks depression as the leading cause of disability worldwide, with around 120 million people affected.”
