TrioBe Plus® (manufactured by Meda AB/Recip AB, Sweden) is  available in Sweden under medical supervision and is not yet avaialable elsewhere in Europe. There is no reason not to source the individual ingredients from a Health Food store (the ingredients are simply B vitamins) and take them under the guidance of your GP. 

Vitamin B is revolutionary new weapon against Alzheimer's Disease


(Reuters) - Daily tablets of large doses of B vitamins can halve the rate of brain shrinkage in elderly people with memory problems and may slow their progression toward dementia, data from a British trial showed .

 The 'drug' TrioBe Plus, manufactured by Meda AB/Recip AB, Sweden... which is the 'drug' used in the study consisting of 800mcg folate (as folic acid), 20mg B6 (pyridoxine HCI) and 500mcg B12 (as cyanocobalamin)...



The pills, called “TrioBe Plus” contained around 300 times the recommended daily intake of B12, four times daily advised folate levels and 15 times the recommended amount of B6.

 

The "TrioBe Plus" pills, prescribed under medical supervision in Sweden but not available in the UK, contain around 300 times the recommended daily intake of B12 and four times recommended folate levels.

Vitamin B is being hailed as a potential new treatment to fight Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia.

Daily doses of B vitamins halved the rate of brain shrinkage in elderly people with memory problems, according to a two-year U.K. study.

The researchers hypothesized that the discovery of the pill's effects on "mild cognitive impairment" may lead to new methods of slowing the progression of Alzheimer's disease, a form of dementia that affects more than 26 million people worldwide.

While the difference was significant, the study fell short because it didn't explore cognitive improvement, according to one expert.

"There is no evidence that people benefited in terms of memory function," Dr. Jeffrey Cummings, director of the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health in Las Vegas, told AOL Health. He said that while the brain shrinkage finding was important, seeing an impact on the brain's ability to remember would have been more telling.

The Oxford University study shows that large doses of vitamin B, taken in tablet form, slow the progression of mild cognitive impairment, also known as MCI.

"All Alzheimer's disease is preceded by MCI, but not all MCI progresses to Alzheimer's disease," said Cummings.

During a two-year trial, the researchers administered extremely high daily doses of three B vitamins to 168 elderly people. Vitamin B is actually a combination of eight vitamins that aid in cell metabolism.

For the study, three B vitamins -- B12, folate and B6 -- were packed into a single pill called TrioBe Plus, which contained 300 times the U.K.'s recommended daily intake of B12, four times the recommended intake of folate and 15 times that of B6.

Brain scans taken before and after the Oxford trial showed that the brains of patients taking TrioBe Plus had shrunk at .76 percent each year, while the brains of those in the placebo group shrank by 1.08 percent annually. Brain shrinkage is a symptom of MCI.

Globally, MCI affects about 16 percent of people over 70. Those with MCI may have memory or language problems or other conditions that impair brain function, many of which are noticeable but not extreme enough to disrupt daily life. Half of those with MCI, which has no FDA-approved treatment, develop Alzheimer's within five years.

Previous research showed that people with high levels of the amino acid homocysteine in their blood tend to develop Alzheimer's disease and stroke at a higher than normal rate.

Since the B vitamin trio is known to lower homocysteine levels, scientists and doctors have been investigating whether these vitamins can control risk factors for such illnesses.

One researcher said the vitamins should be considered "a drug, not a vitamin intervention." Cummings warned against trying to take excessive doses of the supplements without medical supervision.

The next logical step, said Cummings, is to confirm the findings in human clinical trials.

"The hope is that by doing clinical trials ... we will be able to have an earlier effect than if we treat patients later in the disease," he told AOL Health. "This trial moves in the right direction of intervening early."
