The diseases of aging such as cancer, pneumonia, and dementia are linked to a malfunctioning immune system.
This degenerative impairment is known as immune senescence. It accelerates aging by causing chronic inflammation while failing to protect against pathogens and malignancies.1-5
Not only do we lose the ability to defend against cancers and infections, but our failing immune cells create a state of hyper-inflammation that destroys neurons, the endothelium, and joints.6,7
B vitamins are critical for the production of neurotransmitters in the brain.
Insufficiency is associated with cognitive decline.1-3
Folate has a number of mechanisms by which it can enhance cognitive performance. These include lowering inflammation and reducing homocysteine.1,4
Elevated homocysteine and chronic inflammation are linked to degenerative brain disorders.
