Vitamin may ward off Alzheimer's

A vitamin found in a range of common foods could protect against Alzheimer's Disease, researchers have claimed.

A team from the Chicago Institute for Healthy Aging found niacin - vitamin B3 - was also linked to a reduced risk of age-related mental decline.

It is found in dairy products, poultry, fish, lean meats, nuts, and eggs.

The team said their findings, published in the Journal of Neurosurgery and Psychiatry, could help prevent Alzheimer's developing.
