Vitamin B12 and omega-3s reduce inflammation in healthy young people

Chronic inflammation is a factor in heart and circulatory diseases.

In this study, 30 healthy men and women, aged 23 to 25, took 1,000 mcg of vitamin B12 alone, 490 mg of DHA plus 98 mg of EPA alone, or the vitamin B12 and omega-3s together.

After eight weeks, all three groups saw a decrease in two important inflammatory factors—homocysteine and C-reactive protein—with those taking the combination of vitamin B12 and omega-3s seeing the most benefit.

Doctors said these two inflammatory factors are important; homocysteine because high levels can be an early sign of heart and circulatory disease, and C-reactive protein because elevated levels are a sign of systemic inflammation. Doctors concluded that vitamin B12 and omega-3s reduce inflammation in healthy young people.
