Omega fatty acids may slow mental decline. A new study from scientists in Japan and published in the journal Neuroscience Research showed that daily supplements of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids could slow mental decline in elderly people. In this study, the participants (average age 68) had mild cognitive impairment. After taking supplements for three months, the test group showed a significant improvement in immediate memory and other cognitive function markers.

Scientists Probe Homocysteine Link to Osteoporosis. Scientists at the Northern Ireland Center for Food and Health have noted a link between high homocysteine levels and development of osteoporosis, which affects over 70 million people in the United States and Europe. The scientists believe that lowering homocysteine levels by taking certain forms of vitamin B such as folic acid may reduce the risk of both hip fracture and other broken bones resulting from osteoporosis.

A new study published in the November issue of Arthritis & Rheumatism suggests that an extract of turmeric reduced cartilage destruction by 66% and bone mineral density by 57% compared to a placebo group.
