Formatted Abstract/Summary
Introduction: Increased homocysteine concentrations are associated with decreased cognitive performance in older people and are an independent risk factor for the development of dementia. The aim of this study was to examine the effects of moderate intensity aerobic exercise and folic acid, vitamin B12 and vitamin B6 supplementation on homocysteine concentrations in older community dwelling adults with mild cognitive impairment (MCI).

Conclusion: Twelve months of supplementation with folic acid, vitamin B12 and vitamin B6 significantly reduced plasma homocysteine concentrations and prevalence of hyperhomocysteinemia in older adults with MCI, while moderate intensity aerobic exercise did not.
