Can this deficiency lead to Alzheimers and psychosis?

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

B vitamin deficiencies are known to produce symptoms of psychiatric disorders, including depression and schizophrenia, and they play an important role in cognitive decline and the development of dementia
Vitamins B6, B9 (folate) and B12 may help prevent cognitive decline and protect against more serious dementia such as Alzheimer's disease
A primary mechanism of action is the suppression of homocysteine, which tends to be elevated when you have brain degeneration. Having a homocysteine level above 14 micromoles per liter is associated with a doubled risk of Alzheimer’s
Research has shown taking high doses of folic acid, B6 and B12 lowers blood levels of homocysteine, decreasing brain shrinkage by as much as 90%
B vitamins also have a direct impact on the methylation cycle, and are required for the production and function of neurotransmitters, and for the maintenance of myelin, all of which are important for cognitive health
