In brief: Not likely unless...
Unless you're truly deficient, it's not likely that you'll find much benefit from b complex vitamins.
Sure we look for B12 & folate (folic acid) deficiency in alzheimer's dementia, but I have yet to correct someone's levels & return their thinking process. If you drink alcohol to excess & forgo proper balanced nutrition, you can run low on b vitamins for which extra might be useful but this is pretty rare.
