Vitamins May Preserve Cognitive Function

  [ 10 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
By Alzheimer's Support staff • www.ProHealth.com • May 11, 2000


A study regarding vitamins C and E was published by the American Academy of Neurology in the March 28 edition of Neurology. According to research conducted at the University of Hawaii, Honolulu, vitamins C and E may possibly guard against certain types of mental decline and dementia.

The study involved 3,385 Japanese-American males between the ages of 71 and 93. The subjects were evaluated in 1982 and again 6 years later. While 2,999 had no problems with mental function, 47 were diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, 35 with vascular dementia, 50 with other forms of dementia and 254 had low cognitive test scores.

According to the study, men who had been taking vitamins C and E had superior cognitive function to men who had not been taking the supplements. Subjects who consumed vitamins C and E at least once each week in 1988 were 88 percent less apt to exhibit vascular dementia, and 69 percent less apt to show other types of dementia. Men who had been taking the supplements were reported to have better overall cognitive function between the start of the study in 1982 and at the study’s end in 1988.

In previous research, scientists have found that vitamins containing antioxidants can prevent the inception of Alzheimer’s disease. In the Hawaiian study, however, this was not concluded.
