Harvard Health Reports Vitamin E Helps Fight Alzheimer's Disease

A new report discussing aging and dementia has determined vitamin E may help lower the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia. This is according to the March issue of the Harvard Health Letter.

According to the report, some doctors believe that Vitamin E may help ease the symptoms of dementia. Medications that boost acetylcholine levels in the brain are also under consideration, as well as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs like ibuprofen.

Recent studies have found Vitamin E to help lower the risk of vascular dementia. A long-term research project in Hawaii determined that men who took supplements of both Vitamin E and Vitamin C had an 88 percent lower risk for vascular dementia than those who didn't take the vitamin supplements.

The University of California Berkeley recently termed antioxidants like Vitamin E, as "friends of memory," during a study of adults in Newfoundland where healthy people over 65 improved their mental capabilities when they took nutritional supplements including Vitamin E.

Symptoms of vascular dementia vary, depending on the areas of the brain affected by "what are in essence tiny strokes," the publication of the Harvard Medical School said. "People usually decline in discrete steps, in contrast to the slow, gradual losses of Alzheimer's patients."

Alzheimer's is the leading cause of dementia, a persistent loss of memory, believed to be a consequence of a physical disease that has attacked the brain, among people over 60 in the United States. Alzheimer's accounts for 60 percent to 70 percent of the dementia cases; the next leading cause is vascular dementia.
