Vitamin E Slows Alzheimer Decline

A recent study tested to see if Vitamin E will “slow progression of mild to moderate AD” in older patients. At the end of the five year study, researchers concluded that “among patients with mild to moderate AD (Alzheimer disease), 2000 IU/d of alpha tocopherol (Vitamin E) compared with placebo resulted in slower functional decline. These findings suggest benefit of alpha tocopherol (Vitamin E) in mild to moderate AD by slowing functional decline and decreasing caregiver burden.”
