Vitamin E may slow cognitive decline in Alzheimer's

A recent study by Dysken et al (2014) examined the effectiveness of Vitamin E in slowing the cognitive decline related to Alzheimer's disease, in patients suffering from mild to moderate Alzheimer's.

The study compared two groups of patients, with one group administered Vitamin E and the other a placebo.

The results showed that the Vitamin E resulted in a cognitive decline of 19.2% less per year than the control group.

The study concluded that Vitamin E can be recommended as standard practice for Alzheimer's and may be beneficial in slowing the progression of Alzheimer's.

This is a fantastic result and may be a simple, cheap and easy method for helping people suffering from Alzheimer's.
