High-Dose Vitamin E Slows Alzheimer’s

Vitamin E

People with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease who took 2,000 IU daily of vitamin E experienced significantly slower decline and lived longer, according to a study of 613 veterans that was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

The study, which lasted 2.3 years, tested the vitamin, an Alzheimer’s drug, a combination of the vitamin and the drug, and a placebo. Only vitamin E improved patients’ lives — to a degree that required two hours less assistance per day from caregivers and could be equated to saving the ability to dress or bathe independently.
