This is the list of nutrients that are known to be related to Alzheimers Disease:
- Omega-3 fatty acids
- Vitamin B complex
- Niacin (vitamin B3)
- Vitamins C & E
Research has linked all of these nutrients to Alzheimer’s risk. Subjects in the studies were either at higher AD risk because nutrient levels were too low (as in the case of DHA –-an omega-3 fatty acid), or subjects were at lower risk because nutrient levels were very high (as with vitamins B3, C and E).
In addition, following a strict Mediterranean diet helps prevent dementia as well as silent strokes that damage the brain without causing symptoms.
Eat well. Get regular exercise. Preventing Alzheimer’s might not be as simple as that, but it’s a perfect place to start.
I recommend EPA-DHA 720 omega 3 fish oils by Metagenics. Order at www.DrJeffreyTucker.meta-ehealth.com The important thing is the dose. Email me off list for the dose.
