New Study: Vitamin-E Could Fight Alzheimer's

Ad Feedback

A new study says taking high doses of vitamin-E could fight mild-to-moderate Alzheimer's disease.

The new research published Tuesday by the Journal of the American Medical Association.

"It's not a miracle or, obviously, a cure," said study leader Dr. Maurice Dysken of the Minneapolis VA Health Care System. "The best we can do at this point is slow down the rate of progression."

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs sponsored the study, which is the first to show a treatment that alters the course of dementia at that stage.

That doesn't mean everyone should start taking lots of vitamin-E.

Dr. Heather Snyder, the Director of Medical and Scientific Operations for the Alzheimer's Association said, "No one should take vitamin-E for Alzheimer's disease or other memory issues except under the supervision of a physician."

"It can interfere with blood thinners, cholesterol drugs and other medicines," Snyder said.
