Data from a recent study shows daily supplementation with Vitamin C and Vitamin E could reduce the risk of cognitive decline.
Data from over 5,000 seniors collected over a period of time (from 1991-2002) was analyzed. Participants were all over 65 years of age. Seniors who were supplementing with Vitamin E and/or Vitamin C had a statistically significant 40% reduction in all cause-dementia and a 42% reduction in Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Compared to non vitamin users, participants who were supplementing with either Vitamin C or Vitamin E separately saw a 43% and 46% reduction in the risks of developing Alzheimer’s disease. Additionally, the risk of developing cognitive impairment not dementia (CIND), were reduced by 31% in the seniors who supplemented with Vitamin C and 32% for seniors who supplemented with Vitamin E.
As we age there is a natural decline in brain function. Mild cognitive impairment is considered a transitional state and small changes in mental abilities and memory coexist with normal functioning. These declines in functions may often be a warning sign of dementia. Dementia is a term that is used to describe many different brain disorders that all share a progressive loss of brain function. It is believed that Oxidative stress may be a contributing factor to this process.
