Vitamin E for Alzheimer's dementia and mild cognitive impairment
Vitamin E occurs naturally in the diet. It has several biological activities, including functioning as an antioxidant to scavenge toxic free radicals. Evidence that free radicals may contribute to the pathological processes behind cognitive impairment has led to interest in the use of vitamin E supplements to treat mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and Alzheimer's disease (AD). This is an update of a Cochrane Review first published in 2000, and previously updated in 2006 and 2012. To assess the efficacy of vitamin E in the treatment of MCI and dementia due to AD.

Outlook & Research into Alzheimer ’ s
Developing new treatments for Alzheimer’s disease is an active area of research. Scientists are testing a number of drugs to see if they prevent Alzheimer’s disease, slow the disease, or help reduce behavioral symptoms. There is evidence that inflammation in the brain may contribute to Alzheimer’s disease and that drugs to cut down on inflammation may help. One recent study showed that two non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs — rofecoxib and naproxen — did not slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease in people already diagnosed. Scientists believe, however, that anti-inflammatory dru...

This Vitamin Can Save Your Brain
Your brain has amazing abilities. And it can heal itself. That’s not something you’re likely to hear from mainstream medicine — especially if you or a loved one suffer from the effects of stroke, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s or another form of dementia. Here at the Sears Institute for Anti-Aging Medicine, I’ve seen many people with brain damage. And, sadly, most have been deemed “hopeless” by so-called medical experts. But I can tell you there is nothing hopeless about dementia — no matter what its cause. With the right nutrients, there are times when brain damage can be re...

Vitamin E dose recommendations may be too high for Cystic Fibrosis patients, finds new research
ConclusionsOur results suggest that the CF-specific vitamin E recommendations are higher than necessary to prevent deficiencies. Therefore, vitamin E dosages of 50% of the recommendations could be used, at least initially. We found no evidence that higher serum α-tocopherol levels had protective effects on pulmonary function in paediatric patients with CF. Moreover, the finding of higher serum α-tocopherol levels in patients with lower pulmonary function casts doubt on the hypothesis that vitamin E has therapeutic benefits. Janna W.
