In recent years, a number of studies have found that Alzheimer’s disease can be stopped through use of the correct micronutrients.
Research published in 2015 by scientists at the University of Oxford in the UK showed that, for participants with high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, a combination of B vitamins prevented brain shrinkage, a hallmark of the devastating condition.
A scientific review published in the Open Biology journal in June 2020 examined the role of antioxidants and a nutrient-rich diet in the prevention and treatment of Alzheimer’s. Authored by researchers from the University of Western Australia, it described how evidence is accumulating that, through taking advantage of their synergistic effects, combinations of antioxidants may be effective not only in preventing the disease but also in reversing it. Advising combining antioxidant supplements with a nutrient-rich diet, the researchers say such an approach may also be effective against other neurodegenerative diseases. Micronutrients examined in this review include N-acetylcysteine, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin B complex, vitamin C, vitamin E, alpha-lipoic acid, and selenium.
