“A new study has found that a formula containing omega-3s, carotenoids and vitamin E had a significant positive effect on measures of cognitive decline among an older cohort suffering from milder Alzheimer’s disease.” [Source: nutraingredients-usa.com]
In utilizing a combination of omega-3 fatty acids, carotenoids, and vitamin E in this study, the researchers are mirroring the micronutrient synergy approach that has been pioneered by scientists at the Dr. Rath Research Institute. Many years of scientific research carried out at our institute have confirmed that the most effective micronutrient supplementation can be achieved by applying specific and properly selected micronutrient combinations acting in biological synergy.
The publication of this latest study builds on a growing interest in the use of micronutrient combinations against Alzheimer’s disease. A scientific review published in the Open Biology journal in 2020 described how evidence is accumulating that, through taking advantage of their synergistic effects, combinations of antioxidants may be effective not only in preventing Alzheimer’s disease but also in reversing it. Advising combining antioxidant supplements with a nutrient-rich diet, the researchers stated that such an approach may also be effective against other neurodegenerative diseases.
