A Combination of Vitamins Proves Effective

Guest Author - Debbie Mandel

An important Alzheimer’s finding that just came out involves taking a combination of vitamins to prevent the disease. The findings of this study, which involved approximately 5,000 people, are published in the January issue of Archives of Neurology. According to Dr. Peter Zandi the Alzheimer’s risk declined by over sixty percent for people who took at least 400 mg of E and 500 mg of C together. The theory is that C is a water-soluble vitamin and E is a fat-soluble vitamin; C boosts the antioxidant effect in E.

As always check with your doctor when taking vitamins; there could be a drug interaction or a personal intolerance. Be careful to take the right dosage. Those of you already taking a multi-vitamin supplement and feel that you are already getting C and E, please note that the dosages in multi-vitamin tablets are way below what this study used. Note: There are two different kinds of E vitamins, natural and synthetic. Please take the more effective natural version as your body absorbs far less synthetic E than the mg dosage stated on the bottle.

Also be careful not to take too high a dosage. More isn’t always more. Remember higher dosages could be stressful to the body, and often we excrete, particularly water soluble vitamins, which are excessive. Higher dosages might cause diarrhea.

In addition, other highly recommended suggestions for prevention are: lower your blood pressure and cholesterol levels; exercise to be heart and brain smart. Now you can take your vitamins.
