    Vitamin E and Alzheimer’s Disease

    May 2, 2019

    Vitamin E and Alzheimer’s Disease

    Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin that acts as an antioxidant. There has been much research outlining how vitamin E works in the body, and especially how vitamin E may prevent neurological-related conditions. As such many individuals take vitamin E to combat oxidative stress-related diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease.

    This talk will outline what is known about vitamin E in the brain, drawing on a recent paper published with a student at Ursuline entitled “Vitamin E: Mechanism and Transport in the CNS.” Additionally, information about how each person may respond differently to vitamin E supplementation will also be discussed based a paper published with a student in 2017 entitled: “Vitamin E and Alzheimer’s disease: Is it Time for Personalized Medicine.”
