VITAMIN E FIGHTS ALZHEIMER''S
Who hasn't had at least a few catch-your-breath moments at what some of us call a senior moment, and the optimists call a midlife moment? Nobody wants to lose their memories or their memory—and most of us won't. But if you want to be on the safe side—eating a health and wellness diet, where you eat because it is good for you rather than it tastes good—although that's nice, too—is a very sensible step. Not researchers report that it looks as if taking a daily dose of 2000 International Units (IU) of Vitamin E might delay deterioration in abilities in patients with mild-to-moderate Alzheimer's. Read the report in The Guardian.
The National Institutes of Health (US) says: Many foods have vitamin E including vegetable oils (such as wheat germ, sunflower, and safflower oils), nuts (such as almonds), seeds (such as sunflower seeds), and green vegetables (such as spinach and broccoli).
