The disease can have a devastating impact on quality of life, with patients relying on caregivers for standard daily living activities. Whether it is memory impairment, deterioration, confusion or anger suffered by patients, this highly disruptive neurological disease demands attention. Vitamin E is vital for neural function and its deficiency can lead to neurological dysfunction, causing problems with co-ordination, balance and speech. It also has an antioxidant function in the brain – as a free radical scavenger and constituent of neural membranes, preventing the oxidation of lipids and PUFAs. Now, recent studies have found that maintaining a high level of vitamin E results in marked improvements for mental health and can be linked individually with a decrease in the onset of Alzheimer’s type dementia. Join our webinar and hear our speakers Prof. Maurice Dyksen and DSM’s Dr. Manfred Eggersdorfer and Jacob Bauly present their latest findings on vitamin E and its potential role in curbing the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. *This information is solely for scientific informational purposes only and not intended for marketing and/or sales claims purposes.
