Vitamin C and β-carotene for Dementia
Antioxidants, like vitamins C and E are said to be associated with lower risk of Alzheimer’s disease. A study published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease found that “vitamin C and β-carotene concentrations (in the blood) were significantly lower in demented than in control (normal) persons even after adjusting for school education, intake of dietary supplements, smoking habits, body mass index, and alcohol consumption.” This caused researchers to conclude that “our findings suggest an association of vitamin C and β-carotene with dementia.”
Clearly, the right vitamins supplements can make a difference in your long-term health. Ask your doctor of chiropractic if the vitamins you are taking are correct for your age, gender and lifestyle.
