The Aging Brain and Vitamin E

As people age, they are increasingly looking for ways to support their brain health.  Many people rely on their multivitamin to supply vitamin E.

If you take a closer look, you’ll notice that most only contain one of the eight forms of vitamin E (usually alpha-tocopherol).  Only taking one form may lower levels of the other forms.

A new study shows that low levels of the eight forms of vitamin E are associated with increased rates of mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s disease.
