Vitamin E
Vitamin E is actually eight components (isomers) that work synergistically to provide you with a potent antioxidant. In a recent study published in the Journal of Internal Medicine, investigators found that people with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) or with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) had lower levels of various vitamin E isomers compared with adults who had healthy brain function. In fact, the researchers found that specific isomers—alpha tocotrienol, gamma tocotrienol, and gamma-tocopherol—“are the most important vitamin E forms in differentiating AD and MCI cases from controls.”

This study is important because it points out that identification of vitamin E along with automated magnetic resonance imaging measures can help clinicians distinguish people with MCI and Alzheimer’s disease and predict which MCI individuals will likely advance to Alzheimer’s. A Nutra Ingredient article noted, “It is encouraging to find consistent and positive research results supporting the importance of full spectrum vitamin E…in cognitive improvement.”
