Vitamin E from Tocotrienols and Tocopherols Prevent Alzheimer’s

Swedish researchers1 measured the blood levels of all 8 types of vitamin E in 232 cognitive-healthy subjects age 80+ and then followed them for 6 years to see who developed Alzheimer’s disease. The higher the blood levels of all four tocotrienols (alpha, beta, gamma, and delta) and all four tocopherols (alpha, beta, gamma, and delta) the risk of developing Alzheimer’s was reduced up to 55%.
The researchers emphasized the importance of all 8 forms of vitamin E, as opposed to only the most common form (d-alpha tocopherol), as the one form alone did not confer benefit. Many doctors continue to warn elderly patients not to take vitamin E based on fictitious information promoted by the American heart Association in an effort to get seniors to take drugs and not take vitamins. The tocotrienol form of vitamin E is also a superior cardiovascular supplement and completely safe for seniors. And vitamin E is absolutely essential for the proper function of the immune system in seniors. This is more evidence of the blatant damage caused by the medical profession in its blind promotion of toxic drugs.
