A recent study published in the Journal of Neuroscience looked at the potential benefits omega-3 may have on Alzheimer’s Disease. Researchers found that a reduction in a specific protein, SorLA (LR11) has been found in late-onset Alzheimer’s disease (LOAD) but not early-onset AD. This new study observed that DHA, an essential omega-3 fatty acid, significantly increases LR11 in multiple systems including the brain. Therefore, if taking Omega-3 can increase SorLA/LR11 [...]

A large European study of 20,649 men and women aged 40-79 years were examined over the past 10 years. The objective was to examine the relationship between their baseline plasma vitamin C concentrations and risk of incident stroke.* Over an average of 10 years, 448 incident stokes occurred. Those with higher baseline plasma vitamin C concentrations had a 42% lower risk of stroke than those with the lower vitamin C [...]

Researchers studied 1739 participants with a mean age of 59 years old, with no previous history of cardiovascular disease. At the beginning of the study, researchers recorded the participants levels of vitamin D. During follow up, approximately five years later, 120 individuals had already developed their first cardiovascular incidents.* Researchers found that those with vitamin D (25(OH)D) lower than 15ng/mL were 62% more likely to develop cardiovascular events than those [...]

An observational 10-year study of more than 35,000 middle-aged U.S. women observed the women’s use of dietary supplements and occurrence of cataracts.* The study found significant evidence that women who got more lutein, zeaxanthin and vitamin E were less likely to develop cataracts than women who are lacking intake of these nutrients. In fact, the women who got the most lutein, zeaxanthin and vitamin E were 18% less likely to [...]
