Diet and Dementia
A scale to assess level of dementia and also, a discussion of some nutrition that has been shown to ameliorate some of the signs. For real. The article is linked below.
A diet was formulated with high levels of Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Selenium, Beta Carotene, Lipoic Acid, Carnitine, Carotenoids, Flavonoids, EPA and DHA. Vitamins E and C are powerful antioxidants to help with brain aging and cognitive dysfunction. Beta Carotene is a precursor to vitamin A and selenium is a mineral that supports antioxidant activity. L-carnitine is a mitochondrial cofactor that helps improve the efficiency of cellular energy production. It also help to burn fat, so you will see it used in weight management foods too. Lipoic acid helps to recycle vitamins E and C. Carotenoids and flavonoids are the antioxidants that come from deeply colored fruits and vegetables. And DHA and EPA are the fatty acids that help to support cell membrane.
