High vitamin E levels can prevent age-related decline in brain function

Older people with higher vitamin E levels are less likely to experience the decline in intellectual function that occurs with aging.

Austrian researchers assessed vitamin E levels and intellectual function in almost 1800 adults aged from 50 to 75. They found that those with higher vitamin E levels were less likely to have low scores on tests of intellectual capacity. These tests are used to measure decline in Alzheimer’s Disease and other types of dementia.
