Alzheimer's & Senile Dementia

Alzheimer's Disease, Senile Dementia, Memory Loss & Nutrition

Alzheimer's disease is a degenerative disorder of the brain which causes progressive decline in memory and general cognitive abilities. Slowly and inexorably, the disease attacks nerve cells in all parts of the cortex of the brain, as well as some surrounding structures, thereby impairing a person's abilities to govern emotions, recognize errors and patterns, coordinate movement, and remember. At the last, an afflicted person loses all memory and mental functioning. There is no recovery.

Apart from the progressive destruction of nerve cells, a wide range of abnormalities can be seen in the brains of patients who have died from Alzheimer's, including extracellular deposits of amyloid protein and microscopic tangles of fibrils inside nerve cells.

Currently, there is no known cure for Alzheimer's Disease.


The following supplements may be of benefit, especially in the prevention or earlier stages of the disease:

  • Carnosine has many uses and is a strong antioxidant. It has been shown to demonstrate neuro-protective properties and may be a useful supplement for sufferers of Alzheimers Disease.
  • Omega 3 Fish Oils - During a seven year study of residents in nursing homes, American researchers have concluded that the Omega 3 fatty acids found in fish have a protective benefit against Alzheimers disease.
