Vitamin D3, Omega-3 Fatty Acid DHA, Shown To Have Positive Impact On Alzheimer’s

February 5, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
U.S. researchers who conducted a small pilot study among Alzheimer’s patients found that vitamin D3 and the omega-3 fatty acid DHA regulate key genes and signaling networks in the brain. The compounds may someday play a role in boosting the immune system to control inflammation and improve plaque clearance. Amyloid plaques in the brain are the main characteristics of Alzheimer’s disease. The researchers suggested that supplementation with vitamin D3 and omega-3 fatty acids might need to be carefully balanced for each patient to help promote efficient clearing of amyloid-beta plaques.
