    Hello, Fibroinsd.

    I don't think there's consensus about the effect of Vitamin E on Alzheimer's, but there seems to be some indication that it can help. About halfway down this page from alz.org, there is a brief discussion of Vitamin E. If you google Vitamin E, there's a lot more information. I read something not to long ago about the a recent study showing some risk from high doses of Vitamin E, but am not able to find it right now.

    Vitamin D seems to play an important part in Alzheimer's. If the patient's levels are low, more Vitamin D can sometimes make a noticeable difference.

    Best wishes,
    Carol
