Palm fruitsDementia is a devastating condition. The loss of memory can be frighting. Not realizing who you are, where you are, and not recognizing those around you, even those who you have known for decades is a scary scenario. This disease is particularly dreadful for loved ones who find it hard to understand and horrific that they are not recognized.

Experiments being conducted in Italy are showing that vitamin E antioxidant which has an antioxidant function that can help those who suffer with these neurodegenerative diseases. A study in Sweden showed that people over 80 who had high levels of vitamin E in their blood were at a reduced risk of contracting Alzheimer’s. Within vitamin E there is a compound known as tocotrienols. Palm fruit oil is the richest source of tocotrienols known.

Much more research needs to be done, however the preliminary outlook is very bright. Many fruits are rich in vitamin E such as mangoes, papayas and apricots. Once you know which fruits are good antioxidants, a strict regimen of vitamin E and the antioxidant it provides in a diet derived from antioxidant rich fruit and fruit oils can help us fight back and attack many neurodegenerative diseases such as dementia and Alzheimer’s. The hope of course is that someday these terrible afflictions will be wiped from the earth. For now vitamin E which is abundant in fruits appears to be the best hope in the fight.
