Vitamins plus ibuprofen may ward off Alzheimer's
For patients at high risk of Alzheimer's disease, taking a combination of vitamins E and C plus ibuprofen significantly reduces their risk, results of a longitudinal study suggest.
Specifically, the combination seems to benefit people who carry a variant of the gene for apolipoprotein, APOE-4, which is known to put them at high risk for developing Alzheimer's disease.
"We found that for people at low risk, taking vitamin C and E alone is sufficient to further reduce their risk," Dr. Majid Fotuhi told Reuters Health. "But for those with (APOE-4), the combination exerts a synergistic benefit."
As to what dose of ibuprofen to use, Fotuhi urges caution, since the drug can lead to stomach ulcers. He recommends a dose no higher than 100 milligrams per day.
He is so encouraged by these findings that he has patented a combination pill containing vitamins C and E, ibuprofen, and "a small amount of omega-3 fatty acid."
