[Research] Eat more foods containing vitamin C and beta-carotene good for dementia

Gac, a popular fruit in Vietnam, contains more beta-carotene Many people believe that eating more vegetables is good for memory, but vegetables are best because we can not use all? A recent study on the concentrations of antioxidant vitamins and minerals in the human body and normal people with Alzheimer’s disease (dementia) light shows link between levels of vitamin C and beta-carotene. Accordingly, in the second type of disease is lower than normal. This means that eating a lot of vegetables and then crimson, vegetables and sweet, carrots (beta-carotene) or orange, lemon (vitamin C) will help people with Alzheimer’s disease to prevent or slow the development of symptoms symptoms of dementia. Made by two German scientists, professor of epidemiology Gabriele Nagel and neuroscience professor Christine von Arnim, the study focuses on understanding the difference between the two groups in age from 65 to 90 . In particular, one group of 74 patients with mild Alzheimer’s and the second group of 158 healthy people. These people will go through psychological tests, nerve, blood tests, and measurement of body mass index to detect the difference between their elements. Results obtained from the study showed that the concentration of the antioxidant vitamin C and beta-carotene in the serum of the patient group is much lower than the normal group. Meanwhile, as well as antioxidants, but vitamin E (ti, lycopene (found in tomatoes), and coenzyme Q10 (beef heart, soybean oil, parsley, etc.) the similarities between the two groups. This result clearly help guide dementia patients what to eat and what not to eat. Nevertheless, like many other studies related to health, Professor Nagel said that the need to have more tests with broader number of participants to reaffirm the positive role of vitamin C and beta-carontene for dementia. Though unconfirmed completely, for most of us, having a diet rich in vegetables will also remain healthy, that there is nothing to discuss. For patients with dementia, the addition of this substance to the tools you need in your diet every day.
