Alternatives & Supplements
Reviewed by Benedict Albensi, PhD, BCMAS, CRQM
Research suggests that deficiencies in Vitamin D and B Complex can increase one's risk of developing dementia. An experienced memory specialist will run a blood test to determine whether you should take Vitamin D or B supplements. There is not much evidence that other supplements or alternatives can cause or prevent AD, though you may hear claims about coconut oil, tumeric or other alternative medications that people claim are effective. Consult with a memory specialist before taking supplements to prevent or treat dementia.
