Here's Something to Remember

A study just released suggests that taking vitamins C & E together may help protect brain cells from Alzheimer's disease. This study of 4,740 people conducted at Johns Hopkins University School of Public Health and published in the January issue of the Archives of Neurology found that those taking vitamins C & E were 78% less likely to have had a diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease, and those taking the vitamins were 64% less likely to have developed the disease four years later. Researchers believe that vitamins C & E, which act as antioxidants, help shield the brain from damaging molecules called free radicals by destroying the free radicals before they can damage brain cells. Watkins offers a variety of supplements that contain vitamins C, E and other protective antioxidants, including Superfood Multiple, Children's Chewable, Eye Care and Female Formula. For an extra dose of all-natural vitamin E and several other antioxidants, try Watkins E+CoQ10.
