Antioxidants, omega-3 help clear amyloid in early Alzheimer's disease

Antioxidants, omega-3 help clear amyloid in early Alzheimer's diseaseJuly 1 2015. The July 2015 issue of The FASEB Journal describes a study of patients with cognitive impairment or early Alzheimer's disease which found that supplementation with fish oil (a significant source of omega-3 fatty acids) and antioxidants improved the clearance of amyloid beta, a toxic protein that accumulates in the brains of Alzheimer's disease patients.

The study included 12 participants with minor cognitive impairment (MCI), 2 participants with pre-MCI, and 7 Alzheimer disease patients. Phagocytosis of amyloid beta 1-42, resolvin D1 production and cognitive status were evaluated before and after 4 to 17 months of supplementation.

While phagocytosis of amyloid beta by monocytes improved in those with MCI and pre-MCI, the increase observed in Alzheimer's disease patients was not significant. Resolvin D1, which has been shown to stimulate amyloid beta phagocytosis in vitro, was found to have in increased by 80% in MCI and pre-MCI patients.
