    Default Vitamin C: Alzheimer's treatment?

    (No Medical sub-forum, so this fits here.)

    [Link]

    The research findings are now being presented in the Journal of Biological Chemistry.
    The brains of people with Alzheimer's disease contain lumps of so-called amyloid plaques which consist of misfolded protein aggregates. They cause nerve cell death in the brain and the first nerves to be attacked are the ones in the brain's memory centre.
    "When we treated brain tissue from mice suffering from Alzheimer's disease with vitamin C, we could see that the toxic protein aggregates were dissolved. Our results show a previously unknown model for how vitamin C affects the amyloid plaques," says Katrin Mani, reader in Molecular Medicine at Lund
    This has profound implications if the research holds up. Could oranges, cranberries and other vitamin C rich foods protect you from Alzheimer's?

    Cool. I just found out that I don't have the gene for Alzheimer's (my grandpa died of it). But this stuff is really good: http://www.emergenc.com/ I drink like 3 packs a day, lol.

    There are conflicting results for Vitamin C in the treatment of Alzheimers. I don't think Vitamin C can reverse neurodegeneration to put it bluntly.
