‘Dementia is reversible’ story misleading, comments Alzheimer’s Society

It has been claimed that ‘dementia is reversible’ with dietary supplements.

Alzheimer’s Society comment:

‘Dementia is a progressive condition for which there is currently no cure. Misleading comments such as these only serve to give people false hope. One in three people will die with dementia. There are treatments available that can help slow the progression of the condition but there is no evidence that dietary supplements could reverse or treat the condition.

Research does show that there are things you can do to reduce your risk of developing dementia. The best advice is to ensure that you eat a healthy and balanced diet, take regular exercise and get your blood pressure and cholesterol checked regularly.’
