The most complete and up-to-date resource on the powerful benefits of nutritional supplements for the treatment and prevention of Alzheimer’s disease
• Provides an easy-to-follow program of supplements to optimize the benefits of Alzheimer’s treatment and maximize the impact of prevention strategies
• Shows how standard treatments do not counteract the oxidative stress and chronic inflammation at the source of Alzheimer’s
• Also addresses related complications and symptoms such as altered sleep patterns, memory impairment, and behavior changes like depression and anger
In this practical scientific guide, leading researcher in cancer, heart disease, and diabetes prevention Kedar N. Prasad, Ph.D., reveals the latest revolutionary discoveries on the use of antioxidants to prevent and treat Alzheimer’s disease. He details how the proper combinations of vitamin and antioxidant supplements can greatly increase the effectiveness of standard medical treatments for Alzheimer’s as well as delay or even prevent onset despite a family history of the disease.
Prasad shows how oxidative stress and chronic inflammation play a significant role in the initiation and progression of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s. He provides an easy-to-follow daily supplement regime for multiple age groups to target free radical damage and inflammation and stop the progression of Alzheimer’s and related complications such as altered sleep patterns, memory impairment, and behavior changes like depression and anger. Reviewing the scientific research on supplements and Alzheimer’s, he debunks the flawed conclusions of the neurological community that vitamins and antioxidants are ineffective, revealing how their studies focused on specific micronutrients used alone rather than synergistic combinations.
Offering the missing complement to the standard care of medications promoted by mainstream medicine, this guide provides a truly holistic approach to Alzheimer’s prevention, treatment, and care.

“Fight Alzheimer’s with Vitamins and Antioxidants by Kedar Prasad, Ph.D., contains clinically and scientifically valid information presented in an easy-to-follow format that informs the reader about the value of vitamins, antioxidants, and micronutrients in preventing and/or slowing the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease. It captures up-to-date scientific information on the pathology of Alzheimer’s disease and the state of its therapy and presents a straightforward argument on the values of vitamins and antioxidants.
“The tables that show dietary reference intakes (DRI) are a great feature. The information allows the text to serve as a source of reference, supplying data that readers can use to make their own judgments about dosages of vitamins and antioxidants.”
— Clivel G. Charlton, Ph.D., director for the Center for Molecular and Behavioral Neuroscience College
“Fight Alzheimer’s with Vitamins and Antioxidants offers a simple and inexpensive means to delay the onset and progression of the disease. This safe, straightforward approach involves readily accessible vitamins and other micronutrients. Prasad’s book is full of valid and excellent suggestions on how to interfere with the evolution of Alzheimer’s. I strongly recommend this book.”
