PJ Josmi, PD Divya and JM Rosemol
Pharmacological statistics for Alzheimer’s disease, the most common age related brain disorder in the world, are bedeviled with undesirable side effects after prolonged treatment. In this contest, nutraceuticals are gaining importance for prevention as well as in therapy. The advantage of nutraceuticals has opened doors to the use of alternative strategies to tackle neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease. The role of nutraceuticals in Alzheimer’s disease as nutraceuticals have been able to position themselves as a safer and better alternative due to the fact that they are naturally occurring compounds having less side effects. The aim of this review is to summarize the effect of selected nutraceuticals against this age related cognitive impairment. It also highlights the beneficial impact of antioxidant, flavonoids, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins and other natural substances on Alzheimer’s disease for the maintenance of a good cognitive performance.
