Exercise, Counseling, and Omega-3 May Slow Cognitive Lapse

(MedPage Today) A combination of exercise, nutrition, and cognitive counseling along with omega-3 fatty acid supplementation slowed cognitive decline in older adults with memory impairment, researchers found.
In the MAPT trial, the combination of supplements and "multidomain" training -- as well as multidomain training alone -- was significantly more effective at stalling cognitive decline than supplements alone or placebo, reported Bruno Vellas, MD, PhD, of the University of Toulouse in France, and colleagues…
These treatments seemed to be most helpful to ApoE4 carriers, who were already at increased risk for Alzheimer's disease, as well as those who had more severe cognitive impairment at baseline, Vellas said.
Community: There are many practical things we can do to prevent, delay, or minimize the severity of cognitive decline.
