This study examined whether individuals who regularly use supplements of the antioxidant vitamins E and C have a lower risk of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) than nonusers.
The study followed 957,740 individuals 30 years of age or older. Regular use of vitamin E supplements was associated with a lower risk of dying of ALS. The results therefore suggest that vitamin E supplementation could have a role in ALS prevention.
Further details can be found in the study.
