There is a large body of existing data on nutrition in Alzheimer's disease (AD). We are conducting a systematic review of published scientific literature to determine the role of specific nutrients, both individually and in combination, in the prevention and treatment of AD. This will contribute towards a structured evidence base to help inform the clinical management of AD. The objective of the systematic review is to evaluate the strength of evidence from both observational cohort studies and randomized controlled trials on the role of fats, vitamins, antioxidants and other nutrients in the prevention and treatment of AD. We present here the methodology of our systematic review.
