Make Sure You're Getting Enough Vitamin D

Posted by @pamegannp in Brain & Nervous System, Feb 3, 2013

A new study indicates that women who have lower-than-normal vitamin d blood serum levels are much more likely to develop cognitive impairment and Alzheimer's Disease.

The study involved over five thousand participants, and reinforces why it's so vitally important that women obtain sufficient levels of vitamin D throughout the course of their lives.

It's not just osteoporosis and rickets anymore. The list is staggering.

The full story is here:

Yep. It is true. My favorite medical references are articles from Mayo Clinic, Scientific American, and New England Journal Of Medicine. It is just difficult to get Vitamin D living in North East section. Vitamin D does more than keeping good bone health. Best regards!

I was wondering if Vitamin D could possibly reverse Alzheimer's . The brain is a complex and interesting organ because it can re wire itself

There is some evidence showing that it can help prevent it.

Vitamin D is found naturally in fatty fish, eggs, liver, and some cheeses, but none of these sources contain enough to meet your daily needs. (You'd have to eat 95 eggs to come close.) You can buy D-fortified foods, but Holick warns that labels can't always be trusted. His research found that only 30 percent of milk brands he tested contained the amount of D they claimed to. And 20 percent of nonfat milks had none.
