Vitamin D May Lower Risk Of Alzheimer’s Disease

A study published in the Journal of Gerontology: Medical Science reported that the highest average intakes of Vitamin D reduced the risk of Alzheimer’s disease by a whopping 77%.
The researchers concluded that low consumption of Vitamin D precedes the onset of Alzheimer’s disease.
The researchers analyzed data from 498 women with an average age of 79.8 who did not take Vitamin D supplements. The researchers assessed the intake of Vitamin D from food frequency questionnaires and followed the women for seven years.
They found that the highest levels of Vitamin D had the lowest risk of Alzheimer’s.
If you take a Vitamin D supplement to make sure you are getting a sufficient amount, make sure its Vitamin D3 and you can take around 5000 IUs per day.
