Low Vitamin D = Alzheimer's?

By Editorial Staff

There is no known cure for Alzheimer's disease, a progressive form of dementia characterized by short-term memory loss, confusion, irritability and mood swings, among other symptoms. Despite the lack of a cure for this neurodegenerative disorder, recent evidence suggests a potential link between the condition and low blood levels of vitamin D.

A study published in an August 2014 issue of Neurology is the latest to suggest Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia are more common in people with vitamin D deficiency. The study involving more than 1,600 elderly adults (age 65 and older) found that the risk of suffering Alzheimer's / dementia increased with the severity of vitamin D deficiency. In other words, lower blood levels of vitamin D equals a higher risk of dementia, including Alzheimer's.

In the meantime, abundant evidence does connect adequate vitamin D intake with bone health, cell growth, and immune function; while emerging evidence suggests it could play a role in cancer prevention and other conditions. Talk to your doctor to learn more about the power of vitamin D.
