Vitamin D, Mediterranean Diet Help Lower Risk of Alzheimer’s
Posted Nov 02 2012 12:00am
Two different studies have highlighted natural weapons we may have at our
disposal in our fight against developing Alzheimer’s disease. One is Vitamin D
and the other is our diet.
We’ve long known that vitamin D, generally absorbed through sun exposure but
often supplemented, is necessary for bone strength. During the last few years,
evidence has been accumulating showing that a low level of vitamin D likely
contributes to cardiovascular disease, some cancers, strokes, depression and
some metabolic disorders.
