Study Finds Vitamin D Fights Dementia

January 23, 2009

England (ChattahBox) – A new study has shown that vitamin D supplements could possible fight off the effects of dementia in elderly patients.

According to the study done at the Peninsula Medical School, located in Exeter, the use of vitamin D could be crucial in protecting the brains mental decline later in life, and that it could be an accessible, and affordable method of fighting dementia.

“You can supply vitamin D very cheaply…a few pence a day,” Dr Iain Lang, a researcher on the project, explained.
“Given the growing burden of care associated with dementia, even if it reduced 10 per cent of dementia, it would make a massive difference. The amount that’s contained in a regular multi-vitamin tablet is fine.”
It has been theorized that the vitamin will trigger more brain cell development, and could effectively prevent dementia as we age. Middle-aged men and women are being encouraged to increase vitamin D intake as a preventative measure.
