How Low Vitamin D Could Affect the Brain


Vtamin D is essential for building strong
bones. But new evidence suggests that it may also play an important role in protecting
against cognitive decline. I’m Shelby Cullinan with your latest health news. A new study from Rutgers University and the
University of California found that cognitive function declined when older adults had insufficient
vitamin D levels. Vitamin D is a nutrient found in some foods that is needed for many
of the body’s essential functions — muscles need it to move, nerves need it to carry messages
between the brain and the body, and the immune system needs it to fight off invading bacteria
and viruses. According to the study team, low vitamin D levels may also increase the
risk of high blood pressure and heart disease. They also noted that cells in the brain are
sensitive to vitamin D levels. Speak to your doctor about getting more vitamin D into your
diet.

  1. Today is my birthday and i am trying something new, still learning how to do it but i have started a podcast about my vitamin D recovery i was at a 7 and now I'm at 34 (3.5 months later.) Also if i get 1000 people to listen to my podcast it said ill get 15 dollars. I don't think that will happen but i always go straight to comments when watching videos about Vitamin D so I figured I'd try it out. 🙂
