« on: December 22, 2016, 11:06:16 pm »
A new study published in The Journal of Gerontology showed
an association between vitamin D status and risk of cognitive decline and impairment in the Chinese elderly.
Individuals with low vitamin D levels had as much as 2-3 times the risk of developing significant cognitive impairment compared to adults with healthy vitamin D levels.
The results of this study give support to the idea that vitamin D is neuroprotective, and improved vitamin D status may be beneficial in slowing the increasing prevalence cognitive decline in aging populations
