Not all vitamins and supplements are consistently beneficial. As we age, we tend to accumulate more and more prescriptions, and our relationship with our medications becomes one of avoidance and duty or fear— unless we’re somehow motivated to take the pill through positive results or actually feeling better.
Vitamin D has a good reputation when it comes to the heart, and now a new neurological study tells us that it’s also good for the head.
In addition, having too much of any one supplement can have a negative impact on the body. Physicians always keep this delicate balance in mind when adding medications to their patients’ regimens. Vitamin D, however, seems to be able to consistently deliver positive results.
Vitamin D has a good reputation when it comes to the heart, and now new concentrations are associated with a significant decrease in the risk of all causes of dementia and Alzheimer’s.
We now know that Vitamin D seems to help the bones and the brain work better. Vitamin D level is typically checked through a serum blood test. It is very simple and relatively inexpensive.
As we approach more cloudy weather and spend more time indoors with family and friends, use this information wisely and ask your doctor to check you Vitamin D levels. Request your appointment today!
