Scientists led by a French researcher suspected that low levels of vitamin D were linked to cognitive decline among older adults. So they wanted to see whether dietary intake of vitamin D might predict who would get Alzheimer's disease.
They studied 498 women who were 75 or older, dividing the women into three groups: no dementia, Alzheimer's disease, and other dementia.
What they found (and published in the Journal of Gerontology: Medical Science) is pretty amazing.
The women who had the highest dietary intakes of vitamin D were a whopping 77 percent less likely to be diagnosed with Alzheimer's in seven years, compared with the women who took in the lowest levels of vitamin D.
One of the benefits of vitamin D is cognitive protection, vitamin D intake could be a key to keeping your mind sharp and free of Alzheimer's.

Absorption is the main issue of this vitamin for people aged 50+. I have searched for the best means to solve this issue.This company has clinical studies to back their claims. www.shopnutrafuels.com The Energize product is B12 Methylcobalamin, the highest grade B12 available.|
