Vitamin Levels Tied to Cognitive Wellness
Posted Tuesday, July 20, 2010

A number of recent studies published in the Archives of Internal Medicine and Archives of Neurology have found that vitamin D and vitamin E appear to play an important role as we age.

Two independent long-term studies which have recently come to completion have found that higher vitamin D levels seem to lead to a reduced risk for Parkinson's disease, while low levels of vitamin D spell trouble for our ability to think clearly, learn, and memorize.

Additionally, another long-course experiment has found that consuming higher levels of vitamin E is associated with lower risk of dementia and Alzheimer's disease.
