The news about Vita D just keeps getting better and better…especially for all things connected with the brain.  Optimizing Vita D levels can prevent dementia, Alzheimers and depression.  It acts as an anti-inflammatory and an immune booster.

New research shows:

  • Seniors with low levels of Vita D had a 53 percent increased risk for dementia, and a 70 percent higher risk of Alzheimer’s
  • Severely deficient individuals (<30 ng/mL) had a 125 percent higher risk for dementia and 120 percent higher risk for Alzheimer’s

One study, which tracked over 1,200 people aged 65 to 95, showed that blood vitamin D levels were 14 percent lower in individuals with major and minor depression.  Vitamin D levels below 20 ng/mL had an 85 percent increased risk of depression compared to those with vitamin D levels greater than 30 ng/mL.

Living in Pennsylvania makes it hard to get enough Vita D, even in the summer.  With winter approaching, this is the time to build your vitamin D levels.  Vita D deficiency has long been associated with SAD, or Seasonal Affective Disorder, which manifests as depression over the dark winter months.

Maximizing your Vita D is so easy and has such profound effects.  Get yours checked today.  Make sure your levels are in the 50-70 ng/mL range.  Read more about how to test and how to identify a well-balanced source.
