Vitamin D Improves Cognitive Performance

Vitamin D plays an important part in brain function. There are vitamin D receptors throughout your brain which affect proteins involved with learning and memory, motor control, and possibly social functions.

Researchers recently explored the association between vitamin D intake and cognitive performance in older adults. The main finding of the study was that weekly dietary intake of vitamin D was significantly associated with cognitive performance

Hive Health Media reports:

“[The researchers] note that vitamin D has potential neuroprotective effects. Other related research has shown an association between vitamin d deficiency and Alzheimer’s disease ... [V]itamin d deficiency is a measurable and modifiable risk factor for preventing potential cognitive decline.”
