Science! Vitamin D May Protect Against Cognitive Decline

Stock up on your vitamin D everyone.

According to an article on IFLScience, studies have shown there may be a possible correlation between a vitamin D deficiency and a decline in cognitive function, particularly for individuals over 60. According to one researcher quoted in the article:

“There were some people in the study who had low vitamin D who didn’t decline at all and some people with adequate vitamin D who declined quickly. But on average, people with low vitamin D declined two to three times as fast as those with adequate vitamin D.”

It would be a shame to learn all this jiu jitsu, and then lose it all later in life.

Now if you will all excuse me, I’m going to go sit in the sunshine, drink some milk, and then have some salmon and…something else really high in vitamin D.

Take a look at the article, and have a great day everyone!
