Vitamin D and Alzheimer’s

Alzheimer’s disease is a malfunction of the neurons in the brain which causes loss of memory and disorientation and unfortunately it eventually leads to death. It is actually the 6th leading cause of death in the US, according to the Alzheimer’s Association. While it is not completely preventable or curable, there are things we can do to help keep our minds healthy for as long as possible.

Work performed in the lab of Mathew Mizwicki, PhD (Assistant Researcher at UCLA) found that vitamin D in the circulatory system may have the power to heal parts of the brain. Based on their findings, vitamin D can help slow down the progression of Alzheimer’s disease and may even be able to prevent it all together. These discoveries are going to have a huge impact on the future of this disease.

Mathew Mizwicki, PhD did a Grassroots Health webinar where he explained the power of vitamin D and how it could have an impact on Alzheimer’s disease. View the full webinar here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=djvE9mhIjUI
