The topic of the second episode of the Vitamin D Council podcast is vitamin D and the brain. In this episode, Dr. John Cannell sits down with Dr. David Llewellyn to discuss a recent study he was involved in on the relationship between vitamin D and dementia that was published in the journal Neurology that made headlines.
We also provide a general overview of the research on the effects of vitamin D on neurological and cognitive function and health as well as its role in mental health conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease.
