Recent study finds vitamin D improves cognition

Posted on: March 10, 2017   by  Amber Tovey


A new randomized controlled trial (RCT) published in the journal Experimental Gerontology discovered that low and high dose vitamin D supplementation improved cognition.

Observational research has provided a substantial amount of evidence linking low vitamin D levels to reduced cognition. These studies have also found that insufficient vitamin D levels are associated with a 20% increased risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease. The presence of vitamin D receptors throughout the brain adds to this theory.

    Why can’t I read this article? I am already a lifetime member. I signed in but unable to find the article. So I went here again and said upgrade membership to see full article, but there is nothing to upgrade.

      OK I found a place it said upgrade on my phone which I get. But I still cannot get into the article. Do I have to have a paid membership in order to see it? if not what do I do to fix it?
