The sunshine vitamin strikes again…
21st May 2009
Levels of vitamin D were measured in 3,369 men aged 40 to 79 years from eight different european locations and the men then had then cognitive function assessed. Those with lower levels of vitamin D showed poorer levels of cognitive function. The researchers acknowledge that more research is needed, espeically into the mechanisms for this action, but the results once again show how important this vitamin is proving to be. Professor Tim Spector from Kings College London suggests that vitamin D may be only one manifestation of poor diet which leads to poor mental performance.
So with this bank holiday set to be a sunny one, we have another perfect excuse to get outside and enjoy the weather!
