Study Says Vitamin D Sufficiency Is Tied To Cognitive Health*

Women with increased (ie adequate) levels of vitamin D have better global cognition (i.e. overall cognitive function) and longer attention span, aka attention accuracy. / Ml. In men, adequate levels of vitamin D were also associated with improved attention accuracy. *

Thanks to patterns of association between cognitive performance and vitamin D status, researchers have determined that a dose-response relationship (that is, increased levels of the “sunshine vitamin” to help promote and maintain cognitive function) may exist — particularly in women. *

This data supports what mindbodygreen already knows to be true: Maintaining adequate vitamin D throughout life is critical to supporting brain health (and a host of other aspects of our health) now and as we age. *
