Vitamin D does not offer protection against Alzheimer

There is no strong evidence that vitamin D protects against Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's, multiple sclerosis and other neurodegenerative diseases.

Our bodies get vitamin D when our skin interacts with ultraviolet rays, but vitamins are also present in certain foods and supplements.

Meanwhile, the above conclusion on vitamin D interconnection with neurodegenerative diseases came from some researchers in Australia after conducting a systematic review and analysis of more than 70 clinical and pre-clinical studies, transmeton Indeksonline.

They reported their findings to a document published in "Nutritional Neuroscience".

The author of the study, headed Krystal Iacopetta, a PhD candidate at the University of Adelaide, says: "Past studies have found that patients with neurodegenerative diseases tend to have lower levels of vitamin D compared to healthy members of the population ".

But what was not clear of these, she and her colleagues point out, is whether the low level of vitamin D in the body contributes to neurodegenerative disease.

However, they did not find strong evidence of a "neuroprotect" role for vitamin D, so they did not exclude the possibility that "sun vitamin" may be a sign of another protective factor.

They add that further studies are needed to identify a mechanism through which ultraviolet exposure may have this effect.
