Recent research highlights the relationship between vitamin D and dementia. Turns out maintaining adequate levels of vitamin D may help prevent the onset of brain disease commonly called dementia. Even the news media has latched onto this one. Vitamin D deficiency is associated with many diseases, including susceptibility and recovery in COVID and more conditions including dementia.
As it turns out and as we have long suspected vitamin D is critical for brain health.
But what about its involvement with neuropathy and chronic pain? Over the last few years we have highlighted it’s role, and the fact that vitamin D deficiencies are associated with chronic pain.
Furthermore vitamin D deficiencies are often associated with peripheral neuropathy.
Often times there is no direct cause and effect noted but we do know that vitamin D deficiency is associated with chronic poor health and many diseases and illnesses.
But why is this? How can one nutrient have such profound effects? The reason is vitamin acts as a hormone. Also acts as a cellular protectant.
One mistake that too many make however is simply blindly taking vitamin D without having it’s blood levels measured. This is a point I cannot stress enough.
You must know your vitamin D levels like you know your height, weight and blood pressure.
