Ask About Vitamin D

Vitamin D is well known for its bone-building properties, but can it protect the brain?

A study presented at a recent stroke conference found that people who consumed higher amounts of D had an 11% lower risk of stroke, but the study relied on responses to questionnaires about how frequently people ate certain foods, not more accurate measurements of vitamin D in the blood. A more definitive answer may come from a large clinical trial examining whether taking daily vitamin D supplements reduces risk for stroke and other diseases.
