Support healthy brain aging with vitamins and DHA
The brain burns a high proportion of the body’s nutrients and needs a constant supply to keep neural pathways healthy; a key in slowing or preventing cognitive problems. A recent study in Neurology found a link between low levels of vitamin D and increasing chances of dementia. Vitamins such as A and C, minerals, and omega-3 fatty acids such as DHA all play a vital role in neuronal health, yet older adults tend to get less of these micronutrients as they age. Doctors in this study said malnourishment is linked to the process of developing Alzheimer’s disease (AD), the most prevalent dementia worldwide, and that the best way to delay the onset of AD is to maintain neuronal health by ensuring an adequate supply of these important micronutrients.
