The vitamin deficiency that boosts dementia and Alzheimer’s risk

By now you are likely soaked with vitamin information. Well, here is one to consider: Our aging population is producing larger numbers of people with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Many of you have already experienced this in your families.

Blood levels of vitamin D should be checked in seniors and can be done by any commercial lab. Those with low levels of vitamin D have a higher chance of developing dementia or Alzheimer’s.

Vitamin receptors in the brain are directly involved with memory and brain health. Dr. Bruce West, in his November 2014 issue of “Health Alert,” recommends that we use fermented cod liver oil in the form of Blue Ice Fermented Cod Liver Oil (five capsules daily). Dr. West also recommends coconut oil with cod liver oil daily if you have low levels of vitamin D. He recommends using Omega Virgin Coconut Oil only.
