Vitamin D deficiency is associated with many diseases. So, is there a relationship with dementia?
Researchers from Canada and England sought an answer to this question.
About 12,000 participants in the study were observed for 10 years.
As a result of the study, people who took vitamin D supplements were 40 percent less likely to have dementia.
Participants with a mean age of 71 years were not diagnosed with dementia when enrolled in the study.
As a result of the research, it was determined that 2,696 of the participants developed dementia within 10 years.
It turned out that 2,177 people in this group had never taken vitamin D supplements before they were diagnosed with dementia, while 679 took very little supplementation.
