Does Vitamin D Improve Brain Function?
God, I hope it does (being menopausal and ADD in the same lifetime is uh----a challenge!) Scientific American's article on the subject is fascinating reading ------but here's the problem: if you are cognitively impaired, are you going to be able to remember to take the Vitamin D that will improve your cognitive function (I'm playing devil's advocate here---sometimes my sarcastic sense of humour doesn't fully come across in postings----and my stress level is off the charts today----I will post about it after I settle down a little). As always, check with your doctor (and by the way, Medicare will pay for a Vitamin D test for those over you of that age). I take 5000 IU's daily of Vitamin D3, but your optimal dose needs to be decided by you and your health care provider.
