Do you need to take vitamins?

We are no experts. But according to our research, we have found some interesting information about the need for vitamins for people with food intolerances and for the prevention of dementia.

Vitamin KingA clinical trial states that daily supplements of B vitamins may slow the decline in mental function in people with mild cognitive impairment.

A daily combination of folic acid and vitamins B6 and B12 was associated with a 30% reduction in levels of the amino acid homo-cysteine, and improvements in a range of mental tests, including global cognition and episodic memory.

Wasting in the brain, or atrophy, is a common symptom of mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and can be an early warning to signs of dementia.

Children and adolescents suffering from celiac disease may be at risk of weak bones, and supplements of vitamins D and K may help. Almost half of the children in the study with celiac disease – an intolerance to gluten in wheat,  rye and barley – had suboptimal levels of vitamin D and about one quarter had suboptimal vitamin K levels.

So, if you don’t want to lose your mind, or if certain foods don’t agree with you. Read up more about vitamins and what they can do for you.
