The Undeniable Link Between Nutrient Deficiency and Alzheimer’s

Alzheimer’s disease is a debilitating condition that affects millions of individuals around the world. Often associated with old age, this disease causes a range of cognitive issues that make it challenging for individuals to perform their daily activities.

While genetics has been deemed as one of the primary factors that contribute to Alzheimer’s, studies continue to show that nutrient and vitamin/mineral deficiencies–particularly Vitamin D–also lead to the development of Alzheimer’s.

The Link Between Alzheimer’s and Nutrient Deficiency

Research has shown that nutrient deficiency can cause mental health issues, including but not limited to Alzheimer’s. For instance, a recent study found that low levels of Vitamin D are linked to an increased risk of developing Alzheimer’s.

The study analyzed over 1,200 individuals aged 65 and above, and it discovered that those with a Vitamin D deficiency had a 70% higher chance of developing Alzheimer’s than those with sufficient levels of Vitamin D.

The researchers note that vitamin D plays a significant role in the brain’s development and function, including reducing inflammation that destroys brain cells, and regulating neurotransmitters that affect mood and thinking.

Similarly, other studies have linked nutrient and mineral deficiencies to Alzheimer’s.



You Could Prevent Alzheimer’s With Nutrition

Here’s a fact about Alzheimer’s that may surprise you: less than 1% of cases are caused by genetics. That means that over 99% of Alzheimer’s cases are due to an increased presence of risk factors that are related to dementia.

One major risk factor for Alzheimer’s is nutritional deficiency. In fact, recent research out of the University of Wisconsin has shown that 40% of geriatric memory patients were deficient in at least one vitamin that has been linked to brain health.
