Vitamin D 'key to healthy brain'

Scientists have produced more evidence that vitamin D has an important
role in keeping the brain in good working order in later life.

A study of over 3,000 European men aged 40-79 found those with high
vitamin D levels performed better on memory and information processing
tests.

The University of Manchester team believe vitamin D may protect cells
or key signalling pathways in the brain.

The study features in the Journal of Neurology Neurosurgery and Psychiatry.

It follows research published in January which suggested that high
levels of vitamin D can help stave off the mental decline that can
affect people in old age.

The latest study focused on men from eight cities across Europe.

Their mental agility was assessed using a range of tests, and samples
were taken to measure levels of vitamin D in their blood.

Men with high vitamin D levels performed best, with those who had the
lowest levels - 35 nmoltre or under - registering poor scores.

The researchers said the reason why vitamin D - found in fish and
produced by sun exposure - seemed to aid mental performance was
unclear.
