The Benefits of Vitamin D and E

Research shows why you need more vitamin D and E this summer. “Consuming more vitamin E through the diet appears to be associated with a lower risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, according to a report in the July issue of Archives of Neurology, one of the JAMA/Archives journals. A report in yesterday shows new testing has also found that higher levels of vitamin D also seem to protect against these memory-robbing diseases.”

The easiest way to get vitamin D would be to take a ten minute walk on a sunny afternoon (be sure to stay hydrated). Other sources of vitamin D include fish and fortified milk. Vitamin E can be found in foods such as margarine, sunflower oil, butter, cooking fat, soybean oil and mayonnaise.
