  • Vitamin D and Alzheimer’s Disease: Could Deficiency Increase Your Risk?

    You know, we’ve explored, several times now, the relationship between vitamin D levels and risks for severe health complications, including dementia. Notably, my colleague Dr. Dale Bredesen has written and researched much on this topic, particularly with regard to the relationship between vitamin D levels and Alzheimer’s risk. In fact, Dr. Bredesen even includes vitamin D supplementation in his protocol for treating Alzheimer’s and dementia. Well, a new study in the journal Neurology explores the scientific fact behind this relationship between vitamin D, and dementia and Alzheimer’s.

It made the front page of Bild, Europe’s largest daily newspaper, just beneath their update about the Germanwings crash.

It appeared in glossy print, most recently in the June issue of Shape magazine (“Why You Must Eat Chocolate Daily,” page 128).

  • The Glymphatic System: Enhancing Performance with Optimal Sleep

    Perhaps by now, you’ve heard of the glymphatic system. Personally, I’ve seen it be a subject both popular media and medical journals are devoting more and more attention to. But, what exactly is the glymphatic system? This may come as a bit of a surprise to learn, but it’s your brain’s other circulatory system. Yes, your brain has a second circulatory system!
