Importance of Vitamin D in the prevention and treatment of aging-related diseases reaffirmed.

Reviewing evidence that suggests an association between vitamin D deficiency and chronic diseases associated with aging such as cognitive decline, depression, osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes and cancer, researchers from Loyola University (Illinois, USA) reaffirm the pivotal role of Vitamin D to prevent and treat aging-related diseases.  Sue Penckofer and colleagues write that: “current evidence regarding the role that vitamin D may play in diseases associated with aging and addresses the need for well-designed randomized trials to examine its benefit on health outcomes in the older adult.”
