Low vitamin D linked to increased risk of cognitive decline

Vitamin D Levels and the Risk of Cognitive Decline in Chinese Elderly People:
the Chinese Longitudinal Healthy Longevity Survey.

J Gerontol A Biol Sci Med Sci. 2016 Oct;71(10):1363-8.

    BACKGROUND: Vitamin D has a neuroprotective function, potentially important for the prevention of cognitive decline. Prospective studies from Western countries support an association between lower vitamin D level and future cognitive decline in elderly people. No prospective study has examined this association in Asia.

    METHODS: This community-based ...

Vitamin D reduces relapse rate in RRMS treated with Tysabri

Vitamin D supplementation reduces relapse rate in relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis patients treated with natalizumab.
Mult Scler Relat Disord. 2016 Nov;10:169-173.

    BACKGROUND: Vitamin D insufficiency is common among multiple sclerosis patients, and hypovitaminosis D has been associated with multiple sclerosis (MS) risk and disease activity.

    OBJECTIVE: To investigate how recommendations on vitamin D3 supplements affect 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) levels in patients with relapsing-remitting MS (RRMS) and to examine the clinical effects associated with changes in 25(OH)D ...

Low vitamin D predicts early conversion to SPMS

A low vitamin D status at diagnosis is associated with an early conversion to secondary progressive multiple sclerosis.
J Steroid Biochem Mol Biol. 2016 Nov;164:254-257.

    Low circulating 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) levels have been associated with an increased risk of relapses in relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS), but an association with disability progression is uncertain. Lower 25(OH)D levels are found in secondary progressive MS (SPMS) when compared to RRMS. We hypothesized that a poor vitamin D ...

Magnesium Supplementation in Vitamin D Deficiency

Magnesium Supplementation in Vitamin D Deficiency.
Am J Ther. 2017 May 3.

    BACKGROUND: Vitamin D and magnesium (Mg) are some of the most studied topics in medicine with enormous implications for human health and disease. Majority of the adults are deficient in both vitamin D and magnesium but continue to go unrecognized by many health care professionals.

    AREAS OF UNCERTAINTY: Mg and vitamin D are used by all the organs in the body, and their ...

RE PLANT BASED FATTY ACIDS MAY LOWER RISK OF M.S

HI Friends please read
https://overcomingms.org/plant-based-fa ... isk-of-ms/

A recent study reported at ECTRIMS (European Committee for Treatment and Research in MS) in Barcelona reports that higher intake of plant-based essential fatty acids, such as alpha linolenic acid in flaxseed oil, may reduce the risk of developing Multiple Sclerosis.

Examining data from the Nurses Health Study on nearly 180,000 nurses in the US, investigators found that individuals who consumed the ...

2017 abstract: Multiple Deficiencies in Elder Care Residents

Multiple Micronutrient Deficiencies Exist in Aged-care Residents, with Serum Zinc, not Iron, Being a Major Predictor of Anemia
http://www.fasebj.org/content/31/1_Supp ... 60.2.short

Abstract

Background Anemia is a significant comorbidity in older adults with a complex etiology that is not fully attributable to iron deficiency. Other micronutrient and non-nutritional health-related associations have also been implicated as possible causal factors.

Objective To examine the relations of serum iron, zinc, selenium and vitamin ...

2016 abstract: MS brain volume loss with low serum vit A

Serum Retinol Levels are Associated with Brain Volume Loss in Patients with Multiple Sclerosis
http://journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/10 ... 6686261%20

Background: Brain atrophy has been recognised as an endpoint of irreversible tissue loss that is closely associated with disability in patient with multiple sclerosis (MS). Although predicting future brain volume loss is important, studies have been shown only few biomarkers that can predict brain volume loss (BVL).

Objective: The aim of this ...

2007 study: Zinc vs gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria

Human Peptidoglycan Recognition Proteins Require Zinc to Kill Both Gram-Positive and Gram-Negative Bacteria, and Are Synergistic with Antibacterial Peptides
http://www.jimmunol.org/content/178/5/3116.short
Mammals have four peptidoglycan recognition proteins (PGRPs or PGLYRPs), which are secreted innate immunity pattern recognition molecules with effector functions. In this study, we demonstrate that human PGLYRP-1, PGLYRP-3, PGLYRP-4, and PGLYRP-3:4 have Zn2+-dependent bactericidal activity against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria at physiologic Zn2+ concentrations found in serum, ...
