Everyone needs vitamin D to be healthy and maintain strong bones, but a new study has found that it may also protect against stroke. In the study, 21,000 people aged 45 and older answered a food questionnaire. According to the findings, presented at the American Stroke Association's International Stroke Conference, there was an 11 percent reduction in stroke among those who consumed the most vitamin D.
Vitamin D is found in fatty fish like salmon and tuna and is added to other foods, including milk, breakfast cereals, and some brands of orange juice and yogurt. Check the label to find out.
People also get vitamin D from the sun and can do so with very little exposure-10 minutes a day on arms and legs is adequate during most of the year. Too much vitamin D is usually the result of over-using a dietary supplement. As with all supplements and medicines, tell your doctor if you take vitamin D.
