Boosting vitamin D levels could prevent eyesight from deteriorating
Do take note of the fact Levels of amyloid beta, a toxic protein linked to Alzheimer's disease and known to be a hallmark of ageing, were also reduced in the study

I can't understand why, when we know the ability to create the natural hormones, vitamin D3 and Melatonin, decline as we age and are only 25% of the amounts we would have produced at age 25yrs, it isn't standard practice to make up that difference progressively as we age?

We know a healthy young adult getting full body non burning uvb exposure readily creates over 10,000iu in a relatively short time and someone age 75 doing the same will only create a fraction of that (and is less likely to expose as much skin for as long or as regularly).
So why not automatically make up the shortfall?

If we want to protect mitochondria we also have to ensure Time Release melatonin is available at the appropriate time.
It's not as if either 5000iu vitamin d3 in oil based gel caps (preferably in MCT oil) or Time Release Melatonin are expensive. Both are readily at discount prices.
At this time of economic hardship we should be trying to make access to this important information as readily available as possible without any unnecessary obstacles.

I'm learning there are those that care and believe that nutrients and the food we eat matter in our health. Then there is the majority of those who are brain-washed into believing having health insurance and a primary care physician is all they need for health.

Some are proactive in their health and others are passive.
