Your body must have vitamin D to absorb calcium and promote bone growth.
Too little vitamin D results in fragile bones in adults as well as facilitating normal immune system function. It also helps to prevent memory loss.
While visiting his friends, who owned a health food store, one of the owners asked if they could do a brief exam on me to see what I was deficient in. She was a Chinese Medical Doctor.
I was amazed at what she told me.
I started off with some basic supplements, like Vitamin B, C, E and D. Even with these I noticed a difference within a few days. Over the years I have added to my supplement collection based on health needs and continue to be a big believer in supplements.
The majority of us are in fact Vitamin D deficient depending on where we live since our best source of Vitamin D is the sun.
At my last doctor’s appointment my doctor asked if I take Vitamin D, and I said yes. She asked the amount and told me to double it immediately. Some sources suggest that daily amounts of vitamin D—as high as 2000 IU per day are needed which is what I take now.
Here is a good one with Q10 added, which provides powerful antioxidants.

I’ve also recently read that Vitamin D may play a role in inflammation in the brain and this inflammation could be part of why people lose memory. The article I read conclude that for this, among many other reasons, taking supplemental vitamin D to prevent memory loss is important.
CoQ-10 is a naturally-occurring, fat-soluble nutrient needed for cellular energy production and is especially important for the high energy needs of your heart. It also provides powerful antioxidants to protect cells from free radicals.
