Table of Contents

Vitamin D may have multiple effects on the nervous system and its deficiency can represent a possible risk factor for the development of many neurological diseases. Recent studies are also trying to clarify the different effects of vitamin D supplementation over the course of progressive neurological diseases.
In this narrative review, we summarise vitamin D chemistry, metabolism, mechanisms of action, and the recommended daily intake.
The role of vitamin D on gene transcription and the immune response is also reviewed. Finally, we discuss the scientific evidence that links low 25-hydroxyvitamin D concentrations to the onset and progression of severe neurological diseases, such as

  • multiple sclerosis,
  • Parkinson’s disease,
  • Alzheimer’s disease,
  • migraine,
  • diabetic neuropathy and
  • amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

Completed and ongoing clinical trials on vitamin D supplementation in neurological diseases are listed.

Clinical interventions have shown that Vitamin D can prevent, treat, and even cure Multiple Sclerosis, at a tiny fraction of the cost of the drugs now used to treat it, and without side effects.

Summary: lack of consensus on how much to prevent, treat, or cure MS.
