If you were to dedicate your life to reading through the pallets of research about Vitamin D, you'd likely come to the same conclusion as the researchers who've done that research:
Vitamin D is crucial for many, many aspects of your health.
While Vitamin D is not a panacea for all ailments, it does influence the function of nearly every cell in the body. Researchers have discovered that nearly every cell in the body has Vitamin D receptors. From defending the body against invaders to growing strong bones, from decreasing the growth of abnormal cells to controlling dangerous inflammation, Vitamin D is instrumental in maintaining health.
What about Heart Disease?
Heart Disease (also called Cardiovascular Disease) is the leading disease killer worldwide. A study published in early December 2021 shows that being low in Vitamin D can put you at a higher risk of developing high blood pressure and heart disease.
This study found that those that are the most deficient in Vitamin D have more than double the risk of developing heart disease. Want to see the study? Click HERE.
In 2016 a study was published in the Journal of the American Academy of Cardiology that found that Vitamin D improved heart function in patients with chronic heart failure. In this study, they gave 229 patients that met the criteria of having both heart failure and Vitamin D deficiency a daily dosage of 4000 IU Vitamin D for one year. The researchers observed that the intervention "was associated with a significant improvement in cardiac function. "
