New Study: Low Vitamin D Linked to Increased Risk of Heart Health Issues

wp_featuredimage_hearthealth01

In an important new study, researchers found a strong statistical correlation between having low levels of vitamin D and an increased risk of serious heart health issues.

The researchers found that as vitamin D levels decreased, risk of serious heart health issues increased.

The study is the largest of its kind to date. It was based upon over 10,000 people without prior history of heart health issues, with follow-up examinations over the last 29 years. This study also included meta-analyses of 35 other studies, and adds the latest evidence to the growing body of research suggesting the crucial importance of vitamin D to heart health.

This new study found that low levels of vitamin D, compared to optimal levels of vitamin D, were linked to 40% higher risk of serious heart health issues, and 81% higher risk of death from heart health issues.

This study thus shows once again the importance of having your micronutrient status tested by your doctor or healthcare provider, since even borderline deficiencies can have such serious health consequences.

This study, and the growing evidence that many people need more vitamin D, also shows why many doctors and health professionals are raising their vitamin D recommendations—many doctors now recommend a daily intake of at least 2,000 I.U. of vitamin D3.

The crucial importance of vitamin D to heart health is one of the many reasons Oxylent daily multivitamin drink mixes contain more vitamin D than most daily multivitamins!
