Vitamin ‘D’ deficiency has now been linked to heart disease and strokes; they are cardiovascular diseases, the number 1 killer globally.
The study found that those with low vitamin ‘D’ levels were:
- 77% more likely to die early
- 45% more likely to develop coronary artery disease
- Twice as likely to develop heart failure
According to those findings vitamin ‘D’ can be effective in the treatment and prevention of heart attacks and strokes.
This could be a major medical breakthrough for millions who are already at risk.
For healthy eating, it is recommended that people over 50 include vitamin ‘D’ supplements in their diet.
