The Power Of Vitamin D

New research suggests a Vitamin D deficiency could increase a person's risk of developing cardiovascular disease.

Researchers from the mid-America Heart Institute in Missouri found
patients with low Vitamin D levels were twice as likely to have a heart
attack or stroke within the next five years compared to those with
higher levels.

It's concerning news considering half of American adults and about
30% of children under 18 are considered to have low Vitamin D
levels.

Researchers say low Vitamin D levels can predispose people to a
thickening of the heart and blood vessels and alter the hormone levels
that can increase the risk of diabetes.

Vitamin D can be boosted by supplements, sunlight exposure and eating food rich in Vitamin D like salmon and milk.
