You cut your risk of cardiovascular events by normalizing your vitamin-D level. A new study has found that people who has low vitamin-D levels but managed to normalize their levels were significantly less likely to develop cardiovascular events after six years of follow-up. The results were presented at the American College of Cardiology (ACC) 2010.
The investigators looked at the vitamin-D levels of 9,491 subjects with known vitamin-D deficiency and their subsequent rates of death, cardiovascular disease, stroke and renal failure.
After a mean of one-year of follow-up, those who had normalized their vitamin-D levels were 30% less likely to die from cardiovascular disease than those who remained vitamin-D deficient.
What is the optimal level of Vitamin-D?
A poster presented by Muhlestein and colleagues suggested that a vitamin D level greater than 43ng/ml will decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease. His study was based on analyzing the vitamin D level and cardiovascular events among 31,000 patients.
In the United States, the prevalence of inadequate vitamin B6 intake for adults older than 50 years is about 20% for men and 40% for women.
