Researchers say they have marked the smallest amount of vitamin D needed for heart health.
Previous research has shown that vitamin D deficiency increases the risk of heart disease, heart attack, and stroke. However, the amount of intake deficiency associated with that risk is not clearly known before.
Quoted from WebMD, vitamin D levels above 15 nanograms / milliliter (ng / ml) good for heart health, according to a team from the Intermountain Medical Center Heart Institute in Salt Lake City.
Study leader Dr J Brent Muhlestein said, “Although vitamin D above 30 ng / ml is traditionally regarded as normal, some researchers have proposed that the amount of any amount above 15 ng / ml is a safe amount. But the numbers were not supported by the data up to now. “
The director together in cardiovascular research continued, “Even if the numbers above 15 is considered safe, one of 10 people still had vitamin D levels less than that. This is equivalent to a large percentage of our population. “Dr. J Brent Muhlestein then added,” The best way to determine a person’s vitamin D levels is through a blood test. “
The study involved 230,000 people for 3 years, and the results will be presented this week at the annual meeting of the American Heart Association in the city of Orlando, Florida.
For the record, the research presented at a meeting of this kind usually seen as the initial findings until later published in the medical journal after peer review of (peer review).
The human body naturally produces vitamin D when exposed to sunlight. This vitamin is also found in foods such as fish, fish liver oil, egg yolks, and a number of dairy products and grains. According to the researchers, vitamin D supplements are also a source selection.
This study reveals an explanation and a new direction in which the patient can receive maximum benefit from supplemental vitamin D.
