VITAMIN D MAY IMPROVE VASCULAR FUNCTION

Posted: 12.6.2017
Vitamin D is essential to keeping bones strong and may even play a role in staving off depression and cardiovascular disease. Recent findings from a new study of diabetic patients with low blood levels of vitamin D suggest that supplementation may help to improve vascular function and reduce oxidative stress. It is important to take a vitamin D supplement that contains vitamin K to get the most out of each vitamin and to prevent arterial calcification. Vitamin D deficiency is common in the elderly. Check with your doctor or pharmacist regarding your vitamin D blood levels and before beginning any supplementation.
