Benefits of vitamin D for cancer and cardiovascular diseases

Evidence

Another clear example is found in a study carried out with 20,000 patients from the United States Veterans Health Administration. Participants were followed from 1999 to 2018 and had baseline values of 25 (OH) D <50 nmol / L (20 ng / ml).

‘Using some vitamin D supplements to increase their serum 25 (OH) D level, he found that those who reached a level of> 75 nmol / L (30 ng / ml) had a 30% lower risk of myocardial infarction in comparison with those who did not, “they state from the” Orthomolecular Medicine News Service. “

In addition, the researchers found that the all-cause mortality rate was 40% lower for those participants who achieved serum vitamin D levels of 25 (OH) D> 50 nmol / L (20 ng / ml), compared to those who did not reach it.

With all this, there is important evidence that high levels of vitamin D in the body help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. All this goes hand in hand with the statement of Dr. Michael F. Holick, a specialist in vitamin D, who assures that having high levels of this nutrient reduces the risk of developing a large number of diseases.
