Vitamin D Boosts Heart Function in Study
This study found that older people with heart problems who took non-calcium-based vitamin D supplements enjoyed an increase in heart pumping function, from a quarter to a third better pumping.
No joke, these are significant results. Am I going to rush out and buy vitamin D supplements? No.
- The study was done on older people. I'm not old.
- The study was done on people who were either on blood pressure medication medication or a Pacemaker. That doesn't apply to me either.
- The study was done using non-calcium-based vitamin D supplements. Most vitamin D supplements are calcium-based.
And even if you figure you could benefit from the vitamin D... seriously. Just go outside for 15 minutes every day, without sunscreen or before putting sunscreen on. Why pay for something your body will make on its own?
