Treat Hypertension Naturally with Vitamin D.

A study conducted by two separate cardiology departments in two cooperating institutions published a study on vitamin D levels and heart health with hypertension or high blood pressure. After measuring several markers among both high and low serum D level subjects, they determined that vitamin D plays a role in reducing cardiovascular inflammation, arterial, and left ventricular heart stiffness among recently diagnosed hypertensive patients. According to the study, if your blood pressure is on the high side, getting plenty of vitamin D through sunshine exposure or supplementation can preserve cardiovascular integrity to help avoid a heart attack.
