Vitamin D reduces the risk of heart attack
According to an Australian study conducted over a six-year period with the participation of 21,000 individuals aged 60-84, it was found that vitamin D supplementation can potentially reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases among people above 60 years old. The effectiveness of the supplement is further enhanced when combined with heart health medications.
This research reveals that those who regularly took vitamin D experienced a 19% lower incidence of heart attacks compared to the placebo group. These findings highlight the potential benefits and importance of incorporating vitamin D into the health regimen of older individuals, potentially helping to safeguard against cardiovascular conditions.
