Vitamin D is more important than you think!

Vitamin D deficiency has been associated with a range of cardiovascular diseases.


The medical literature indicates that low levels of vitamin D are associated with an increased prevalence of diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and peripheral vascular disease.


Furthermore, vitamin D deficiency has been linked to coronary artery disease, myocardial infarction, heart failure, and stroke, with a significant association with incident death, heart failure, coronary artery disease/myocardial infarction, and stroke.


Specifically, severe vitamin D deficiency has been correlated with deaths due to heart failure and sudden cardiac death.


Additionally, vitamin D deficiency has been identified as a strong independent predictor of all-cause death, and vitamin D supplementation has been associated with a survival benefit in patients with documented deficiency.
