Low Levels of Vitamin D Linked to Increased Risk of High Blood PressurePrint
A recent study published online in the June 25, 2014 issue of The Lancet: Diabetes and Endocrinology found a causal link between vitamin D deficiencies and the risk of hypertension (high blood pressure).
This large and very interesting study involved more than 140,000 individuals across Europe and North America. The researchers found that for every 10 percent increase in vitamin D levels, there was an 8 percent decrease in the risk of developing high blood pressure.
“The potential to prevent and reduce high blood pressure with vitamin D in place of more expensive medications is certainly something researchers can now usefully explore in greater depth,” said study leader Professor Elina Hypponen of the University of South Australia
Though additional research is needed, these findings suggest that Vitamin D supplementation could be effective in combating some cases of hypertension. Res-Q offers three health supplements with Vitamin D:
