The risk of vitamin D deficiency

The risk of vitamin D deficiency
Low levels of vitamin D in the body have a great risk for heart attack, heart failure and stroke according to research results. Risk associated with heart disease occurs mainly in people who suffer from high blood pressure. The study states of vitamin D may protect against heart disease. 
Men are advised to consume more vitamin D which is useful for reducing the chances of developing heart disease or stroke. A study in the United States (USA) explains, those who lack vitamin D are usually more susceptible to disease. 
The study, followed by 119 thousand adults over the past two decades to find as many as 16 percent of that number can be protected from heart disease and stroke, if they at least consume 600 International Units (IU) of Vitamin D per day, as had been suggested at this time, according to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. 
"These observations indicate that high intake of vitamin D was associated with lower risk of cardiovascular disease in men but not women," said Qi Sun, chief researcher at the Harvard School of Public Health, told The Straits Times. However, Mr. Sun and other authors said the findings do not prove that vitamin D found in fish, eggs, milk and cod liver oil may reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke in men. 
"The evidence is not enough to make a strong recommendation," added Mr. Sun. Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium and is believed to be very important for bone health, but some research shows vitamin D also has other benefits. At the age of adults are deficient in vitamin D can cause osteoporosis. 
The team of researchers led by Dr. Thomas Wang of Harvard Medical School in Boston which involved 1739 people with an average age of 59 years which followed the development of health for five years by taking their blood samples to see the levels of vitamin D. 
Those who have blood levels of vitamin D in low, 60% of whom had a high risk of heart attack, heart failure and stroke compared with those who had vitamin D levels even higher is known to have high risk factors such as diabetes heart attack , high cholesterol and high blood pressure. 
The risk of heart attack, heart failure or stroke doubled in those who have high blood pressure (hypertension) and vitamin D deficiency, researchers said. The findings published in a bulletin published by the union of the United States cardiologist. Wang said the findings are promising but still too early to say that the additional intake of vitamin D will lower the risk of heart attack, heart failure and stroke and was too hasty when advocating for the patients mentioned above to receive an additional intake of vitamin D for the purpose mentioned above. 
"Vitamin D deficiency is a common condition that occurs mainly in countries that do not receive enough sunlight during the winter." "Actually quite justifiable if the deficiency of vitamin D improve the situation by changing the diet containing an additional intake of vitamin D," said Wang. 
The human body makes vitamin D when skin is exposed to sunlight exposure. Not many foods that contain lots of vitamin D. Vitamin D is found in salmon meat, and milk is generally given an additional element of vitamin D. 
Experts say exposure exposed for 10 to 15 minutes three times a week is enough to produce vitamin D the body needs. "There are a lot of literature stating that vitamin D is often doing the work on the heart and major blood vessels, and often also found that vitamin D deficiency disangkut-pautkan with no abnormal development of the heart." 
The results of previous studies also suggested that receive an additional intake of vitamin D may protect from getting some types of cancer as well as multiple sclerosis. People who participate as a volunteer in the study were those who participated in volunteers from the Framingham heart health research center in Massachusetts who have no family history of heart disease and all white.
