Vitamin D & Your Heart

Researchers studied 1739 participants with a mean age of 59 years old, with no previous history of cardiovascular disease. At the beginning of the study, researchers recorded the participants levels of vitamin D. During follow up, approximately five years later, 120 individuals had already developed their first cardiovascular incidents.*

Researchers found that those with vitamin D (25(OH)D) lower than 15ng/mL were 62% more likely to develop cardiovascular events than those people with higher levels of vitamin D. They also discovered that individuals with both low vitamin D and high blood pressure doubled that risk.

Vitamin D is available in Viteyes® Multivitamin Companion and Viteyes® Complete as part of your daily multivitamin.
