Heart Disease Not
Prevented with Calcium and Vitamin D
March 13, 2010
is believed that calcium and vitamin D may play a part in heart disease
prevention. However, there are few studies done to actually verify this
Researchers Wang, Manson, Song and Sesso analyzed existing studies done
on calcium and vitamin D to see if there is any indication of
cardiovascular protection from these two common supplements taken by
millions of people. Despite this detailed analysis, the conclusion is
made somewhat unclear because most of the existing studies were small
and not originally designed to look at cardiovascular risks.
The bottom line? Calcium supplements do not reduce the risk of disease
of the heart. Vitamin D at moderately high dose of 1,000 IU daily might
help cut the risk down.
