The new research says that high dosage of Vitamin D can help lowering the arterial stiffness, which is a crucial risk factor for the diseases and deaths related to cardiovascular difficulties found among the young adults with vitamin-deficient obesity.
According to the records, cardiovascular diseases are the major reasons of deaths all over the world including approximately 17.7 million deaths just in 2015 with representing 31 percent deaths globally.
Lack of Vitamin D and stiffness of artery walls may be significantly contributors, according to a cardiologist and geneticist, Yanbin Dong from the Augusta University in the United States. The study proved that the dosage of 4000 international units (IUs), which is more than currently recommended daily 600 IUs dosage for most of the children and adults, is now considered as the most reduced arterial stiffness, while being also the fastest as 10.4 percent in just four months.
Research resident, Dr. Anas Raed from the MCG Department of Medicine and leading author of the study said in a statement that, “It significantly and rapidly reduced stiffness. When your arteries are stiffer, you have higher pulse wave velocity, which increases your risk of cardio metabolic disease in the future. We think maybe in the future, when you go to your physician, he or she might check your arterial stiffness as another indicator of how healthy you are.”
Foods including milk and milk products such as yogurt and cheese, fatty fish such as sardines and mackerel, greens like collards and kale and also fortified cereals are the best source of the vitamin. According researchers, a supplement of vitamin D is the safest and inexpensive option for the most people.
However, now the dose is considered as the highest and safest upper dosage sod vitamin D by the Institute of Medicine (IOM). The research has been released in the PLOS ONE journal.
