Recent research has highlighted yet again how important vitamin D is. The study reported in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism analysed children, their vitamin D levels and narrowing of their arteries later in life. It showed that those children that had the lowest vitamin D had the highest amount of artery narrowing.
Vitamin D has many other health benefits besides heart health, it is also important in the prevention of cancer.
During the winter months in the UK it is vital to have your levels checked and a high quality supplement used to achieve the optimum level until the sun shines again.
