Vitamin D Protects Your Heart
by Alex St Clair
soothes heart-damaging inflammation and strengthens your heart muscle.

Vitamin D is so valuable to you that your body has its own production line. Not only
do you make this hormone-like nutrient in your skin, you store any excess in your
fat and muscle cells. What you make in the sunshine you save for a rainy day. It's
like a power-supply with a battery backup. Nature intended we should never run out.
But we have outsmarted her in a hundred different ways. Some of us can now boast
that sunlight never shines directly on our unprotected skin.

Is that so smart for your heart? Is your vitamin D tank running on empty? Do your
heart a big favour. Take a daily dose of vitamin D, preferably cholecalciferol a.k.a.
vitamin D3 - that's exactly what your own skin produces from sunlight.

For first prize, and greatest health benefit, find out what dose you need to raise your
personal vitamin D reserves to optimum level. Otherwise, for an adult in good health,
a daily winter-time dose of 2000 International Units (or 50 micrograms) of vitamin
D3 will help your heart a great deal, even though that is probably far short of your
ideal dose. But a hugely excessive vitamin D dosage can harm you, so we must err
on the side of caution.

Besides protecting your heart, vitamin D has many other health benefits. In fact,
Vitamin D can save your life. Optimum levels of vitamin D have been shown to
reduce death from all causes. It costs only a few cents for an effective vitamin D
dose - or nothing at all if you take from the sun. Yet, if you had to buy a drug with
half the health benefits of vitamin D, it would cost so much that only the wealthiest
could afford it. It would be worth every cent.

So don't be caught dead without it.

Here's how to calculate your ideal

Several research studies have
reported that people who are vitamin
D deficient are more than twice as
likely to suffer from cardiovascular
diseases of all kinds, including heart
attacks. We often read statements
like this in the popular press. But
perhaps the language of statistics
blunts the message.

Vitamin D protects your heart. It
helps to ensure your heart's blood
supply by nurturing your blood
vessels. It calms high blood pressure.
It fights insulin resistance and
discourages diabetes. Vitamin D
