Vitamin D Through Sun Can Cut Risks For Heart Diseases - A New Study Has Found

Update Date: Nov 10, 2015 12:21 PM EST

A weekend jaunt that too in the sun is actually beneficial for you! According to a new research, spending ample time in the sun rays can apparently give you a dose of vitamin D, eliminating the risks of cardiac issues.

Vitamin D is not only profitable in terms of strong bones, but can also eradicate the hazards of heart diseases and strokes. The particular vitamin is obtained through natural ways which involves a sun kissed body in front of sun rays and can also be accumulated through egg yolks, cheese and fish oil. The significance of the highlighted vitamin can allow the body to be free from cardiac related issues as abundant amount of vitamins can not only enhance the bone structure, but also make them robust enough.

Researchers at the Intermountain Medical Centre Heart Institute in Salt Lake City establishes that patients are free from heart related matters and need no further treatments if their vitamin D level is around 15 nanograms per milliliter. Patients whose vitamin D level revolves around the standard amount are mostly safe from cardiac concerns.

According to the professor of medicine Brent Muhlestein, vitamin D levels above 30 were once considered as normal and healthy, but recent researches have maintained 15 as the latest safe level.

Daily Mail quotes, ‘The numbers hadn't been backed up with research until now’.

'Even if any level above 15 is safe, one out of 10 people still have vitamin D levels lower than that.

'This equates to a very large percentage of our population. The best way to determine one's vitamin D level is by getting a blood test.'

The study examined 230,000 people for the course of over three years. These patients were also analyzed on the basis of their former medical history, which involves the chances of heart attacks, strokes, and coronary artery disease, various incidents of heart and kidney failure and even death.

As per Laboratory Equipment, patients present above the standard amount had an elevated risk of cardiovascular disease by 35% as compared to the other groups. Muhlestein claims that the study is fruitful as the new information tells us the benefits heart will receive if their vitamin D level is below 15ng/ml.

The entire research has chipped in and aided patients who are alarmed about their heart health. Spending quality time in the sun can, therefore, shrink the risks of heart diseases and make the patients strong enough in terms of cardiac problems.
