Vitamin D improves heart and lung

A study of the American of cardiology at the University of Virginia showed that vitamin D significantly improves the health of the heart and blood vessels. In addition, vitamin D supports lung function related to oxygen supply in the muscles.

Previously it was known that vitamin D improves the condition of bones, but the new study, according to its authors, allows to assume that also this vitamin can be very important to strengthen the heart and lungs.

“We found an interesting connection between levels of vitamin D in blood and cardiorespiratory fitness – the ability of the heart and lungs to provide oxygen to the muscles,” – said the researchers.
They were analyzed melon American nurses and medics who regularly held examinations. It was found that vitamin D allow people to take tests on the activity of the heart and lungs.

Participants with the highest vitamin D levels in the blood indicators of cardiorespiratory capacity was 4.3 times better than those who have the concentration of this vitamin was lower. While age and gender did not influence the difference in the tests.
Note that people with higher cardiorespiratory fitness are healthier and live longer.

“Vitamin D in the body is one of the strongest factors of endurance. In addition to strengthening bones and teeth, fish oil and vitamin D lowers the probability of dying from a heart attack. In addition, it protects the brains of people with alcohol dependence from damage,” added the authors.
At the same time, scientists have yet to determine the optimal dose of vitamin D can lead to functional improvement of the heart and lungs without side effects.
