By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Cardiovascular Week -- Investigators discuss new findings in Obesity, Fitness and Wellness. According to news reporting from Minneapolis, Minnesota, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Vitamin D and calcium have traditionally been viewed in relation to bone health. However, recent research has suggested relations between these nutrients and cardiovascular disease (CVD)."
The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from the University of Minnesota, "Specifically, evidence from both observational studies and clinical trials suggests that vitamin D may be related to lower risk of CVD. The picture for calcium is more complex. Dietary intake of calcium may be associated with lower CVD risk, while calcium supplementation may elevate CVD risk."
According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "In this review, we summarize evidence of these relations, and comment on the recent Institute of Medicine (IOM) recommendations regarding use of vitamin D and calcium supplements."
