Control of cardiovascular disease with vitamin D3
Consuming foods containing vitamin D3 strengthens the respiratory system and heart function, and this vitamin is found in dairy products and sunlight. This theory has been proven by researchers investigating methods of strengthening the cardiovascular system. Studies by Ohio University researchers show that vitamin D3 plays a role in preventing and improving cardiovascular system damage.
According to the report of IRNA scientific news group from the Medical Science news site on Thursday, vitamin D3 is produced in the body as a result of the skin being exposed to sunlight. Various studies show the benefits of this vitamin to prevent various diseases including diabetes, blood pressure, MS and mental illnesses. New research by Ohio University researchers shows the role of this vitamin in preventing cardiovascular damage and restoring damage to this system.
Recent clinical studies show that many heart attack patients are deficient in vitamin D, although this finding does not mean that vitamin D deficiency causes heart attack, but increases its risk.
Using biosensors, researchers investigated the role of vitamin D3 in the function and regeneration of the cardiovascular system. The results show that vitamin D3 is a strong stimulator of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is a main messenger molecule in regulating blood flow and preventing clot formation. On the other hand, this vitamin significantly reduces oxidative stress.
Sunlight is the most important source of vitamin D. Foods such as egg yolks, fish, mushrooms, cheeses, milk, beans, fish oil, orange juice and caviar contain a lot of vitamin D. In addition, 15 minutes of walking in the afternoon, when the intensity of sunlight is less, is recommended to supply vitamin D to the body.
The results of this study have been published in the journal Nanomedicine.
