Vitamin D deficiency has been associated with an increase in all-cause and CVD mortality. 1-4
More than twenty-five studies have explored the relationship between Vitamin D levels and cardiovascular disease (CVD) and most found that lower Vitamin D levels are associated with and increased risk of CVD. Additionally, studies have shown that low Vitamin D levels are associated with hypertension, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, left ventricular hypertrophy, and chronic vascular inflammation- all of which are factors for CVD.1-4
