Vitamin D Can Mend a Broken Heart
New research reveals microscopic medicinal effect the sunshine vitamin can have on sick cells

First, the bad news.

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the No. 1 cause of death worldwide.

The World Health Organization estimates that 17.9 million deaths per year are due to CVD—31 percent of all deaths. In the United States, the Centers for Disease Control attributed 647,000 deaths to CVD in 2019, accounting for 1 in 4 deaths—one every 37 seconds.

The major risk factors for CVD are high blood pressure, high LDL cholesterol, and smoking. Almost half of all Americans have at least one of these risk factors.

Now the good news.

Exciting new discoveries indicate that vitamin D can protect against CVD, and, quite amazingly, even reverse the damage to diseased cardiovascular tissue.

Preventing a Possible Second Deadlier Wave of COVID-19 in Fall

Maintaining adequate vitamin D to fuel an effective immune response can be as simple as getting some sunshine

Viral infections occur in a predictable seasonal pattern increasing in prevalence during the colder months of the year. In fact, a low-grade viral infection is commonly referred to as a “cold” because of when it occurs.

What environmental factor varies with the seasons and affects our biology to such an extent that it influences our susceptibility to viral infection? The answer is sunshine, or more accurately, the predictable seasonal peaks and troughs of skin-produced, solar-generated vitamin D.

Getting Enough Vitamin D Could Save Your Life

By William F. Supple, Jr., Ph. D.

Our ancestors evolved under the rays of the equatorial sun. Skin produces Vitamin D (VitD) when exposed to specific frequencies of ultraviolet light. Our bodies advantageously incorporated this readily available, natural resource into many aspects of growth, development and function. As man migrated away from the sun, skin mutated thereby reducing melanin content in an attempt to maximize essential VitD production. Over the past half-century, effective technologies to eliminate all cutaneously-generated VitD synthesis have been developed as part of a systematic vilification of the sun in regard to its contribution to general health. Consequently, the incidence of the diseases that plague the developed world (cancers, cardiovascular diseases, autoimmune diseases) are at the highest levels ever, with no ceiling in sight.
