Can vitamin D lower the risk of heart disease, as some studies suggest?
Researchers in New Zealand gave roughly 5,100 people aged 50 to 84 either a placebo or vitamin D (an initial dose of 200,000 IU followed by monthly doses of 100,000 IU).
After three years, the vitamin D takers had no lower risk of a heart attack, stroke, or other cardiovascular event. And it didn’t matter if the people entered the study with low vitamin D blood levels (below 20 ng/mL) or not.
