Overcome Vitamin D Deficiency
You must have adequate vitamin D levels for optimum health. If you are already diagnosed with cardiovascular problems, you can prevent complications, and perhaps turn your condition on its tail, by addressing your vitamin D status. Ask your doctor to get a level if it hasn’t been done.
To maintain the optimal level (60–110 nmo/L of 25(OH)) vitamin D, eat lots of vitamin D laden foods (such as sardines, vitamin D fortified milk, cod liver oil, etc.). In addition, get adequate sunshine (20 minutes per day when you can), and take a supplement containing vitamin D3. Dr. Sinatra suggests taking 2,000–4,000 IUs a day if you are healthy, and 5,000–10,000IUs daily if you have a chronic illness, such as metabolic syndrome, osteoporosis, multiple sclerosis, heart disease, and refractory high blood pressure levels.
