Regular exercise and Vitamin D levels synergistically found to keep cardiovascular diseases at bay, study reveals
-A recent study, conducted at John Hopkins University, was focused on evaluating the impact of exercise and vitamin D together on an individual’s heart health.
-The study reviewed findings from different studies and health records that included about 10,000 American adults aged around 50 years.
-The study revealed that exercise levels positively corresponded to vitamin D levels, suggesting that the more one exercised the higher their Vitamin D levels seemed. The study also suggested that the most active participants with the highest vitamin D levels had the lowest risk for cardiovascular disease.
-Over the 19 years of research, it was seen that people who met both the recommended activity levels and had vitamin D levels above 20 nanograms per milliliter experienced a 23 % lesser chances of having an adverse cardiovascular event compared to those who had poor physical activity and were deficient in Vitamin D.
-Findings were published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism
