Overview Cardiovascular and vitamin D

There are many indications that vitamin D can both PREVENT and TREAT many cardiovascular problems

  • How much vitamin D will PREVENT which cardiovascular problems under which situations
    Guess as of Nov 2011: 2,000 to 4,000 IU
  • How much vitamin D will TREAT which cardiovascular problems under which situations
    Guess as of Nov 2011 > 10,000 IU
  • As with many other diseases, VitaminDWiki expects that there will be a at least a 4X range of vitamin D due to:
    • 4X range in the response in the vitamin D blood level for the same IU dose - for healthy, non-obese, people
  • Also expect that co-factors such as Magnesium and Vitamin K2 (see below) will prove to be very important

INTERVENTION Clinical Trials for (heart OR cardiovascular) and "vitamin D" 296 as of Aug 2014

Intervention = give vitamin D and see what happens usually testing vitamin D vs placebo

The majority of these intervention trials are for TREATMENT, rather than prevention

We anticipate that many of the trials will terminate sooner than planned when they find so many people dying without vitamin D
