With the medical treatment being so expensive many people are turning towards taking better nutrient supplements and this makes it important to know which vitamin and mineral severs for which treatment. Such an example like vitamin A is very effective for sight.
Vitamin D was associated with reduction in blood pressure. But recent studies have denied the interrelation between vitamin D and health outcomes beyond falls, fractures, and possibly respiratory tract infection and also have no effect on either systolic or diastolic blood pressure.
David Agus, MD, a professor of medicine at the University of Southern California comments that “People with higher blood pressure have lower vitamin D, so it was a logical trial to do, but it failed, and this is one of many trials that have failed with this vitamin.”
“Seventy-five percent of Caucasians and 97 percent of African Americans are low in D, so I think and the community thinks we now have to reassess what is normal,” Agus explains.
This study is important because more and more people are taking vitamin D to reduce blood pressure and it has become the most taken vitamin in the country after multivitamins.
This is a good study as it points out to the accuracy of information which doctors are telling to their patients and what the public believes about the benefits of nutrients. He further added that if the doctor tells the person to be on vitamin D, he would want you to say, where is the data that it will benefit me? And ask for the proof of effectiveness.
Vitamins and minerals supplements can provide health benefits, but it is significant to know how each vitamin works for best results.
