"Risk of heart failure is 12 times more likely in those with vitamin D deficiency"

According to research out of the Federal University of Pernambuco in Brazil, the risk of heart failure is 12 times more likely in elderly vitamin D deficient subjects than in those with adequate levels. In fact, within the confines of the study vitamin D deficiency presented a higher risk for heart failure than obesity or heart arrhythmia.

N.B. Deficient levels of vitamin D were defined as fewer than 30 nanomoles per litre (nmol/L). Insufficient levels were 30 to 49 nmol/L and adequate levels were 50  nmol/L or higher.

Unfortunately, these lifesaving facts are ignored but at what cost with holidays are upon us!!

How many future holidays would you like to spend with your loved ones?
  • A Swedish study quoted in an article from Baptist Health South Florida observed that “in comparison to the two weeks before and after Christmas, heart-attack risks were 37 percent higher on Christmas Eve, 20 percent higher on New Year's Day, and 25 percent higher on Christmas Day.
  • Dr. Michael Greger: "Most deaths in the U.S. are preventable and related to nutrition". (Dr, Greger elaborate, unfortunately many assume it's going to happen to someone else!)😢

The study was observational and involved 137 elderly Brazilian cardiac outpatients, while the study was relatively small the results are supported by existing literature and are consistent with previous study findings.

First author Catarina Magalhaes Porto concluded:

"The risk of heart failure was present in more than half of the elderly and was strongly associated with vitamin D deficiency and its consequences for increased risk of heart failure suggest a need of dosage recommendations for this vitamin, especially in primary healthcare services."

The findings of this latest study present more evidence of the importance of adequate vitamin D levels in the elderly for cardiovascular benefits as well as bone health.

Women vitamin D deficient have a 43% higher risk of developing MS

Women with low levels of vitamin D are nearly 50% more likely to develop multiple sclerosis than those who get enough, according to a new study published in Neurology. This strengthens findings of existing research showing a link between vitamin D status and MS.

Around 100,000 people in Britain have MS which normally gets diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 40. It is a condition which affects the brain and spinal cord, with symptoms including problems with vision, arm or leg movement, sensation or balance. In worst case scenarios MS can leave people wheelchair-bound by severely damaging their muscles.

It is believed the 'sunshine vitamin' may help to suppress immune cells that attack the body to cause MS

Researchers at Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health in Boston examined blood samples from a large number of women - blood samples from more than 800,000 women in Finland were used, taken originally as part of prenatal testing.

A total of 1,092 women were diagnosed with MS on average 9 years after giving blood samples. They were compared to 2,123 women who did not develop the disease.

Of the women who developed MS, 58% had deficient levels of vitamin D, compared to 52% of the women who did not develop the disease. Researchers found that with each 50 nmol/L increase in vitamin D levels in the blood, the risk of developing MS later in life decreased by 39%.

Those deficient in vitamin D had a 43% higher chance of getting MS than women with adequate levels. The risk was 27% higher for those deficient in vitamin D as compared with those with just insufficient levels.

Vitamin D - a potential life saver?

Thursday November 

A new study, published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, is suggesting that Vitamin D could soon be used to treat deadly respiratory viruses. The research showed that elderly patients living in long term care facilities who had high doses of vitamin D were 40% less likely to develop lung infections.

Vitamin D is thought to help reinforce the first line of defence

Acute respiratory diseases such as pneumonia, bronchitis, and influenza (flu) are known to have higher death rates among older people due to their weakened immune system. While not a treatment, vitamin D is thought to help reinforce the first line of defence as we age to prevent respiratory infections.

Scientists have said the findings could help to slash cases of respiratory illness among the elderly, particularly so among care-home based adults where the disease appears to be most deadly. 

A potentially life-saving discovery

Lead researcher Adit Ginde, from the University of Colorado, said:

'This is a potentially life-saving discoveryThere is very little in a doctor's arsenal to battle the infections as antibiotics often don't work against viruses as they have different growth mechanisms to bacterial infections. But vitamin D seems able to potentially prevent these infections'.

High doses of vitamin D shown to reduce likelihood of lung infections

Over the course of a year researchers looked at vitamin D's impact on respiratory infections in 107 nursing home residents with an average age of 84. Of those, 55 received high doses of vitamin D while the others were given much lower doses.

Scientists found the group receiving higher doses had a 40% reduction in cases of acute respiratory infections.
Mr Ginde said:

'After studying these patients for a year, we found a 40 percent reduction in acute respiratory illness among those who took higher doses of vitamin DVitamin D can improve the immune system's ability to fight infections because it bolsters the first line of defense of the immune system.'

Remember, not all supplements are created equal!

Problem, most commercial vitamin D sold on the market are toxic☠️! Did you know this?
One Ex Biochemist for Eli Lilly and Company wrote in his Book, Over-the-counter natural-cures: "One of the most toxic vitamins is synthetic vitamin D, It makes great rat poisoning" ☠️.

Book, Over-the-counter natural-cures continues,

And 99% of supplement companies use it including your MD physicians produced by drug giants, Hoffmann-La Roche and BASF. 

The University of Colorado reminded the scientific community of this danger when they published: “…baits containing large quantities of vitamin D are used very effectively as rodenticides (rat poison).” Said another way…SUPPLEMENT HUCKSTERS ARE PUTTING RAT POISON (AKA SYNTHETIC VITAMIN D) IN YOUR MULTI VITAMINS simply because it's cheap to make!

Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum and Dr. Gottlieb’s book, Real Cause, Real Cure, Wrote,

70% of whites, 90 % of Latinos, and 97% of blacks in the United States have low blood levels of vitamin D, reported researchers at Harvard and the University of Colorado in the Archives of Internal Medicine. That’s three out of four Americans with a vitamin D deficiency, which is so easy to prevent— causes tens of thousands of unnecessary deaths every year in the United States from heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and dementia.

Dr. Jacob & Gottlieb continue: “New research shows that these health problems are caused or complicated by vitamin D deficiency. (And you can add arthritis, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, depression, insomnia, fibromyalgia, and multiple sclerosis to that list of D-deficiency conditions.) D targets more than 2,000 genes (according to Dr. Bruce N Ames)— including genes that maintain the health of the heart, brain, immune system, muscles, and bones.
