This Vitamin May Not Lower Blood Pressure


Just because people with low vitamin D levels
often have high blood pressure doesn’t mean that more vitamin D will fix the problem.
I’m Miranda Savioli with your latest health news. Some scientists believe vitamin D may boost
heart health. A new review, however, found that taking vitamin D supplements was not
an effective way to lower blood pressure. The authors of this new report recommended
that these supplements not be used as a high blood pressure treatment. Patients can manage high blood pressure by
losing weight and staying physically active; if blood pressure remains high, patients can
ask a doctor about medication.
