Vitamin D and Other Nutrients Linked to Heart Disease

Emerging research suggests that nutritional factors—including vitamin D, magnesium, and others—may influence the risk and progression of cardiovascular disease.

People with vitamin D deficiency are at increased risk of high blood pressure, heart failure, and ischemic heart disease. In patients who already have heart disease, low vitamin D may increase the risk of high blood pressure or sudden death.

Low levels of nutrient— magnesium—may lead to a "cascade" of harmful inflammation-promoting events. This may lead to disease of the heart muscle (cardiomyopathy), increasing vulnerability to injury from other forms of stress.
