Daily Vitamin D supplementation ‘heals damaged hearts’

With so many people struggling with heart disease throughout the world, its only natural that a lot of effort goes into fighting against it. But few new things seem to actually work against the condition, but sometimes the only reason we can’t seem to find a new solution is because we’re looking in the wrong place.

According to a team of researchers from the University of Leeds, School of Medicine, heart function is improved through Vitamin D3.

It is no secret how important we at Halal Treatments consider Vitamin D to be, especially officially and independently fully certified (ingredients, processes and facilities) Halal Vitamin D. This new study further increases the importance of using Vitamin D supplements to ensure you body remains healthy.

Heart failure, which can lead to shortness of breath and exhaustion, affects about 900,000 people in the UK and more than 23 million worldwide.

Vitamin D levels are boosted by exposing the skin to sunlight. It is often lacking in heart failure patients because they tend to be older and less likely to engage in outdoor activities. Researchers studied 160 patients being treated for heart failure using a variety of proven drug treatments and pacemakers. Participants who took a vitamin D3 supplement daily for one year experienced an improvement in heart function not seen in those given a dummy pill.

Lead scientist Dr Klaus Witte, from the School of Medicine at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, said: “This is a significant breakthrough for patients. It is the first evidence that Vitamin D3 can improve heart function of people with heart muscle weakness, known as heart failure. These findings could make a significant difference to the care of heart failure patients.”

Because it is dangerous to spend too much time in the sun and the fact a lot of us work inside such as in offices, we do not get enough Vitamin D which is why it is essential to take Vitamin D supplements, that have been certified Halal, such as Pro D3 and SunVit D3 as they offer the purest form of Vitamin D intake.

Happy New Year 2016

We at Halal Treatments would like to wish each and every one of you who search, read, comment and share as well as and take part alongside us a very Happy New Year and we hope that 2016 is a great year.

2015 was a great year for us as we gathered evidence regarding misuse of Halal in terms of the United Kingdom and the NHS and provided you with information on the lack of respect for the term Halal and actual accepted Halal options.

We can only hope that the NHS and patients took notice and bring forward the correct Halal options.

Please note we are now on Twitter, so please give us a follow and a mention to keep up to date with all the goings on at Halal Treatments.

Malaysia offering “Halal Treatments” for Muslim Medical Tourists

Muslims now make up about 60% of the Malaysian population and Malaysia wants to transform its visitor dividend into a bid to overtake its neighbours for the world’s medical tourism title. malay-halal-tourism The south eastern Asian country seeks to appeal to the less affluent patients with reasonably priced treatments.
