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.

Getting a Suntan is very dangerous, but NICE warns you NEED your Vitamin D

NICE have further warned the public about the dangers of sun exposure while getting a suntan.

There is no safe or healthy way to get a tan from sunlight, new guidance from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has warned.

The health watchdog’s latest guidance also says an existing tan provides little protection against sun exposure.

Many adults in Britain have low levels of Vitamin D and the NICE guidance states that some exposure to sunlight can help to build this up.

NICE also says it is not possible to get enough Vitamin D by sitting next to a closed sunny window, or from sunlight between October and March in the UK.

Vitamin D: NICE calls for Halal options to Prevent Deficiency

The National Institute for Care and Health Excellence (UK) is about to publish guidelines for the prevention of Vitamin D Deficiency after a long period of consultation.

Vitamin D is essential for skeletal growth and bone health. Severe Vitamin D deficiency can result in rickets (among children) and osteomalacia (among children and adults). Some scientific research suggests that low Vitamin D levels contribute to a risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, dementia, infertility, MS and many other diseases. National surveys suggest that the majority of Asian/Afro-Caribbeans in the UK may have low Vitamin D status. Continue reading
