Many previous studies have said that Vitamin D helps in adding to the health of the heart. Now an american research team has found evidence through a trail that vitamin D seams to be reducing LDL, otherwise known as bad cholesterol. The usage has lead to higher serum levels of vitamin D, and notable drop in LDL, revealed the scientists. The study was done in women who have passed their menopause.
In comparison with calcium supplements, vitamin D seems to have had better effect with relation to heart’s health. The change in LDL is significant, and in the right direction, but not enough to say that it will prevent people from getting heart disease, said the researchers.
