ABSTRACT
The article discusses studies that highlight benefits of vitamin D related to cardiovascular biomarkers, blood pressure, and a longer life. In a recent study, researchers found that 83 mcg/day of vitamin D would not hinder weight-loss efforts and is also able to significantly improve several cardiovascular disease (CVD) biomarkers. According to a study published in "The New England Journal of Medicine," getting five to 30 minutes of sun twice per week is one way to get enough vitamin D.
