Researchers have added another reason to optimize vitamin D intake—prevention of heart disease and stroke. Scientists discovered that, in a cell study, vitamin D restored a healthy balance between 2 key compounds required to maintain endothelial function. The beneficial compound is nitric oxide that maintains youthful blood vessel elasticity. The toxic one isperoxynitrite that inflicts blood vessel damage.1-4 This study showed that the addition of vitamin D to the cell culture resulted in an increase in protective nitric oxide and a decrease in destructive peroxynitrite.4 Restoring this balance represents a novel approach to reducing overall risk for cardiovascular disasters.
