Could monthly vitamin D supplements help prevent heart attacks?

  • Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that is important for bone health and immune system support
  • Australian researchers followed a group of older people to see whether vitamin D supplements could reduce the risk of major heart disease events.
  • The researchers gave the test group a monthly vitamin D supplement which they took for five years.
  • While the risk reduction was not as great as the researchers had hoped, they did learn that the people who took vitamin D supplements had a small risk reduction for certain major cardiovascular events.
