Natural health experts have known for decades how powerful this particular vitamin is to battle high blood pressure.
The big pharmaceutical companies have, however, used endless resources and influence to trash any study that showed positive effects from this essential vitamin.
Research recently published in the online science journal?PLOS One, however, revealed conclusive proof that high blood pressure is caused (and cured) by this one vitamin.
Research on mice recently looked at the connection between high blood pressure and vitamin D. In the two-part study, four groups of mice were given specific diets.
In one part of the study, the mice were given vitamin D-deficient and vitamin D-sufficient diets. In the second part of the study, they were further divided between a high-fat or low-fat diet.
This resulted in the four groups: Vitamin D-deficient, high-fat; vitamin D deficient, low-fat; vitamin D-sufficient, high-fat; and vitamin D sufficient, low-fat.
What the researchers found was that for mice that were in the vitamin D-deficient groups, both high- and low-fat diet, mice developed high blood pressure. It didn?t matter if the diet was high- or low-fat they all became hypertensive.
What?s more, when the hypertensive mice from the deficient group then received sufficient levels of vitamin D, their blood pressure stabilized and they no longer showed signs of high blood pressure.
Before the study, all researchers had to go on was correlative studies that were criticized by pharmaceutical groups as not having irrefutable proof; this study ends the debate.
But humans are a little bit more complicated than mice. And although taking vitamin D will help manage high blood pressure, it may not be enough.
