Dr. Sorenson shares the relationship between high blood pressure and vitamin D.
Dr. Sorenson, Ed.D.:
The connection between high blood pressure and vitamin D is quite concrete. In fact, if we take a look at men, men who have the lowest levels of vitamin D have almost six times the risk of being hypertensive. With women, it’s approximately three times the risk of being hypertensive with low vitamin D levels versus high vitamin D levels. And we don’t know exactly why that is, but it could relate again to the inflammatory properties or the anti-inflammatory properties, whichever you are looking at of vitamin D.
