Researchers at the University of Warwick revealed the fact that the intake of a good quantity of vitamin D may reduce the chances of heart disease or diabetes in old age. Hence the people who get plenty of vitamins from sunlight are 55% less prone to developing diabetes as compared to the people who do not.
90% of the vitamin D comes from sunshine; hence people may sit in the sun for at least 30 minutes two times in a week, with no application of any kind of sunscreen on the exposed parts. One can also take vitamin D-rich fool like tuna and mackerel.
Boffins examined vitamin D and cardio metabolic disorders in order to reach a conclusion.
The researchers examined as good as 99,745 participants irrespective of their nationality and culture. It revealed that a high level of vitamin D is closely connected to a decreased risk of developing cardiovascular disease, type-2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome.
Dr Oscar Franco, Assistant Professor in Public Health at Warwick Medical School said," We found that high levels of vitamin D among middle age and elderly populations are associated with a substantial decrease in cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome. Targeting vitamin D deficiency in adult populations could potentially slow the current epidemics of cardio metabolic disorders".
