France is undergoing, at this moment, a sunshine very low. A lot of rain, clouds, cold weather : this weather has consequences on our moral but also our health. In fact, sun exposure can be full of vitamin D which helps the calcium to attach to the bone. This is not the only benefit of the sun on our body. Vitamin D3 is manufactured by the body when skin is exposed to the rays of the sun. Researchers from the University of Ohio, in the United States, show that this vitamin can prevent, and possibly treat the damage caused on the body by the cardiovascular disease to the image of the diabetes, high blood pressure or atherosclerosis. The results have been published in the International Journal of Nanomedicine.

A method of research single

The Dr. Tadeusz Malinksi is one of the main authors of this research. He explains that “in recent years, many hospital executives have acknowledged that many of the patients who have had a heart attack had a deficiency of vitamin D3. This is not to say that it is this deficiency that causes the heart attack, but that it increases the risk of having one”. The team of the professor has developed a technique of innovative research, which consists of measuring the nanosenseurs, particles 1,000 times finer than a human hair. This allowed them to measure the effects of vitamin D3 on endothelial cells. They are a necessary component of the cardiovascular system.

A vitamin available in food supplement

Research shows that vitamin D3 stimulates the production of nitric oxide, a molecule that is involved in the regulation of blood pressure and prevent the formation of blood clots. The scientists also conclude that this vitamin helps repair the body of damage caused by certain cardiovascular diseases : “It is a very easy and inexpensive to treat the cardiovascular system. We don’t have to manufacture a new drug. We have already” welcomed professor Malinski.

When it is difficult to expose themselves to the sun, it is possible to provide the vitamin D3 through dietary supplements or by consuming foods such as fatty fish, eggs, or butter.
