Low Vitamin D Levels Associated With an Increased Risk of Peripheral Arterial Disease
Date:4/16/2008

rdiovascular disease, such as vitamin E, which did not pan out after being tested in a randomized clinical trial," Melamed said. "Therefore, we would not recommend people start taking vitamin D supplements without talking to their doctors. However, we recommend eating a balanced diet. People obtain vitamin D either through exposure to the sun or from foods, especially fish and fortified milk and other fortified foods."

The American Heart Association currently recommends that healthy people get adequate nutrients by eating a variety of foods in moderation, rather than by taking supplements. Food sources of vitamin D include fortified milk, salmon, sardines, cod liver oil and some fortified cereals. Vitamin or mineral supplements aren't a substitute for a balanced, nutritious diet that limits excess calories, saturated fat, trans fat, sodium and dietary cholesterol. This dietary approach has been shown to reduce coronary heart disease risk in healthy people and those with coronary disease.
