Publication types: English Abstract ; Journal Article
Studies exploring the effect of calcium supplementation on cardiovascular risk suggest that systolic blood pressure decreases with supplementation. A lower calcium intake has been associated with an increased risk of stroke. By contrast, calcium supplementation may increase the risk of myocardial infarction. The effect of vitamin D supplementation on blood pressure is still unclear and no effect of vitamin D supplementation on coronary heart disease or stroke has been clearly demonstrated. There is a lack of randomized clinical trials primarily addressing the effect of these parameters on CVD. Currently, the use of calcium and vitamin D supplementations for the prevention of cardiovascular disease is not justified.
