Vitamin D and Coronary Artery Calcification

Vitamin D, Calcium, and Arterial Health

While excessive vitamin D (hypervitaminosis D) can sometimes raise blood calcium levels, research suggests a more complex relationship with heart health:

  • Potential Risk: Very high vitamin D levels could, in some cases, contribute to calcification of the arteries.

  • Protective Effects: Studies indicate an inverse correlation between vitamin D and coronary artery calcification. This means increasing vitamin D within appropriate ranges may help reduce calcification and arterial stiffness.

  • The Role of Vitamin K2: Vitamin K2 works alongside vitamin D, ensuring calcium is properly deposited in bones and teeth, not soft tissues like arteries.
