Resolving the Vitamin D Paradox — Chris Masterjohn, Ph.D.

Paradoxically, vitamin D has the ability both to prevent and to cause heart disease. In both cases the mechanism involves pathological calcification of soft tissues. Recent evidence links commonly recommended doses of vitamin D to increased heart disease risk. Yet considerable evidence suggests that it is not just the dose of vitamin D, but other contextual factors, that determine whether this vitamin causes or prevents heart disease. This presentation will explore the roles of vitamins A and K, as well as other supportive nutrients and metabolic factors, in rendering vitamin D a heart-protective nutrient.
