Calcium, vitamin D supplementation improves cholesterol in postmenopausal women


Maintaining high blood levels of 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D), which is said to be the most accurate indicator of vitamin D levels inside the body, appears to play a prominent role in mitigating inflammation and keeping cholesterol in check. Researchers from the Women's Health Initiative, publishing their findings in the online journal Menopause, found that postmenopausal women with the highest vitamin D levels fared the best in terms of cholesterol levels, suggesting that vitamin D could help prevent cardiovascular events.
