An analysis of over 12,000 adults showed that as blood levels of Vitamin D decrease, blood pressure levels increase.

The study tracked the US adults for 6 years monitoring blood pressure and Vitamin D levels. The study was reported in July’s American Journal of Hypertension. The researchers found systolic blood pressure in people with higher levels of vitamin D was 3 mm/Hg lower than those with lower vitamin D levels.

The research showed that people with low Vitamin D levels had high blood pressure levels, especially those aged 50 years or more.

Vitamin D levels can be increased by exposure to sun in moderation and is also obtained from dietary sources including oily fish, egg yolk and liver.
