Vitamin D3 Can Boost Your Heart Function



Heart failure affects more than 23 million people worldwide. This condition affects people of all ages. But is more common in older people.

 While this may be a great source of concern. A new research study offers hope.  The study points out that vitamin D3 can greatly improve heart function. According to the researchers, vitamin D3 strengthens the heart muscle of people with heart muscle weakness.

Vitamin D3 gets its boost by exposure to the sun. The study included 160 patients who suffered from heart failure and were undergoing treatment.

One group of participants were given vitamin D3 and the other group was given a placebo or dummy tablets. This continued for a period of one year.

A cardiac ultrasound was used to note the changes in the heart function. The results revealed that the pumping function of the heart greatly improved in patients who took vitamin D3 supplement.

The researchers avoided the usage of calcium based supplements. As this would complicate matters for heart failure patients.



Amazing ways to get vitamin D include
Ø Exposure to the sun
Ø Fatty fish such as salmon
Ø Canned tuna fish
Ø Mushrooms
Ø Fortified milk
Ø Fortified orange juice
Ø Egg yolks
Ø Vitamin D supplements
Ø Fortified cereal
Ø Beef liver
Ø Cod liver oil
Ø Ultraviolet lamps and bulbs

So take your daily quotient of vitamin D3 and have a healthy heart.

Alcohol During Pregnancy May Harm Even Your Great Grandkid





Drinking alcohol during pregnancy poses a severe danger, not only to the mother but for future generations. It is kind of scary is it not?

Alcohol consumption during pregnancy is not recommended by health professionals. They say alcohol impacts brain cells. Throughout the pregnancy, the brain cells of the baby keep on growing. It may have an impact on the tender growing a brain of the baby.

Research study
Researchers from the Binghamton University did an experiment on rats. The rats were given one glass of wine for up to four days. Then the offspring was tested for water or alcohol consumption.

The researchers found that in rats when the mother drinks one glass alcohol four times during pregnancy. Her children and grandchildren up to the third generation, show increased alcohol preference and less sensitivity to alcohol.

This study shows the transgenerational effect of alcohol for generations to come. This study is the first of its kind. The consumption of alcohol even in small amounts affects the generations that were not directly exposed to the uterus during the pregnancy.

According to WebMD alcohol can pass from mother’s blood to the baby’s blood. It can cause damage to the baby’s brain and spinal cord cells. The other effects of alcohol include distinctive facial features, growth problems, learning and behavior problems, conduct disorders and birth defects. These kids may have problems with bonding or feeding.

What to do if you have a drinking problem?


If you have this problem and you are pregnant, you can talk openly to your doctor about this. The earlier the better. Your baby can get the best possible treatment to reach his or her full potential in life. Your doctor could guide you in this matter. However, there is no treatment to reverse the impact of alcohol on your baby. There is no treatment to make the effects less severe.
