In a nutshell: A five-year study at the University of Leeds suggests a daily dose of vitamin D improves heart function in people with chronic heart failure. The study, which was funded by the Medical Research Council and involved several BHF-funded researchers including BHF Professor Mark Kearney, found that in the 80 patients who took Vitamin D, the heart’s pumping function improved from 26 per cent to 34 percent.
