Cardiorespiratory fitness, the ability of the body to deliver oxygen to the muscles during physical exercise, depends on the level of vitamin D in the blood, according to a study published in the journal European Journal of Preventive Cardiology.
As a study published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology shows, vitamin D improves cardiorespiratory fitness because it strengthens the heart muscle.
"Our study shows that a large amount of vitamin D in the body is associated with better exercise capacity. We also know from previous research that vitamin D has positive effects on the heart and bones, "said Amr Marawan, a professor at Virginia Commonwealth University.
And add, "Make sure you have normal or high vitamin D levels. You can get it by dieting, taking dietary supplements, reasonably exposing yourself to the sun. "
Cardiorespiratory fitness is the ability of the circulatory and respiratory systems to supply oxygen and energy to muscles and organs that are stressed during exercise, which, among other things, strengthens the heart muscle.
