New research findings show vitamin D deficiency from birth to early childhood is associated with an increased risk of elevated blood pressure in later childhood and adolescence.
World Health Organization statistics show that, globally, around 40 percent of adults aged 25 or over had high blood pressure in 2008. Known as the ‘silent killer’ because most people afflicted with the condition experience no symptoms from it, high blood pressure is estimated to cause about 7.5 million deaths every year.
Based on Dr. Rath’s groundbreaking Cellular Medicine research, we now know that the primary cause of this major health problem is a chronic deficiency of specific micronutrients in the cells of the artery walls. The key micronutrients that play a role in preventing and normalizing high blood pressure include arginine, vitamin C, magnesium, lysine and proline. By ensuring an optimum supply of these particular micronutrients to the body, it is possible to control high blood pressure naturally, without drugs.
