Effets des supplémentations en calcium et vitamine D sur la maladie cardiovasculaire

Published in Revue médicale suisse. 2012, vol. 8, no. 348, p. 1458-63
Abstract Studies exploring the effect of calcium supplementation on cardiovascular risk suggest that systolic blood pressure decreases with supplementation. A lower calcium intake has been associated with an increased risk of stroke. By contrast, calcium supplementation may increase the risk of myocardial infarction. The effect of vitamin D supplementation on blood pressure is still unclear and no effect of vitamin D supplementation on coronary heart disease or stroke has been clearly demonstrated. There is a lack of randomized clinical trials primarily addressing the effect of these parameters on CVD. Currently, the use of calcium and vitamin D supplementations for the prevention of cardiovascular disease is not justified.
