A Danish study involving 112 patients with hypertension found that vitamin D supplements could be as effective as drugs in reducing blood pressure. Taking vitamin D supplements daily for 20 weeks significantly reduced patients' central systolic blood pressure and lowered their systolic pressure by 6.8 mmHg and diastolic pressure by 1.7 mmHg. The study was presented at the conference of the European Society of Hypertension.
