The interest on vitamin D deficiency continues to escalate. We’re seeing a significant number of request for reprints of our expert scientific review paper, which means the vitamin D story is now clear to most physicians.
Las Vegas, NV (Vocus/PRWEB) February 11, 2011
Cenegenics® Medical Institute, the global age management medicine leader, announced that PubMed—the medical database maintained by the U.S. National Library of Medicine and National Institute of Health—published its expert scientific review collaboration entitled, “Is Vitamin D Deficiency Associated with Heart Failure? A Review of Current Evidence.” The collaboration was done with Dr. Ernst R. von Schwarz—professor of medicine at UCLA’s David Geffen School of Medicine.
The expert scientific review—investigating current evidence that associates a vitamin D deficiency with heart failure—first appeared in the Journal of Cardiovascular Pharmacology and Therapeutics. The emphasis, Cenegenics says, was on improving cardiovascular health and disease through supplementation. Their collaborative research concludes that vitamin D does play a vital role in diastolic heart failure and end-stage heart failure . . . yet, our understanding of the heart failure/vitamin D link is still evolving.
“The interest on vitamin D deficiency continues to escalate. We’re seeing a significant number of request for reprints of our expert scientific review paper. The vitamin D story is now clear to most physicians who are recognizing it as an important pro-hormone that supports the concept that you can achieve a generalized effect and measurable results on health through a simple supplement,” Dr. Robert D. Willix, Jr. said.
Willix is co-author on the study, a former cardiovascular surgeon and chief medical officer of Cenegenics Las Vegas as well as chief medical officer and CEO of Cenegenics Boca Raton.
Cenegenics conducts studies via its nonprofit Cenegenics Education and Research Foundation (CERF), which also offers a CME-accredited physician training/certification program in age management medicine.
Per Willix, CERF also is forging research collaborations to investigate other avenues of the aging process—such as nutraceuticals to help slow the aging process and reduce some age-related occurrences, i.e. oxidative stress, telomere shortening and stem cell depletion.
