Joint Association of Low Vitamin D and Vitamin K Status With Blood Pressure and Hypertension. Hypertension (Dallas, Tex. : 1979), 69(6), 1165–1172. https://doi.org/10.1161/HYPERTENSIONAHA.116.08869
This article investigates the vitamin D and vitamin K status in relation to blood pressure and hypertension in elderly. Blood pressure was measured at the beginning of the experiment and the development of hypertension was measured as a follow-up after 6.4 years. Blood samples were used to assess the vitamin concentrations.
Increased blood pressure was linked to low vitamin D and vitamin K status, as well as a synergistic effect on blood pressure of these vitamins combined. In addition, the same trend was visible regarding the development of hypertension, although not statistically significant.
More research with higher sample sizes should be performed to validate these results.
