Vitamin D3 and Your Heart

Cardiac Hypertrophy

Cardiac hypertrophy

Cardiac hypertrophy is the abnormal enlargement, or thickening, of the heart muscle, resulting from increases in cardiomyocyte size and changes in other heart muscle components, such as extracellular matrix. Causes can be physiological – for example, the amount of exercise performed by an athlete – or pathological – for example, as a result of hypertension or valvular disease.


Treatment.—The treatment of cardiac hypertrophy needs a careful study of each case, and will depend altogether upon the conditions present. When compensation is properly maintained, the treatment will be largely dietetic and hygienic

*Aconite adds tone to the heart, and encourages normal muscular action by removing irritation, and the small, frequent, hard pulse will be the symptoms calling for it. As the pulse is diminished in frequency, it gains in power.

*Cactus encourages nutrition, adds tone to the organ, and is one of the best remedies in maintaining a stage of compensation

*Macrotys is an old and well-tried remedy where there is soreness and pain in the precordial region.

Lobelia will be called for to relieve asthmatic conditions where there is a sense of oppression, weight, and fullness in the precordial region, and where the pulse is of the same character.



Vitamin A

Vitamin A is the name of a group of fat-soluble retinoids, including retinol, retinal, and retinyl esters [1-3]. Vitamin A is involved in immune function, vision, reproduction, and cellular communication [(365) 654-3519,(620) 431-1983,5]. Vitamin A is critical for vision as an essential component of rhodopsin, a protein that absorbs light in the retinal receptors, and because it supports the normal differentiation and functioning of the conjunctival membranes and cornea [gigmanity]. Vitamin A also supports cell growth and differentiation, playing a critical role in the normal formation and maintenance of the heart, lungs, kidneys, and other organs [2].

Ginseng, the root of Panax ginseng C. A. Mayer, has long been used clinically in China to treat various diseases. Multiple effects of ginseng, such as antitumor, antiinflammatory, antiallergic, antioxidative, antidiabetic and antihypertensive have been confirmed by modern medicine. Recently, the clinical utilization of ginseng to treat heart diseases has increased dramatically. The roles of ginseng in protecting heart are foci for research in modern medical science and have been partially demonstrated, and the mechanisms of protection against coronary artery disease, cardiac hypertrophy, heart failure, cardiac energy metabolism, cardiac contractility, and arrhythmia are being uncovered progressively. However, more studies are needed to elucidate the complex mechanisms by which ginseng protects heart. All such studies will provide evidence of ginseng’s clinical application, international promotion, and new drug development.


The present study was carried out to determine whether ginseng exerts a direct antihypertrophic effect in cultured cardiomyocytes and whether it modifies the heart failure process in vivo. Moreover, we determined the potential underlying mechanisms for these actions.

Conclusions— Taken together, our results demonstrate a robust antihypertrophic and antiremodeling effect of ginseng, which is mediated by inhibition of NHE-1–dependent calcineurin activation.
