Stroke: Taking two vitamin supplements together could hike your risk of stroke by 17%

Supplements can be vital to those who struggle to get a certain vitamin organically – either through diet or other means. And taking supplements such as vitamin D and calcium are fairly common. But research suggests this could actually be putting your health at risk.

A study by US scientists, published in the Annals of Internal Medicine journal in 2019, found a link between certain types of pills that combine vitamin D and calcium with strokes. Researchers think the combination could cause atherosclerosis, a disease that occurs when fatty substances build up in the arteries. If left untreated this can block the flow of blood to the heart or brain, ultimately causing strokes or heart attacks.
