Vitamin D

Supplementation for Older Adults.

Clinical Study Title:
Effects of vitamin D supplementation on strength, physical performance, and falls in older persons: a systematic review.

Plain English Summary:
This was a literature review of the use and effective of vitamin D supplements for older adults. Over 13 research studies were reviewed, with a total of over 2400 participants. Results were varied across the studies as to the exact role of vitamin D supplements at improving health for older adults, but all studies which involved calcium in combination with vitamin D suggested positive benefits. There have been very solid research studies that support the use of vitamin D in conjunction with other vitamins to obtain positive effects from this supplement.
