Vitamin D

Older Women.

Clinical Study Title:
Administration of a supplement containing both calcium and vitamin D is more effective than calcium alone to reduce secondary hyperparathyroidism in postmenopausal women with low 25(OH)vitamin D circulating levels.

Plain English Summary:
The use of calcium to help prevent osteoporosis in older women has been proven to be effective. This study looks at the use of vitamin D in conjunction with calcium compared to the use of calcium alone for post menopausal women. A total of 100 women were included in this study. These women were given either calcium alone or calcium with citric acid and vitamin D for the course of 3 months. Those participants taking the calcium with vitamin D gained more benefit and improved more than those participants who were taking the calcium alone. This suggests that adding a vitamin D supplement to calcium supplementation can provide additional benefit for older women.
