Contrary to current opinion, a systematic review of 33 randomized trials in about 50,000 community-living adults over 50 years old found no benefit for supplementation of vitamin D and/or calcium. This study strongly supports the U.S. Preventive Services Taskforce in not recommending calcium or vitamin D supplementation in this population.
LifeTip: Get your vitamin D from adequate sun exposure, exercise daily, and include plenty of calcium-rich foods in your diet. Watch “Prevent Osteoporosis Naturally” with Dr. David DeRose for more recommendations.
