10, 2013 (HealthDay News) Taking vitamin D supplements does not prevent the bone weakening of osteoporosis in healthy adults, a new review finds. Nearly half of people aged 50 and older use vitamin D supplements, but these findings suggest that there is no need for healthy adults to take these supplements to combat osteoporosis. THURSDAY, Oct. 4, 2018 (HealthDay News) Vitamin D supplements have long been touted as a way to improve bone health and possibly ward off the bone-thinning disease osteoporosis.

Older people are often encouraged to take supplements of vitamin D to keep bones, teeth and muscles healthy. But a Newcastle University-led study, published in the. Those of us who are deficient in the vitamin — an oft-cited study puts the number at over 40 percent of the U.S. population — may reap benefits from raising their levels. “We know that having very low levels of vitamin D is bad for a lot of things, especially bones. Continued. In addition, later reviews of the WHI data indicated that people who started taking calcium and vitamin D supplements had a reduced risk of hip fractures and other broken bones.

But it’s pretty clear that supplement use has no benefit for the general population. Supplements are not a substitute for a healthy balanced diet,” said Dr. Fang Fang Zhang, the study.

The results revealed that after 1 year of taking these supplements, blood levels of one type of vitamin D (25-OH) and one type of omega-3 (n-3 FA) were 39% and 55% higher in. And a large study of aging in the Netherlands published in the May 2008 issue of Archives of General Psychiatry found a relationship between vitamin D deficiency and depression in women and men ages 65 to 95.

A vitamin D deficiency can affect more than just your bones; it can affect your skin as well. Healthy vitamin D levels might help prevent skin from prematurely aging b ut too much sun leads to accelerated skin aging. Some studies have found that vitamin D can help treat skin.

Vitamin D Research indicates that vitamin D may have beneficial effects on aging muscle biology, and there is evidence to suggest a protective role for vitamin D supplementation in older adults to preserve lean body mass and muscle strength and prevent frailty.

In addition, middle-aged and elderly adults are at high risk for vitamin D deficiency because of poor dietary intake, inadequate sun exposure, and an age-related decrease in vitamin D synthesis [3,225,226].

The importance of these studies lies in the fact that, even after ensuring vitamin D repletion, there was still a calcium benefit, and hence presumptively calcium deficiency in this age group.

  • This is misleading. Supplements are for people who have special medical conditions. It is always the case that if you eat normally and your body function normally, you don’t need any supplements or medicine.

  • I’m on a weekly large dose of vitamin D prescribed by my doctor due to a vitamin D level of <15 ng/mL (tested in late summer). I live in the Pacific Northwest, where sun exposure and my normal behavior and dress mean that I'm unlikely to be able to increase this level on my own. I have another appointment in a few weeks to test the effects of this supplement.

  • I have a teenager and her doctor said she was vitamin d deficient and to give low dose supplement. We live in oregon, sun is scarce in the winter. Are we wasting money.? I am in no way concerned about hip fractures.

  • For the past two years I have been battling severe shoulder, back, and leg pain. At 29, I refused to believe this is just getting older. After many Vicodin, a wrong diagnosis of fibromyalgia, and being asked if I’m just anxious, a doctor finally ordered a vitamin d test. After it came back very low, I started high dose d2 supplements (50,000). Have to take it for the next twelve weeks. I really hope this is finally the answer.

  • “Narcotic” is a political term for politicians & law enforcement organizations whose narcotic squads go after many controlled substances which are not true narcotics-like marijuana, cocaine, amphetamines, meth, PCP, barbiturates, tranquilizers, etc… even “bath salts.” Unfortunately this causes confusion because the TV/media reporters use “narcotic” as a catch-all just like LEOs. Chronic pain patients and medical professionals know or learn the difference.

  • nar·cot·ic (när-ktk)
    n.
    A drug derived from opium or opiumlike compounds, with potent analgesic effects associated with significant alteration of mood and behavior, and with the potential for dependence and tolerance following repeated administration.

    ^^^ Scientific Definition

  • I don’t know why high dose D didn’t help. I had stopped taking D (except for a low dose daily multivitamin) for a few years before discovering that sitting in the sun helped. Maybe it’s something to do with homegrown D.

  • OMG! I’ve been suffering from severe chronic pain from atypical trigeminal neuralgia for about a decade and have been prescribed morphine for it for the last several years. I had no idea Vitamin D could be beneficial for chronic pain sufferers. BRB, ordering some Vitamin D3… LOL Thank you, Mayo Clinic!:D
