Vitamin D – No benefit on bone density or fractures

VitdEffects of vitamin D supplements on bone mineral density: a systematic review and meta-analysis

A team of our colleagues from New Zealand have performed a meta analysis of the effects of Vit D supplementation on bone density. Didn’t work, apparently.

Continuing widespread use of vitamin D for osteoporosis prevention in community-dwelling adults without specific risk factors for vitamin D deficiency seems to be inappropriate.

A previous meta-analysis has not shown benefit for Vit D in preventing fractures.

Why then is everybody taking it?
