The benefits of Vitamin D are numerous. This prompted a study to see if there was an impact on the mortality rate of seniors.

The study looked at “data on 70,528 randomized participants (86.8% females) with a median age of 70.” The researchers compared the mortality of those who took Vitamin D with and without calcium. What they discovered is that “Vitamin D with calcium reduces mortality in the elderly, whereas available data do not support an effect of vitamin D alone.”

Encourage your older relatives and friends to take their Vitamin D with calcium.
