Vitamin D intake in any therapeutic doses does not change the rate of bone fractures and has no effect on bone density, a major statistic-based study has shown. It was published in peer-reviewed Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology.
The data was based on 81 randomized controlled tests with more than 53,000 people involved.
“Our meta-analysis finds that vitamin D does not prevent fractures, falls or improve bone mineral density, whether at high or low dose,” leading author of the Lancet’s article Dr. Mark J. Bolland, associate professor at the University of Auckland in New Zealand, stated.
The study is one in a row of publications that prove that at least vitamins E, C, and D are useless when taken as an additional supplements. They do not improve the conditions they supposed to treat and are typically a waste of money. What’s interesting is that there is scientifically unexplained controversy as vitamins role in the metabolism is well studied and proved. However artificial intake of the supplements, based on the same vitamins are statistically proven to be useless. The question why the vitamins work in vivo but not while taken as supplement is still widely open.
