Scientists have suggested, there is very little proof of the fact that the use of Vitamin D supplements helps to maintain or improve musculoskeletal health. Researchers said that taking the supplements would only turn out to be useful for all those who want to prevent rare conditions like rickets and osteomalacia from taking place. These conditions usually occur out of Vitamin D deficiency.
Vitamin D helps to regulate the amount of calcium and phosphate in the body, which are required to keep teeth, bones, and muscles healthy. The Department of Health presently recommends that all children, who are under five, should consume a daily supplement. Even all those women who are pregnant and involve in breastfeeding should also take the supplements. These supplements are even ideal for older people, who do not often go outdoors due to their weakness or stay in a care home. It goes on to suggest that other adults must take a supplement during the autumn and winter when they have less probability of getting sunlight on their skin. Between the months starting from late March or early April to the end of September, most of the people can get all the required amount of Vitamin D through sunlight and a balanced diet.
The authors of the study said clinical guidelines that recommend vitamin D supplements for bone health should be changed immediately to reflect the best possible evidence. They said their research was the largest meta-analysis ever to get carried out with data collected from 81 controlled trials randomly. The lead author of the study named Dr. Mark Boland said, since the last significant evidence back in the year 2014, more than 30 randomized controlled trials on Vitamin D and bone health have been published. Their meta-analysis finds that Vitamin D fails to prevent fractures, falls or even improve bone mineral density. In the secondary analysis looking at bone density, there were minute differences noticed for lumbar spine, femoral neck and an overall body but none of them was clinically relevant.
