STUDY: Vitamin D helps protect against bone fractures in seniors
Taking a vitamin a day may just be what is needed to protect against bone fractures.
A new study out today shows new support for taking Vitamin D supplements especially seniors.
Researchers studied more than 31,000 people 65 or older taking 800 international units of Vitamin D a day.
Researchers found that those taking the supplement had fewer bone fractures.
Vitamin D is called the sunshine vitamin because its typically manufactured by the body's exposure to sunlight.
