For the study, the researchers analyzed the effects of vitamin D on the three groups of women aged between 50 and 70. Three groups of women were assigned different doses of IU: 600, 2,000, and 4,000.

The analysis, performed by the scientists, showed that taking 4,000 IU of vitamin D per day might not be a problem for young people, but it could compromise older adults' ability to walk or catch balance to avoid a fall.
