Too Much Vitamin D May Do Harm to Health of Senior People
According to a recent study, published in The Journals of Gerontology: Series A, too much vitamin D may lead to slower reaction times and increase the risk of falling among seniors.
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.
The researchers believe that more studies are needed to determine whether slower reaction times are associated with an increase in the risk of falls.
