- Health Notes
Vitamin D Protects Mature MusclesVitamin D Protects Mature MusclesPeople who were vitamin D–deficient were more likely to have physical limitations
Older people with higher vitamin D levels are better able to perform activities of daily living than those with lower levels, reports a study in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism.
Vitamin D is actually a hormone precursor that has many diverse roles in the body, from influencing calcium metabolism and bone health, to functioning in immune system health, brain development, and nerve transmission. Muscle cells contain vitamin D receptors, and optimal vitamin D status is linked to greater muscle strength, increased muscle mass, and better physical performance.
Do more with D
While several studies have reported on the connection between vitamin D status and muscle strength, that hasn't translated to much evidence supporting the sunshine vitamin's role in helping people maintain independence while performing daily living tasks.
The study looked at the vitamin D status of 725 people aged 55 to 65 years and 1,237 people aged 65 to 88 years to determine whether it affected their ability to perform the following tasks:
- Walk up and down a flight of stairs without resting
- Trim their toenails
- Sit down and stand up from a chair
- Walk outside for five minutes without resting
- Use one's own or public transportation
At baseline, younger people who were vitamin D-deficient were 1.7 times more likely to have physical limitations and older people were 2.2 times more likely to have physical limitations than those with adequate vitamin D levels. Three years later, vitamin D-deficient people in the older group had twice the risk of developing two or more additional physical limitations. Six years later, vitamin D-deficient people in the younger group had more than three times the risk of developing two or more additional limitations.
"Because functional limitations are a predictor of adverse outcomes, further research is necessary to explore underlying mechanisms and the potential benefits of vitamin D supplements on functional status," said the researchers.
Muscle mass gradually declines over the years starting at around age 40 and the decline accelerates after about age 75. Besides a decrease in independence, having less muscle puts you at higher risk for osteoporosis, falls, and even arthritis.
To keep your muscles strong throughout the years, try these tips:
- Exercise. Up to 75% of older adults don't get enough exercise. Work with a knowledgeable trainer to develop a comprehensive program that includes aerobic, balance, and weight-training exercises.
- Get enough protein. Protein absorption decreases over the years, contributing to muscle loss. Try to incorporate a protein source with every meal and snack and consider supplementing with a high-quality, easily assimilated protein like whey.
- Look into amino acids. As building blocks of protein, amino acids are intimately tied to muscle health. A combination of lysine, HMB (hydroxymethylbutyrate), and arginine have a good track record for helping seniors preserve their muscle mass.

Comments about ISS Lenny & Larry's® Muscle Brownie Cookies and Cream:
I ordered these along with the chocolate peanut butter brownies[...] They taste great but would not pay more than $20 a box for them.
