To examine the connection between vitamin D, muscle strength, and mobility, researchers studied 302 women between ages 70 and 90 with low blood vitamin D levels. The women were divided into two groups, receiving either 1,000 IU of vitamin D per day or a placebo. Lower body muscle strength was measured at the beginning and end of the study. Mobility was assessed with the timed up-and-go test, which measures how long it takes a person to get up from a chair, walk a short distance, and return to the chair.
After a year of supplementing with vitamin D, compared with the placebo group, women with the weakest leg muscle strength and poorest mobility at the beginning of the study had significantly greater forward and backward (extensor) strength, side-to-side (abductor) strength, and faster timed up-and-go tests. Only the group who took supplements showed significant increases in blood vitamin D levels.
Keep the following tips in mind about vitamin D and how to help yourself age well:
