The link between vitamin D and a reduction in the risk of older adults suffering from a fall is the focus of Dietary/Food Supplement Associations (IADSA) latest “Mind the GAP resource.
The resource explains that falling is a risk factor for bone fractures among men and women aged 60 years and older. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there are 37.3 million falls every year - more than 100,000 a day - that is serious enough to require attention.
Multiple factors can increase the risk of falls, including a lack of vitamin D. Scientists believe vitamin D improves muscle function, strength, and body balance, which helps reduce the risk of falling.
WHO and the U.S. National Institute on Aging both suggest that a lack of vitamin D could increase the risk of a fracture as a result of a fall. The European Commission, meanwhile, has approved a health claim for vitamin D and a reduced risk of falling.
