Vitamin D Prevents Infections

Participants in a study on fracture prevention were randomly assigned to receive 800 IU per day of vitamin D, 1,000 mg per day of calcium, both supplements, or placebo for 24 to 62 months. Among the 55% of questionnaire respondents who were still taking their treatment, the incidence of infections was 20% lower in those assigned to received vitamin D than than those assigned not to receive vitamin D (p=0.06).

A dose of 800 IU per day of vitamin D appears to be the minimum amount that improves various clinical outcomes in elderly people.
