Calcium plus Vitamin D Reduces Falls In Elderly Women

Results from new research indicate long-term supplementation with calcium and vitamin D greatly reduces the risk of falling in women over the age of 65. While this finding was not true for men, women over the age of 65 reduced their risk of falling by 46 percent - 65 percent in less active women. The supplementation seemed to have greater success on the less active women.
