Notes
grade-b Minor Very High See 2 studies
A decrease in bone fracture risk (nonvetebral and hip) appears to exist when supplemental doses of Vitamin D3 are taken above 800 IU, with this protective effect being highly correlated with the improvement in functionality and fall reduction risk
grade-c Notable Very High See 2 studies
The decrease in fracture risk seen with vitamin K supplementation in susceptible cohorts appears to be greater than seen with other supplements
