During the past couple of weeks, I’ve seen articles on the web, in newspapers and on the television news about new recommendations from the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force for calcium and vitamin D.
They are recommending against daily supplementation with 400 IU or less of vitamin D3 and 1,000 mg of calcium carbonate for healthy older women, stating that it doesn’t work to prevent bone fractures in post-menopausal women. However, they say that the data is insignificant to make recommendations for larger doses of these supplements or for younger women or men.
