We previously wrote about research that was presented at the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research Annual Meeting. The research focused on the effects of vitamin D on neuroplasticity of the brain, as well as muscle strength and performance in older adults.

The full study, which was double-blinded, randomized, and controlled, was published recently, allowing for an in depth look at the methodology and results.

The conclusion of the study was that vitamin D improved muscle strength and neuroplasticity in older adults. However, compared to the placebo group, the group receiving vitamin D supplementation showed no improvements in either parameter. These conclusions warrant a closer look in order to make sense of these interesting results.
