Closer look: Effects of vitamin D on neuroplasticity and muscle strength in older adults

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.
