Vitamin D deficiency: Supplements not enough for your children, research reveals
According to a significant clinical experiment conducted by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and Queen Mary University of London, vitamin D supplements do not strengthen bones or shield kids with vitamin D insufficiency from fractures.
Childhood fractures are a significant health concern globally. It affects over a third of children before age 18, potentially causing long-term disability or reduced quality of life. However, a recent study by Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and Queen Mary University of London found that vitamin D supplements do not improve bone strength or prevent fractures in children with vitamin D deficiency.
