Research Summary: Osteoporosis is a major public health problem among older adults. Given the significant healthcare costs of treating osteoporosis and its consequences, new strategies to maintain better bone health in older age are urgently needed. Vitamin D and calcium have well established preventive roles against osteoporosis, but other nutritional factors are emerging, with recent evidence suggesting important protective roles for folate and the metabolically related B vitamins. This study looked to evaluate the beneficial effects of B-vitamins in older adults at‐ristrisk of sub‐optimal B-vitamin status (due to genetics/low dietary intake).

SF Summarization: This study evaluated the beneficial effects of B-vitamins in older adults who are at risk of low B-vitamin intake due to genetics and diet.

Current Status: Completed

Stage: Clinical Study
