In a nutshell: This review examined the falls literature over a fifteen year period. The effects of vitamin D on muscles and the central nervous system are discussed as major factors in reducing fall and bone fracture rates. Based on this evidence, the authors recommend prescribing elderly patients 800 IU of vitamin D daily and the integration of vitamin D supplementation into primary and secondary fall prevention strategies.
