    Default Vitamin D Boosts Chances Of Walking After Hip Fracture

    I'm a great advocate for vitamin D in a variety of situations, but a dose of 800 IUs is patently absurd. That level is merely a whisker above an actual deficiency. Wait one minute, i'll try to find a source I saw a recently that makes my point .

    I knew you would respond to that Islander! I totally agree. So many reccs for vitamins and minerals are at a basic survival rate, not improved health.
