Vitamin D Plus Calcium Equals Longer Life

Vitamin D Plus Calcium Equals Longer Life

When vitamin D and calcium were taken together, the risk of death decreased
People who take vitamin D and calcium together may live longer, according to a recent analysis published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.

Vitamin confusion

Trying to sort out all of the research about the health effects of vitamin D and calcium may leave you more baffled than enlightened. For years, people were told to take calcium for bone health, but newer studies have linked calcium supplements with increased heart disease risk. And for all the positive studies about vitamin D, there are others that suggest that it's possible to get too much of a good thing.

Better together?

To find out more about the effects of vitamin D and calcium on longevity, researchers from around the world collaborated on a review of trials that studied the two nutrients.

Eight studies met the criteria for the analysis. The trials looked at the effects of vitamin D taken alone or in combination with calcium on mortality over the course of three years in 70,528 people. Most of the participants were women around 70-years-old.

Here's what the analysis showed:

  • Vitamin D taken alone did not appear to reduce the risk of death.
  • When vitamin D and calcium were taken together, the risk of death decreased by 7%.

The researchers suggested that calcium and vitamin D might work better in tandem than either works alone, possibly through an additive effect or through their ability to reduce the risk of several cancers.

"Calcium with vitamin D supplementation for elderly participants is overall not harmful to survival, and may have beneficial effects on general health," concluded the team.

Getting the nutrition you need

Adequate vitamin D status is linked to protection from a number of different chronic diseases, including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and multiple sclerosis.

For many seniors, getting enough vitamin D can be a challenge. Production of vitamin D in the skin decreases with age, and food sources (like egg yolks and fatty fish) can't be relied upon to provide as much vitamin D as the body needs. Taking a supplement might be a good idea for people with low blood levels of vitamin D. Talk with your doctor about how much vitamin D is right for you.

On the other hand, it's easier to get enough calcium from your diet, even if you're lactose intolerant. Sesame seeds, tofu, sardines, and corn tortillas made with lime have lots of it, as do leafy green vegetables like bok choy and kale.

Rated 4.4 out of 5★áby 21reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★áby great replacement for pill vitamins taste like candy... hardest thing is to only eat 2 a day.pink taste like the pink puffsorange taste like orange slices (candy)purple taste like grape... (this one is my least fav but I don't usually like grape candy).. still taste better than most gummy vitamins. 08/26/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★áby LOVE I always hated taking Calcium because the larger pills were so hard to take! I tried this at my grandmothers (she takes all gummy vitamins) and LOVED IT! I also love the taste! 07/31/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★áby Great! Best of all worlds! I talke a lot of vitamins and all are either gummies or sublingual because I have a hard time swallowing pills, and they give me indigestion. The taste of these gummies are great. In fact, I have noticed my husband sneaking one on several occasions when he wants something sweet. The most important thing, though, is the mg of calcium; plus the Vitamin D for absorption. This is the perfect product if you need calcium and can't take pills. 05/30/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★áby Great tasting My Aunt told me about these, so I thought I would try them. They taste so good It's hard to eat just one. Usually I get a upset stomache from taking any kind of vitamin, but these don't bother me at all. I would recommend these to friends and family members. 04/07/2013
Rated 1 out of 5★áby Horrible tasting I was excited to be able to find a chewable calcium because I have a hard time swallowing pills, but believe me these are the worst tasting things ever!! They are very large and chalky tasting! I bit into one and had to throw it out. My son also tried them and said they tasted awful--we ended up throwing the whole bottle away! 05/26/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★áby The best Calcium and most tasty I've ever tried!! I've tried a lot of Calcium products but this is by far the tastiest and (I love them.. sort of like a treat for me) that I've ever tried. I still have my other Calcium products that I HAVE TO TAKE ONLY BECAUSE I PAID FOR THEM SO I TAKE THEM IN BETWEEN THESE. I don't need to buy any more Calcium because I have plenty, BUT, these are so delicious I keep buying them. I hope they never stop making these because it will be a sad day for ME!Thanks Walmart for selling them and making them available for shipping. Shipping to Etown, KY is within 2 days of placing an order which is phenomenal! Awesome and I will keep ordering ÔÇŽ. 02/18/2014
