Riassunto

Gli adulti necessitano di una dose giornaliera di vitamina D oscillante tra le 400 e le 1000 U. I., a seconda degli stili di vita e della esposizione solare, quest’ultima molto spesso ridotta. Esistono in commercio numerosi preparati in grado di fornire tale apporto. La somministrazione della vitamina D, oltre a migliorare la salute scheletrica, determina anche effetti extrascheletrici, tra cui, per esempio, l’aumento della forza muscolare, in grado di prevenire le cadute.
