JBMR: Vitamin D does not improve the body’s muscle health. In the past, researchers did not know the effect of vitamin D supplements on the body’s muscle health.
Recently, an article was published in the international journal Journal of Bone and Mineral Research entitled “Vitamin D and Muscle Health: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis of In the “Randomized Placebo-Controlled Trials” research report, scientists from Aarhus University and other institutions have clarified through research whether vitamin D can improve the body’s muscle health?
Based on the analysis of existing data from all relevant randomized controlled clinical trials, the researchers found that vitamin D supplementation may not seem to have a beneficial effect on muscle function, strength or quality; in this research report, the researchers included 54 trials involving 8747 individuals. In general, in terms of improving muscle health, vitamin D does not seem to have any special benefits compared to placebo; on the contrary, vitamin D seems to have some adverse effects, that is, increasing the so-called timed to stand up and walk ( TUGT) time, while also reducing the body’s maximum strength when bending the knee, and tends to reduce the score of the simple physical fitness scale.
Lise Sofie Bislev, MD, said that we should be very cautious in recommending vitamin D supplements to improve the muscle strength and function of people with normal vitamin D status or with only slight impairment; however, we need further research to determine whether to supplement vitamin D in the later stage. It can improve the muscle function of people who are severely deficient in vitamin D.

In summary, the current evidence does not support the beneficial effects of vitamin D supplements on the body’s muscle health. On the contrary, vitamin D may also have negative health effects on muscle health. Therefore, people may need to supplement vitamin D. Consider or recognize this.
