    Effects of vitamin D supplementation on strength, physical performance, and falls in older persons: a systematic review.
    Latham NK, Anderson CS, Reid IR.
    J Am Geriatr Soc. 2003 Sep;51(9):1219-26. Review.
    PMID: 12919233
    DOI: 10.1046/j.1532-5415.2003.51405.

    Conclusion: Although there is insufficient evidence that vitamin D supplementation alone improves physical performance in older people, some data suggest a benefit from vitamin D combined with calcium supplementation, but this requires confirmation in large, well-designed trials.

    Vitamin D supplementation improves neuromuscular function in older people who fall.
    Dhesi JK, Jackson SH, Bearne LM, Moniz C, Hurley MV, Swift CG, Allain TJ.
    Age Ageing. 2004 Nov;33(6):589-95.

    CONCLUSIONS: vitamin D supplementation, in fallers with vitamin D insufficiency, has a significant beneficial effect on functional performance, reaction time and balance, but not muscle strength. This suggests that vitamin D supplementation improves neuromuscular or neuroprotective function, which may in part explain the mechanism whereby vitamin D reduces falls and fractures.
