Vitamin D supplementation to healthy children lacking standard vitamin D level in body, doesn’t contribute to bone density to any part of the body, revealed by a review published in The Cochrane Library.

Dr Tania Winzenberg, the study leader of the Menzies Research Institute, Tasmania, denying any bone density to healthy children through vitamin D supplementations, however said that vitamin D supplementation contributes bone density to some extent to children lacking the standard level of vitamin D in their blood.

Constitution of bone density in children helps them protect from osteoporosis, a medical condition in which the physical bones become fragile and weak. Vitamin D supplements the shortage of calcium to body which enables bone mineral density. Bone density symbolizes the strength of the bone and amount of minerals stored at different parts of the body.

Osteoporosis is mainly caused by low bone mineral density, and the research indicates that childhood is the phase of life where 90 percent of bone mass is built thus increasing bone density level during childhood could be a contributory factor to minimize the risk of future osteoporosis.
Vitamin D is a contributory factor in bone density of the body and so, children lacking vitamin D has poor bone density and are vulnerable to osteoporosis syndromes.

“Bone density measurement helps you assess how well an intervention like vitamin D supplementation develops bone health,” said Dr Winzenberg.
