Older adults need twice as much vitamin D, group says
from Eat, Drink, and Be
According to one group, adults aren't getting nearly enough vitamin D. New guidelines released by the International Osteoporosis Foundation suggest older adults need about twice as much vitamin D than typically recommended. The U.S. Recommended Daily Allowance for adults ages 51 to 70 is 400 International Units of vitamin D per day; those 71 and older need 600 IU. The IOF, however, recommends adults age 65 and older aim for 800 to 1,000 IU per day.
