ABSTRACT
The article focuses on 18 randomized controlled trials (RCTs) that assessed the effects of vitamin D supplementation on all-cause mortality. Published reports of RCTs found out that 4777 deaths occurred in the 18 trials. Meta-analysis of all trials showed that use of vitamin D supplements decreased the risk for all-cause mortality. Meta-analysis of the 9 trials with sufficient power showed similar results. Vitamin D supplementation reduced all-cause mortality in adults and older individuals.
