What vitamins should a women in her 50s take?

None: Most of the recent studies fail to support taking a multivitamin unless you have known deficiencies, which are fairly uncommon.

I assume your physician diagnosed that you are Vitamin D deficient and/or you have significant Osteoporosis. If that is the case then this dose of Vitamin D, usually given once a week, is fine. People should NOT take high doses of Vitamin D on their own as too much Vitamin D is harmful. ...Read more
