New research finds a supplement taking by millions of Americans to prevent brittle bone disease doesn't seem to work.

Americans spend hundreds of millions of dollars each year on Vitamin D.

They found higher levels of the vitamin did little to make bones stronger and prevent osteoporosis.

The research is published in the medical journal Lancet.
