Vitamin D Reduces the Risk of Respiratory Infections 21 June 2010
A study published in the June 2010 edition of the journal PLoS One has found that people who maintain a high level of vitamin D over winter reduced the risk of developing a viral respiratory tract infection and reduced the number of sick days even if one developed.
Take home message: It’s not a coincidence that “colds” seem to occur over the winter months when vitamin D levels drop with less sun exposure. I try and get out in the sun as much as possible over winter and take fermented cod liver oil daily which is high in vitamins A, D and K2. Vitamins A and D are crucial for the immune system. Vitamin K2 takes calcium from the arteries and returns it to the bones….soft arteries and hard bones.
