If you’re like me, you know quite a few people who are missing work or school right now because they have the flu (’tis the season!). That’s why this story caught my attention: because I don’t want the flu!
Queen Mary University of London did a study recently that gave pretty compelling evidence about how vitamin D supplements might protect people from the flu and colds.
14 countries (including the United States) were involved in the study: with 11,000 participants in 25 clinical trials.
The results of the study are pretty simple: if you have low vitamin D levels, taking vitamin D supplements daily or weekly will help prevent colds and the flu.
I guess I’ll be swinging by the pharmacy on the way home!
