Studies Show That Vitamin D Is Better than the Flu Shot

Sunlight: Your best source of Vitamin D

Sunlight: Your best source of Vitamin D

In The Journal of Clinical Nutrition, a study was published involving 430 children between the ages of six and 15. Half of the kids were given 1200 IU of vitamin D3 per day, the other half a placebo. At the end of the study, it was concluded that the vitamin D group was 43% less likely to come down with the flu.

Keep in mind that many experts believe that we should all be taking a minimum of 5000 IU of vitamin D3 on a daily basis. Imagine the results if that were the dosage given in the study! Most controlled studies indicate that the flu shot is simply not effective.

The Benefits of Vitamin D

The best way to get your daily boost of vitamin D is through sunshine, as this method synthesizes not only vitamin D3 but also vitamin D3 sulfate, which is linked to optimal cholesterol levels.

This nutrient is also instrumental in

  • Enhancement of the immune system
  • Increased energy levels
  • Mood stabilization
  • Protection of approximately 10% of the 30,000 genes in the body
  • Prevention of heart disease

Especially during the holidays, we tend to get run-down in many ways: too much sugar, not enough sleep, massive stress, and too little exercise. My advice? Get adjusted on a regular basis and get acquainted with the many gifts of vitamin D.
