Beat Colds And Flu With Vitamin D
September 20, 2017
The winds are picking up, the rain is pouring, the nights are getting darker and yes, the heating is officially on – that’s right, it’s autumn! And with autumn comes the dreaded cold and flu season. Months of sneezing, coughing and stuffy heads, but there is a way to help keep these viral germs at bay – daily Vitamin D!
A study published in the British Medical Journal earlier this year found that taking Vitamin D supplements can help protect against acute respiratory infections like the common cold, flu and even pneumonia. As we know, Vitamin D is vital for bone and muscle health but it could have benefits beyond that when it comes to infections of the sinuses, throat, lungs, and airways.
Last year, Public Health England said that people were generally not getting the recommended 10 micrograms of Vitamin D a day from sunlight in autumn and winter. Our SunVit-D3 400 IU (10µg) Tablets or SunVit-D3 400 IU (10µg) Capsules are the perfect addition to your daily supplements to keep you feeling fit and healthy throughout the colder months.
Lead researcher Professor Martineau, from Queen Mary University of London, stated that “The bottom line is that the protective effects of vitamin D supplementation are strongest in those who have the lowest vitamin D levels and when supplementation is given daily or weekly rather than in more widely spaced doses.”
