New Study Shows Vitamin D Cuts Flu by Nearly 50%
A new study has shown that vitamin D is a highly effective way to avoid influenza. In fact, children taking low doses of Vitamin D3 were shown to be 42% less likely to come down with the illness.
Although the study itself did not make any comparison with vaccination, some reports are pointing out that the research shows Vitamin D outperforms flu vaccinations. Others have noted that the research might have shown an even greater effect if the study had used higher doses.
According to Gaia Health:
“When one considers the risks inherent in flu vaccines and antiviral drugs, the prevention of influenza through Vitamin D’s immune system boosting is certainly far superior to vaccination.”
