The Swine Flu and Vitamin D
I read a report recently that states that Vitamin D is one of the BEST ways to protect yourself from the flu... yes, even the Swine flu that everyone is so concerned about.
In fact, Vitamin D is one of the best things you can do for your body to PREVENT CANCER!!!
Vitamin D helps your body to absorb Calcium, and your body needs calcium also to ward off bone loss and osteoporosis.
So, go outside and soak up the rays (in healthy doses) because the sunshine helps our bodies to produce Vitamin D... not sure how, but it does!
Try to find foods that have naturally occurring vitamin D because the kind of vitamin D that you get in your daily vitamin isn't always a natural source, and your body may not be able to absorb it properly.
I hope this info is as valuable to you as it is to me!
