Sunshine Is The Ultimate Cold And Flu Fighter

January 22, 2013 by  

Are you looking for some extra protection against colds and flu? Studies show it may be as simple as stepping out in the sunshine and soaking up some healing rays.

It’s been scientifically proven that vitamin D is necessary to help your body absorb calcium to build stronger bones. But this study now reveals that people with higher levels of vitamin D had considerably fewer cases of colds and flu than the folks with lower levels of the essential vitamin.

Therefore, the findings “support an important role for vitamin D in the prevention of common respiratory infections, such as colds and the flu,” according to researcher Adit Ginde, M.D., M.P.H., of the University of Colorado in Denver.

The best part is your body produces vitamin D when it’s exposed to sunlight. So doesn’t it make sense to allow a little sunshine to soak into your body in order to boost your ability to build stronger bones, but also benefit your resistance against infectious respiratory bugs? You bet it does.

Studies show the flu shots are, at best, ineffective. Anti-flu measures that really work include increasing in sun exposure, Vitamin D supplementation, avoiding sugar, eating a healthy diet of fresh fruits and vegetables, exercise, and adequate sleep.
