STUDY: Vitamin D Outperforms Flu Shot…

A new study has shown researchers that taking vitamin D might well be a better option than receiving a flu shot. Researchers at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) examined respiratory tract infections, these ranged from simple colds to full-blown pneumonia. They found that 1 in every 33 people who supplemented with vitamin D were protected from respiratory tract infections. That number is 1 in 40 in concern with flu shots. That’s a staggering differential when you take into account the greater whole of the population.

Vitamin D has long been held as one of the essential supplements. Many people are vitamin D deficient and don’t know it. Due to sunscreens and a lack of sun exposure based on popular mainstream fears, people just don’t get enough vitamin D production from their own bodies. Vitamin D affects a range of bodily functions.

The tests on the vitamin D consumption to prevent infections yield diverse results. Consequently, the researchers pooled data on 11,321 people from 25 different trials to attain a conclusive outcome.

“Assuming a UK population of 65 million, and that 70 percent have at least one acute respiratory infection each year, then daily or weekly vitamin D supplements will mean 3.25 million fewer people would get at least one acute respiratory infection a year,” research member Prof Adrian Martineau, said.

Flu shots have long been condemned as ineffective. Typically, pharma’s excuses involve “multiple strains” as a way to justify efficacy failures.

Per the article cited earlier, there were critics.

There are reasonable arguments about the significance of the latest study. As per Prof Louis Levy, the head of nutrition science at PHE, the proof is inconsistent. There’s no enough evidence to reinforce the recommendation of vitamin D for respiratory tract infection risks’ reduction. Professor Martin Hewison, from the University of Birmingham and the Society for Endocrinology, however, expressed that the findings were impressive.

    My alternative physician has ‘prescribed’ 1000 mcg of B12 of the Methylcobalamin twice a Day with 100 MG of B6 once a day for the past 4 years but she said No folates…which apparently interfere with some assimilation of this or other supplements I take to recover from cancer surgery. They are separate,,not mixed. Methylacobalimin is better absorbed but cyanacobalamin is cheaper to make. Look online for different vitamin companies but…maybe a combo wouldn’t be so good for you either, and, once a month for 1000mcg of B12 is …probably…Never going to be enough or often enough. And NEVER…under Any circumstances take in Aluminum in any form as it goes right to the brain, it crosses the blood-brain barrier and Settles in the brain, causing much brain damage, adjuvants aren’t at all needed if taking suppliments anyway.

  2. That is what I ran into my doctor ordered D-3 10,000 units after she checked my D-3 levels which was 4!~ then I went to another doctor and he ordered 50,000 units of D once a day for two weeks! I checked with a friend PhD pharmacist and he said don’t fill because, in his opinion, it was very dangerous to take that much. So I didn’t. I started buying D-3 again at the health food store and have been on it for years but my D-3 still hasn’t come up to any further of 36 ! And I want it higher than that? I am Caucasian with fair skin and freckles. I try to get out in the Sun daily for 15 minutes, and I haven’t had my blood labs checked yet since summer but will…..I live in Michigan. Thank you for your report.
