BBC News Reports Vitamin D Could Stop Colds And Flu 

 
The BBC reports (16th February 2017) that researchers claim vitamin D supplements could spare more than three million people from colds and flu in the UK each year.
     
  • The sunshine vitamin is vital for healthy bones, but also has a role in the immune system. 
  • The immune system uses vitamin D to make antimicrobial weapons that puncture holes in bacteria and viruses.
  • Vitamin D is made in the skin while out in the sun, many people have low levels during the winter.
 
Public Health England (PHE) says the infections data is not conclusive, although it does recommend supplements. These, it says, should be taken for improved bone and muscle health.
 
Vitamin D is available at the Orchard Clinic in liquid form, dosage is four drops a day taken in water with food or directly under the tongue or as professionally directed. 15ml costs £6.00.
 
Please call the clinic for further advice.
