Fight the flu with vitamin D supplements
From the Chicago Daily Herald Online-----further evidence that Vitamin D boosts your immune system! Again, be sure to check with your doctor before starting/increasing a supplement (just because something is over the counter doesn't mean there is no risk---vitamins and supplements can interact with medications). I take 5000 IU's daily (per my doctor) and in the last three years, I have had two very light colds (about 24 hours in duration) and no flu illnesses.
