The Easiest Way to Prevent Colds and Flu

I pick a beautiful, sunny day here in NC to bring you this article from the HuffingtonPost.com. Higher levels of Vitamin D are associated with a lower risk of catching colds and flu. I take 5000 IUs daily, and I think in the last 4 years I have had perhaps 2 very light colds. I am out and about every day in the community too---just going to the Y for a workout, those places are germ factories! I'm a huge believer in adequate Vitamin D levels---and for those of you new to the blog, Vitamin D is actually a prohormone, not a Vitamin.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, everyone!
