Vitamin D3 Benefits | Prevent the Flu with Vitamin D3

November 21, 2019

Vitamin D can prevent the flu.
Check this out! A study was published in which they did
a placebo-controlled trial with school children. And they gave half the kids vitamin D, 1200 international units per day,
and the other half placebo. The group of kids taking vitamin D every
day had almost half as many cases of the flu as the group of kids who didn’t take
vitamin D. So what does that tell you?
Take vitamin D! It’s good.
It has so many benefits to the body. And now we know it can reduce your risk
of getting the flu. I personally take about 5000
international units per day and my kids take it as well.
We give them about 1200 international units per day.
And I’ve found that the easiest way to do it is just to buy it in liquid form
and give it to them in a dropper. It has no taste.
They don’t complain. It’s super easy.
And that’s how we do it.

    So many variables involved in that study, this doesn’t really prove vitamin D prevents the flu. What did the children eat? How many exposures did they have to people that were sick? What was their bloodwork before and after the study?

    I didn’t see enough data to show an actual correlation between vitamin d and it preventing the flu.

    Do you have a link to the study? Just recently seen the critical review of studies on vitamin d (and on the superpowers of nuts btw) on VegSource. 🤔…

    Interesting. I don’t take vitamin D supplements, but do consume vitamin D fortified foods and some that have natural levels in my plant based diet. I also do not get flus. I don’t get flu shots, either. Of course, I may be an exception, but I have heard information against vitamin D supplements by Dr.John McDougall and Dr.Pamela Popper, who made pretty convincing cases. That is the only thing that I am on the fence about taking. My blood tests are good, and I feel healthy and have been told I look younger every year!

    Also take 5000 Vitamin C daily. My doctor also has me take Elderberry syrup daily to avoid getting sick during flu season.

    This is true! We take vitamin d in the fall and winter and rarely get sick now. Last year, we had caught a virus so many times and we were practically sick for the entire fall/winter. It was depressing ….but we have 10 in our family so we take longer for us all to get through an illness. This year only one sickness vs 8!!! That's a win for me!

    I def’ up my Vitamin D3 and Vitamin C during fall and winter season, and when many people are getting their “Flu-shots”( while they are spreading the flu because they shed the 🦠 virus). Also drink a lot of Echinacea tea with Elderberry, ginger and lemon during fall and winter season. Haven’t been sick yet, although I have been around many who have been 👍🏼

    Thanks for the tip!!

    Vitamin D deficiency is a risk factor for cancer! Chris, you talk about it in SQUARE ONE – maybe worth of mentioning here as well 😉

  • Reply Drew Miller February 4, 2019 at 4:19 pm

    More reason to eat high quality animal foods. You need a balanced spectrum of fat soluble vitamins to absorb that Vit D in the first place. Perhaps you should mention that in the video….

    Chris – your on a roll brother! Where do you buy your vitamin D3/D3 droppers? Thank you.

    Can you take vit d on its own or do you need vit k with it? Thanks

    Chris thank for the info. I was really wondering if you could tell me your thoughts on Smart Fruit?

    I went Whole Food Plant Based 4 years ago this month & haven’t gotten even a little cold since 😃 I feel like I have a sheet of armor around me because I have literally had people cough right next to me w/out covering there mouths, sick children sneeze on me – & I’m fine! What’s really impressive is that I have a chronic injury, so I’m in pain & never sleep well & have a lot of stress associated with it – so one would think that my immune system would be lower than normal, but nope! 😃

    In a recent blood test, they found that I was so below the range, my Vit D was not even measurable. I am taking 1200IUs/day now until it gets back into the normal range.

    I take three vitamin D3 supplements 3 times a day which makes it 3000 IU with zinc supplements. Does vitamin D3 with zinc supplements prevent cancer or cure it if you have the disease? Some help me out please!

    I was Vitamin D Deficient! Standard ranges are 40-100. Mine were 12.6!!!
    Dangerously low! I had all the symptoms. Hair loss, Bone Pain, Memory loss, worst of all..Inability to lose weight. Click & watch my video I posted & you’ll see how I gained weight quickly bc of the deficient. I’m going to post my story soon. Please like and subscribe to my channel. Take D3 with K2 for more effectiveness & proper absorption!!!

    Shouldn’t D come from a real source? Not synthetic……

    My naturopath doctor has prescribed 12000 iu for my initial treatment for breast cancer, however oncologist told me to stop it as it also has vitamin k2 which would be too high a dosage to take. Is this true?

    Hey Chris what brand of vitamin d3 you recommend please

  • Reply creativecompanion August 4, 2019 at 6:10 pm

    The supplements I've seen seem come from fish or sheep/lanolin. Anyone know of a plant based Vit D supplements? Thx!
