One of the most helpful vitamins I have come across in the last couple years to help prevent colds and flu in Effingham IL is vitamin D. Your bodies ability to produce natural antibiotics called antimicrobial peptides goes up and down throughout the year according to your vitamin D levels. Because the sun gives us plenty of vitamin D in the summer we stay healthier. However in the winter our levels of sun exposure goes down and so does the vit d serum in our blood. Therefore it's a good idea to supplement with vitamin D in the winter months to maintain the required amount our body needs to help us fight infection. And do not forget about the kids. Study's have shown that children taking vit d in the winter were 42% less likely to contract influenza compared to children taking a placebo. Everyone requires different amounts throughout the year so if you are interested in what amount works for you contact me on the website
