Vitamin C to fight influenza

Posted by Swati S.

Apart from its usual benefits, Vitamin C is also believed to helpful in fighting influenza. I do not quite understand how. I have learned that it is said to stimulate anti-bodies that help our body fight influenza. But I would definitely suggest speaking to your doctor before getting stare on anything. Also, would like to hear from you in case you know anything about this.

Vitamin D is one of the most important and overlooked nutrients for fighting and preventing colds and flu. A research study showed that 2000 IU's of Vitamin D per day virtually eliminates colds and flu.

Several researchers now believe that the flu is actually CAUSED by low Vitamin D levels in the blood and that's why the flu ONLY comes around during the winter!
