A Japanese study is the first clinical trial to test vitamin D against flu; children who took vitamin D were less likely to get one kind of flu!

Last year, American researchers who analyzed data from a survey of nearly 19,000 Americans (NHANES III) found that those with the lowest blood levels of vitamin D reported having significantly more recent colds or cases of the flu.

A Japanese team has just published the results of the very first controlled human trial designed to test vitamin D’s power to prevent the flu.

And the outcomes were encouraging: “This study suggests that vitamin D3 supplementation during the winter may reduce the incidence of influenza A.

This study among schoolchildren included a sharp drop in asthma attacks among the kids assigned to take vitamin D and also showed that kids taking vitamin D were 63% less likely to have developed influenza type A.

Interestingly enough, asthmatic children taking vitamin D were 83% less likely to suffer asthma attacks during the trial.

Actually on the topic of Vitamin D I just discovered that these days, with the progress in science and technology, performing a vitamin D test can be self-administered. It is not necessary to visit the doctor anymore to get this test performed. There are blood test spot kits available and you can take help of these kits to do it all by yourself. The finger is punctured at a spot to retrieve very small amounts of blood on a unique kind of paper. The result is not difficult to comprehend. I tested myself and found I did have a minor deficiency.
