Some recent studies are revealing that Vitamin D is the most important element in the body to fight cancer and a whole raft of other diseases. Vitamin D, or rather a steroid hormone substrate, is produced on exposure to the UVb light from the sun and circulates through the blood system enabling your immune system to respond where necessary.
Unfortunately, over the last few decades we’ve been told to fear the sun, and worse, to stay indoors or use sunscreen whenever we venture outside. But getting proper levels of Vitamin D helps your body fight cancer, Alzheimerâ€™s, heart disease, ms, diabetes and flu. The common cold is mainly active during winter, when exposure to the sun is at it’s year round lowest, and the more northerly people live, the more likely they are to catch a cold.
