Thanks for the info. I'll keep this in mind since I usually don't bother getting flu shots.

Does vitamin D really help prevent the flu?

According to some very credible doctors, the answer if that it quite possibly can.

Dr. John Cannell, MD, says that the fact that influenza - more commonly known as
- is far more likely to strike during the winter months than any other time of the year is hardly a coincidence, and that the reason this is the case has to do with the fact that people are exposed to less sunlight, and therefore obtain less vitamin D, during colder months than they are during warmer months.

Vitamin D is produced when skin comes into contact with direct sunlight, so when temperatures are so low that most skin is covered up by bundles of clothing, it makes sense that lower temperatures result in reduced vitamin D production.

According to Cannell, this reduced vitamin D production places a person at greater risk of coming down with illnesses including but not limited to the flu.

He has a number of other very interesting things to say during the roughly six-and-a-half minute video, which can be viewed in its entirety on VitaminD3Blog.net, where the answer to this question is delved into in greater detail.
