Scientific evidence points to the fact that taking high doses of Vit C does not help in avoiding the common cold; however, it does reduce it's impact by 20%.

I try to get the vitamins and anti-oxidants from the food I eat, so I'll make sure I introduce different types of foods in my diet. The only supplement I take is Vit D during the Winter months because I live in Canada and I know I'm lacking this particular vitamin.

Yes I think the best idea is to get your vitamins through diet. It would be interesting to have my vitamin D levels checked 13.gif Although if you get enough sun on your skin in the summer you can store a whole year worth of vitamin D so I'm hoping that's true.

Must be...I don't buy the maple-flavoured bacon for just that reason.

I have the sniffles too, I wonder if it's because the house is closed up during the Winter and it's dry inside?

I tried to find the info on that, but there's so much! gaah.gif Here's a whole bunch of Vitamin D articles http://vitamind.mercola.com/

Yes US, dry air inside is a real bitch. We keep a window open at all times to get some fresh air, throughout winter and all. It gets pretty warm in here anyway.

Hm.

Scientific evidence points towards our self-appointed
overlords being damned sneaky about the global Codex Alimentarius
and its totally non-transparent, thoroughly undemocratic
implementation worldwide.

Just saying.

Also worth another mention:

Quote:However, the vitamin D3 that is formed is on the surface of your skin does not immediately penetrate into your bloodstream. It actually needs to be absorbed from the surface of your skin into your bloodstream. The critical question then is: how long does it take the vitamin D3 to penetrate your skin and reach your bloodstream? If you're thinking about an hour or two, like I did until recently, you're wrong. Because new evidence shows it takes up to 48 hours before you absorb the majority of the vitamin D that was generated by exposing your skin to the sun!

Therefore, if you shower with soap, you will simply wash away much of the vitamin D3 your skin generated, and decrease the benefits of your sun exposure. So to optimize your vitamin D level, you need to delay washing your body with soap for about two full days after sun exposure. Now, few are not going to bathe for two full days. However you really only need to use soap underneath your arms and your groin area, so this is not a major hygiene issue. You'll just want to avoid soaping up the larger areas of your body that were exposed to the sun.

Quote:makes vitamin D different from other vitamins that fuel bodily processes rather than direct them. As a fat-soluble vitamin, excess vitamin D is stored in the body's fatty tissues rather than being excreted through the kidneys like water-soluble vitamins, such as vitamin C and the various B vitamins.

So, Octo this may explain your previous idea about Vit D remaining in the body over the Wintertime.

Yes! And this is also interesting:

Quote:The "sunshine" vitamin, aptly named because sunlight is a source of it, is actually a hormone.
