You have probably seen several pharmacies and commercials encouraging you to get the flu shot. Is the flu shot really the most effective treatment? What if you want to fight the flu without the flu shot?
Influenza kills as many as 50,000 to 70,000 people annually in the United States alone. Of even greater concern is that annual influenza deaths have been on the rise, increasing substantially over the last two decades (Thompson et al., 2003). However, vitamin C in high enough doses has already been shown to be very effective at eradicating the influenza virus.
Vitamin C is an essential nutrient for humans. Vitamin C contributes to immune defense by supporting and directly stimulating various cellular functions of the immune system.

Vitamin D Shown to Fight Influenza (Flu)
Dr. John Cannell, the founder of the Vitamin D Council, was one of the first to introduce the idea that vitamin D deficiency may actually be an underlying CAUSE of influenza.
The largest nationally representative study of its kind to date discovered that people with the lowest vitamin D levels indeed reported having significantly more colds or cases of the flu. In conclusion, lead author Dr. Adit Ginde stated:
“The findings of our study support an important role for vitamin D in the prevention of common respiratory infections, such as colds and the flu.”
TaylorMDFormulations’ Vitamin D Rx™
Vitamin D, sometimes called the sunshine vitamin, is naturally produced by the body as a response to sun exposure. Vitamin D can also be consumed by food and supplements such as Vitamin D Rx™. Vitamin D Rx™ can be helpful to those suffering from a vitamin D deficiency.
Vitamin D Rx™ contains micellized vitamin D3 that may help support healthy vitamin D levels. Micellization increases the absorption of fat-soluble vitamin D, by making it water-soluble. It promotes immune, cardiovascular, breast and pancreas health. Vitamin D may support normal sleep patterns while improving neuromuscular function, bone health, and mood.
