Two recent randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials provide evidence that Vitamin D supplementation reduces the incidence of respiratory infections in children. Vitamin D, which regulates immune response, is made in human skin exposed to sunlight. Without supplementation, D levels decline during the dark days of winter- the season of colds and flu. Daily supplementation of Vitamin D3 has been proven essential for maintaining a healthy immune system.
