(NaturalNews) Vitamin D prevents flu. Vitamin D has been shown to help prevent hair loss, reduce back pain, grow bones, prevent osteoporosis, and even prevent dozens of types of cancer. Vitamin D has been called the "antibiotic vitamin" by the journal, Science News, because of its recognized ability to build immunity. An editorial in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition published in 2007 entitled "The urgent need to recommend an intake of vitamin D that is effective" was co-signed by nutritionists from around the world, including those from Mount Sinai Hospital, Harvard School of Public Health, Brigham and Women`s Hospital, Tufts University, University of Toronto, University of London, and the University of Helsinki.

Vitamin D Prevents the Flu
Research has shown that vitamin D intake prevents the flu. A study published in the journal Epidemiology and Infection in 2007 showed vitamin D significantly reduced the number of viral infections. In the study group of 104 participants, only one person in the entire group came down with an infection, compared to the control group who had three infections EACH. The 104 people who took vitamin D had a total of one viral infection (1:104) compared to the control group who had a total of 312 (312:104).

Vitamin D Deficiency Leads to a Variety of Diseases
Numerous research studies have shown that vitamin D deficiency is associated with a wide range of diseases including: acne, adrenal insufficiencies, Alzheimer's disease, asthma, autism, autoimmune diseases, allergies, osteoarthritis, osteomalacia, osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, many forms of cancer including colorectal and ovarian, Crohn's disease, chronic fatigue, cystic fibrosis, tuberculosis, depression, seasonal affective disorder (SAD), diabetes, gluten intolerance, Graves' disease, heart disease, hypertension, kidney disease, lupus, multiple sclerosis, obesity, Parkinson's disease, psoriasis, and urinary incontinence.

Vitamin D and Bone Pain
Vitamin D has also been shown to reduce back pain in 22 varied studies. Over 3,000 participants showed a reduction in musculoskeletal pain of 48 to 100 percent.

Vitamin D and Hair Loss
Vitamin D is used by the hair follicles, which is where hair begins its growth cycle. Research has shown that vitamin D intake can help grow hair and prevent hair loss.
