Vitamin D continues to break new ground with new uses. A recent study comparing patients with seasonal allergies who used nasal steroids for the allergies and those who were taking Vit D along with the steroid. The results were significant. Vitamin D improved the outcome of steroid use within 24 hours.

This is just another in a long line of studies that are demonstrating the unusual power of this much overlooked vitamin. If you have not had your Vitamin D blood levels checked, please do so on your next doctors visit. You should be taking 2000 to 4000 IU’s per day.
