Vitamins to Fight Off Infections

Scientists in England looked for any connection between dietary intake and use of supplemental vitamins, and incidence of respiratory infection.

They analyzed information from over 6,000 adults gathered over an 8-year period.

Results: There was a significant connection between intake of vitamins A, E, and D, and reduced risk of respiratory complaints of all types (viral infections, asthma, COPD, and other breathing disorders).
