Does vitamin D prevent the swine (H1N1) and seasonal flu, or the common cold?

Q. Does vitamin D prevent the swine (H1N1) and seasonal flu, or the common cold?

A. Its not clear whether vitamin D specifically protects against H1N1, a novel virus, but theres growing evidence that it does protect against a number of respiratory infections - and that many Americans do not get enough of the vitamin.

One study showed that people taking supplements containing 2,000 international units of vitamin D a day suffered fewer respiratory infections than those not taking supplements. Another study showed the obverse - that people with low blood levels of vitamin D were somewhat more likely to have had a recent upper respiratory tract infection than people with higher levels (24 percent vs. 17 percent).
