NaturalNews Tip of the day (from Mike):   

Looking for a good source of vitamin D? Sunshine remains the best because it's natural and self-regulating (your body won't ever make too much vitamin D when exposed to the sun). But high-quality fish oils and vitamin D supplements are a perfectly good second choice for the winters when sunshine isn't readily available. Interestingly, even tanning beds have been proven to boost your body's production of vitamin D.


Dear NaturalNews readers,

There is an epidemic of vitamin D deficiency sweeping the world, and now we know why this is so important: New research reveals that vitamin D "arms" the immune system T cells, allowing them to protect you from invading microorganisms.

It gets even better: Vitamin D prevents cancer, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, osteoporosis and much more. Read the latest on vitamin D in my feature article here:
