The most powerful cancer fighter ever discovered is naturally-occurring vitamin D. One study found that low vitamin D significantly increases overall cancer risk.  While another study showed that the vitamin D you make from sunshine lowers your chances of dying from 15 kinds of cancer.

Another study found that vitamin D can lower the chance you’ll get cancer by 77% and production in the skin decreases the likelihood you’ll get the following cancers:

  • stomach
  • colorectal
  • liver
  • gallbladder
  • pancreas
  • lung
  • breast
  • prostate
  • bladder
  • kidney cancers

Vitamin D also enhances mood; boosts your immune system; prevents bone and muscle weakness; fights heart disease; prevents diabetes; fights arthritis, pain and inflammation; prevents Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis.

The easiest, safest and cheapest way (it’s free) to increase the amount of vitamin D your body produces is through regular exposure to sunlight, which is not easy, especially during the winter months. Many nutritionists therefore recommend 5,000 IU every day with the D3 form especially important.
