This week we are focusing on vitamins. In Vital Signs for Cancer, Xandria Williams explains that ‘a lack of adequate amounts of vitamins and phytonutrients (nutrients found in plants) is a predisposing factor for cancer for many reasons. . .It can weaken your immune system, leave your body vulnerable to damaging oxidation reactions, deprive your cells of oxygen and reduce your energy production.’
'Vitamin D3 has been shown to be one of the most important vitamins in the fight against cancer, and at levels considerably higher than the usual recommended intake. Countless studies show that it is difficult to overcome cancer if you are deficient in this vitamin'*
In 2005 the BBC released a number of articles relating to this discovery. Click here to find out more.
Foods that are high in Vitamin D3 include:
Oily fish such as mackerel and cod liver
Our editorial team at Piatkus are trying to increase our Vitamin D3 intake so why don’t you join us!
