    Default A Good Vitamin D Status Can Protect Against Cancer

    A good vitamin D status is beneficial both in cancer prevention and in the prognosis of several cancers, according to a new research review. The anti-cancer effects of vitamin D are especially pronounced in the prevention and treatment of colon cancer and blood cancers.

    My view of vitamin C as a panacea is quickly being altered in favor of vit. D3 as the ultimate panacea. Although labeled a vitamin, D3 is converted into an active hormone--called calcitriol--by the liver and kidneys. As a hormone, D3 influences almost every biological function in the body. One of its greatest benefits is its regulation of the immune system, which is one primary way it protects against cancer. I've long held that if given the choice of only one vitamin it would be vitamin C. But, I'm not so sure anymore.

    Agree, they are both part of my daily vitamin regimen. I just have to remember to make sure I take all the important co-factor supplements that enhances their activity. As we know, it's not just how much you take but how much is absorbed by the body. As we age, conversion and absorption of nutrients become less efficient.
