A few small trials have found a reduction in influenza incidence and a reduction in general upper respiratory tract infections for those who took vitamin D compared to those who took placebo.

    The VitD levels before treatment were low and still were not at a level I have found helpful, around 50. If the seniors studied achieved a level of 50ish, I believe the results would have been better.
