The Vitamin D Council reported Sunday that the Stanley Cup finalists, Chicago Blackhawks, have been undergoing Vitamin D therapy for about 18 months. The team is playing better than ever, defeating the regular season champions, San Jose Sharks, 4 games in a row. The Blackhawks are seasoned athletes, but to dominate the best meant that they needed to be in near perfect shape.
Vitamin D has received tons or recognition in recent years because of widespread deficiency among Americans and the incredibly beneficial impact of supplementation. If professional athletes like the Chicago Blackhawks are deficient in Vitamin D, then it is surely time to address our bodies. The Vitamin D Council reported that the Blackhawks have noticed illnesses such as flu and colds become much less of a factor. In addition, injuries have become less severe and less frequent. So whether you are an athlete or just someone looking to stay healthy, there’s a good chance that Vitamin D is your answer.
