Conquer Cancer With This Vitamin Cure

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

Avoiding breast cancer is getting harder to do.

Even if you’re not one of the 300,000 American women and men that will be diagnosed this year, there’s a great chance this deadly disease will affect the life of someone you love.

As scary as diagnosis is, it’s survival that really matters when dealing with breast cancer.

Fortunately, there’s a cheap, easy and now scientifically backed natural way to increase your chances of surviving this common killer by almost 30 percent.

And the best part… it’s free and available everywhere.

This miracle nutrient is vitamin D, and it should come as no shock that it’s proven to help fight yet another type of cancer.

For this latest study, researchers looked at data on over 1,600 breast cancer patients. For seven years, the scientists tested the participants’ blood levels for vitamin D and tracked their health status.

At the end of the study, the researchers were amazed by what they found…

Women with the highest levels of vitamin D had a significantly greater chance of surviving breast cancer than those who had low levels.

In fact, after putting a pencil to the data, they found that women with the highest levels of vitamin D had about a 30 percent better chance of survival than those with the lowest.

But what the good news didn’t end there…

They went on to find that this effect is doubled in premenopausal women. This means having a healthy level of vitamin D could slash your chances of dying from breast cancer by 30–60 percent.

So how do you get vitamin D?

Here’s where the free part comes in… the sun!

Vitamin D is produced naturally in your body through sun exposure. Ten–15 minutes of daily sun exposure should put your vitamin D levels on the rise.

If you’re an indoor dweller or can’t get out because of the weather, vitamin D can also be obtained by eating food like fatty fish and egg yolks.

The only problem is you may not get enough sunlight or eat enough of these foods to keep your vitamin D levels in the cancer-fighting range.

The best way to ensure you’re getting enough is through supplementation. Be sure to choose a supplement that contains vitamin D in its natural form — D-3. Although this method isn’t free, it’s definitely worth the investment should you ever come against breast cancer.

Live well,
