Vitamin D Over Amoxicillin

Two studies looking at respiratory tract infections give credence to Vitamin D over amoxicillin. The first study found that for patients where pneumonia is not suspected, “amoxicillin provides little benefit for acute lower-respiratory-tract infection in primary care both overall and in patients aged 60 years or more, and causes slight harms.”

The second study divided a group of adults into two groups: those that took Vitamin D3 (4000 IU) every day for a year and those that were given a placebo.  “The overall (respiratory tract) infectious score was significantly reduced for patients allocated to the vitamin D group compared with the placebo group.”

These results, when taken together, provide an interesting picture of the potential health through nutrition rather than drugs.
