The D Drops Company Inc. welcomes new research associating vitamin D deficiency to Upper Respiratory Tract Infections (URTI) - the "Common Cold"

    WOODBRIDGE, ON, Feb. 23 /CNW/ - Every year the average Canadian adult
will suffer from between 2 to 5 colds, making "common cold" or Upper
Respiratory Tract Infections (URTI) a leading cause of missed days in the
Canadian workplace. Today the Archives of Internal Medicine (Arch Intern Med.
2009; 169(4): 384-390) published a study showing that people with low levels
of vitamin D experience a higher number of URTI. Furthermore, the connection
between low vitamin D and the common cold was even stronger in those suffering
from chronic respiratory diseases, such as asthma, emphysema, and chronic
    Professor Reinhold Vieth of the Department of Nutritional Sciences at the
University of Toronto, and Director of Bone and Mineral Laboratory, Mount
Sinai Hospital Toronto, an internationally recognized expert on vitamin D,
commented, "It really is timely, when the common cold is at its peak, to see
more evidence that higher blood levels of vitamin D seem to protect against
respiratory infections. This was a large US survey, and while it doesn't prove
cause, it is an important part of the consistent pattern of evidence relating
vitamin D to fewer colds. That should make everybody at least start to think
about vitamin D."
    Chris Temovsky, Vice-President of The D Drops Company Inc. stated that,
"Once again, we have research evidence shining on the health benefits of
vitamin D. We are excited about this positive medical finding that helps raise
public awareness about vitamin D and how its role as a nutritional supplement
can help improve the health of Canadians. The D Drops Company Inc. is proud to
offer a unique format once-daily vitamin drop technology: Ddrops 1,000 IU, and
Baby Ddrops 400IU. All Ddrops brand products offer concentrated purified
