Blackhawks Win! Credit Vitamin D?

June 10, 2010

Well, they hockey team I grew up rooting for growing up in Chicago (I was joking that I was a fan so long ago, it was before the Espositos went to the Bruins) has won the Stanley Cup for the first time in almost 50 years.

Fitting now that I post about their being the first ‘Vitamin D’ team to win a championship.

The Chicago Blackhawks are the First Vitamin D Team in Modern Professional Sports Historyfrom the Vitamin D council ont he subject.

Wonder if Dr. Joseph Mercola had anything to do with this (having his practice in Chicago, and all).

No doubt will inspire others.

By the way, if you want to see the clinical evidence, take a look:

Athletic performance and vitamin D
CONCLUSIONS: Vitamin D may improve athletic performance in vitamin D-deficient athletes. Peak athletic performance may occur when 25(OH)D levels approach those obtained by natural, full-body, summer sun exposure, which is *at least* 40ng/mL
