The Chicago Blackhawks ice hockey team are the first “Vitamin D” team in modern professional sports history!
On Sunday night, with six minutes to go, the Blackhawks overcame a 2-0 deficit to defeat the San Jose Sharks 4-2 and advance to their first Stanley Cup Finals appearance in 18 years. Not only that, it was a clean sweep for the unheralded Blackhawks, for so long a forgotten team amongst the super teams like San Jose, Montreal and Philadelphia.
Guess what their SECRET WEAPON is? Good old Vitamin D-3.

According to my sources, the Chicago Blackhawks team physicians began diagnosing and treating vitamin D deficiency in all Blackhawk players about 18 months ago. Apparently most players are on 5,000 IU per day, some even more.
After many losing seasons, last year the Blackhawks came from out of nowhere to get to the Western conference finals. This year they are playing even better.
Improved athletic performance is only one of the benefits for the Blackhawks players. The other is a reduction in the number and severity of colds and flu and a reduction in the number and severity of repetitive-use injuries.
This is all because of daily Vitamin D-3 ingestion and at the far higher levels that notable researchers are now advocating.
Six months ago, Runner’s World published a story on vitamin D and physical performance.
Running on D: The “sun vitamin” may boost performance, but you probably aren’t getting enough. Runners World, December 2009.
A year ago, May 2009, the flagship journal of the American College of Sports Medicine was the first journal to publish the theory that vitamin D would improve athletic performance.

The World’s Most Powerful Vitamin D-3 Formula
with Vitamin K-2 & Powerful Bio-Factors
You don’t have to be a super-jock or professional ice hockey player to reap the extraordinary benefits of daily Vitamin D3 ingestion. Hundreds of our customers are raving about how their immune system resistance to colds, the flu, bone density and even fighting advanced cancer and leukemia is so much better now that they are taking our special formulas.
We recently made our flagship D3+K2 formula even more powerful (as if that could be possible!)
Vitamin D3+K2 has always contained 5,000 iu’s of vitamin D-3. It now contains 45 mg’s of Vitamin K-2 (MK-7), which is exactly the same dosage that the major Japanese drug companies use for their prescription-only osteoporosis drug (at $189 a bottle.)
We then added a super-concentration of vital “bio-factors” that dramatically increase the power of both the D-3 and the K-2. (Zinc, Magnesium, Boron and trace minerals, along with powerful Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Beta Carotene.)
It’s a true blockbuster in every sense of the word.
If you know anyone at the Chicago Blackhawks headquarters, get them a bottle immediately and they’ll be guaranteed to be the team lifting the Stanley Cup in a few week’s time!
