The data is clear- Vitamin D levels have a significant impact of the severity of COVID-19 illness and the hospitalization rates according Dr. Joseph Mercola. Here are some highlights.
“Based on vitamin D results from the preceding 12 months and SARS-CoV-2 test data from mid-March through mid-June 2020 from 191,779 patients from 50 U.S. states, people with a vitamin D level of at least 55 ng/mL (138 nmol/L) had a 47% lower SARS-CoV-2 positivity rate compared to those with a level below 20 ng/mL (50 nmol/L)…. Having a vitamin D level below 30 ng/mL also approximately doubles your risk of being hospitalized with COVID-19, Israeli researchers found.”
In addition to maintaining optimal Vitamin D levels there are other important micronutrients which are also very important in the COVID-19 pandemic. I highly recommend the Orthomolecular Society COVID 19 Resource page. There is a wealth of information including lectures and protocols that can be used by everyone.
Vitamin D supplementation is readily available. In addition you may come to the office and have Vitamin D injections in order to rapidly increase your blood levels of this valuable nutrient.
