Research Has Begun!
Preliminary data is starting to come out of southern Asia, and researchers are crunching the numbers. What they've found shows that there is a correlation between sufficient Vitamin D levels in the blood and COVID-19 outcome or severity. That just means it's possible that having enough vitamin D in your bloodstream might coincide with a milder case if you do get sick. There's no cure or prevention for COVID-19 so make sure to follow guidelines set forth by the CDC.
Vitamin D Comes From the Sun, Right?
Vitamin D can be generated by the body through skin exposure to sun, however, most people are deficient. If you are young, live near the equator, and spend hours in the sun daily then you don't have to worry. Most of us should be taking a Vitamin D supplement.
Three Things to Remember
1) A higher quality vitamin can be formulated to absorb better (which could save you money in the long run - why take pill that don't work?)
2) It's never too late to start. Vitamin D deficiency is linked with MANY health problems including Multiple Sclerosis. If you're not taking some, start now. Just make sure to get regular physicals with your doctor to monitor your vitamin D levels with blood tests.
3) We are NOT claiming any cure or immunity to COVID-19. We are interested in research and encourage you to support your immune system with vitamins, eating well, getting enough sleep, and regular exercise. The best way to handle the pandemic is to heed guidelines set by the CDC and your local health authority.
