According to recent research, Adults with a Vitamin D deficiency are at a greater risk of getting a severe case of COVID-19.
Considering the prevalence of Vitamin D deficiency, this is not good news for a world going through a viral pandemic. Thankfully there is a simple solution for this problem — Supplementing with Vitamin D.
It does appear that Vitamin D confers some protection against severe Covid infection. From my clinical experience, 5,000 units of Vitamin D per day is a usually enough and is generally safe for most adults. Having said that, lower blood levels of vitamin D could wind you up with a prescription for a larger dose, so getting a blood test for Vitamin D can be useful. Also, anyone with an underlying kidney condition should first discuss taking Vitamin D with a physician.
