  • STORY AT-A-GLANCE

    • Based on data from 191,779 American patients, 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)
    • Based on data from 7,807 Israelis, those with a vitamin D level above 30 ng/mL (75 nmol/L) had a 58% to 59% lower risk of testing positive for SARS-CoV-2 compared to those with a vitamin D level below 29 ng/mL (74 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
    • Spanish researchers found giving hospitalized COVID-19 patients supplemental calcifediol (a vitamin D3 analog) in addition to standard of care lowered ICU admissions from 50% to 2% and eliminated deaths
    • An August 2020 study found patients who had a vitamin D level below 12 ng/mL (30 nmol/L) had a 6.12 times higher risk of severe disease requiring invasive mechanical ventilation, and a 14.7 times higher risk of death compared to those with a vitamin D level above 12 ng/mL

  • I swear this is the hundredth nutrient I've seen advertised as massively lowering your risk of getting COVID.

    It's probably just a case of "malnourished people are unhealthy" and "unhealthy people are more likely to get sick".

  • Started D3, Elemental Zinc, Elderberry, and B-Complex on Saturday.  I don’t know which one, if not all, were missing from my diet, but I immediately felt 100 times better than normal after starting the regimen.  I highly recommend the same.  We will need our strength going into whatever it is that is on the horizon this Fall and Winter.

    I’m not so sure on this one.  My own doctor has me on vit. D because I have several risk factors for getting COVID.

    Years ago my doctor put me on Vit D. Not being a medication on prescription there was nothing in it for her. I had to take 5 a day for a month, then 4/day/month and so on till I was on 1 a day, still today. I never even so much as catch a cold.

    The superior way to get Vit d is through exposure of the bare skin to sunlight, but older skin does not work so well as younger skin. When your on a good thing stick to it. It’s cheap and easy to take.

    Sounds expensive, but worth it.

  • Vitamin D3 is the most inexpensive supplement that has the most benefit in my opinion.  Low levels are associated with a much higher risk of certain cancers, most especially colon.  Had my level checked a few years ago and it was below 10. My doctor put me on 6,000 units a day and within 6months it was in a normal range. I recommend everybody get your level checked. Many doctors from the very beginning of this covid stuff said vitamin D3 played a major role in the recovery and well being of patients with many illnesses, not just covid.

  • D3 functions as a hormone and an immune modulator. It will strongly support a normal immune response but also suppresses an over-reaction of the immune system (cytokine storm) as well.

  • Same here, vit. D complex + vit. D3. April of 2019 I landed in hosp. with a bad flu and pneumonia.  In retrospect, it had all the symptoms of COVID including loss of taste and smell, shortness of breath, high fever.  I had to go on O2 for several days.  I drove myself there but needed help to get from the car to the door.  I nearly passed out and they had to send an orderly with a wheelchair.  I was there for 10 days.  At the time I lived in a building where nearly everyone was Chinese from China, recent immigrants who made frequent trips back and forth.  I did take a COVID antibody test in May of this year, but it came up negative.  So if I did have the virus, the immunity has faded by now.  In hosp. they gave me a vit. D and B infusion since my levels were tanked out, also, potassium and magnesium. The infusion that I noticed almost immediate improvement was the vit. B.  I’m continuing to take all three as oral supplements.

    No on the D2. The good one is D3. My doc has me on 5000 to 10,000 ius a day and I am barely in the normal range. (Due to another med, I have to stay out of the sun.)

  • Are these D supplements oil-based?  Or have you heard that Vitamin D needs oil of some sort for best results?
