Let’s talk about vitamin D
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that promotes a healthy immune system, as well as maintaining strong bones. It is so important for immune function. Low levels of vitamin D correspond with increased susceptibility to infection, disease, and immune-related disorders. Vitamin D deficiency may also show up in an increased risk of respiratory diseases like tuberculosis, asthma, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Viral and bacterial respiratory infections may also hit harder if your Vitamin D is low. That may affect your body’s ability to fight respiratory infections. [Healthline.com] Vitamin D and Covid-19 may also have a relationship.
Another result of Vitamin D deficiency may be a weak immune response to Covid-19, causing you severe illness and hospitalization or death.
These links between Vitamin D and Covid-19 have yet to be extensively proven. But you can only help yourself by being healthy.
