A study from the University of Chicago found patients who were deficient in vitamin D were about 77 percent more likely to test positive for COVID than patients who were not, and Dr. David Meltzer -- the author of the study -- joins us to discuss.
Dr. Meltzer says in addition to bone health, the vitamin also enhances the body's immune system. He explains some exposure to the sun -- 15 to 30 minutes daily while being mindful not to spend too long in the sun without sunscreen -- helps the body create vitamin D.
Other ways to get the essential vitamin includes vitamin D fortified foods, and supplements. He warns the recommended daily allowance for vitamin D for most people is 600 to 800 international units. If someone were to get too much vitamin D this could help to high calcium in the body, which can cause fatigue, frequent urination, and weakness.
Stock up and potentially protect yourself from COVID with a full year's supply of vitamin D supplements from NatureWise, which has over 37,000 glowing reviews and the maker says it helps to "support teeth and bone health, provide immune support, and promote healthy muscle function."
As always, speak with your doctor before starting any new supplement.
