Massive Study Demonstrates Vitamin D’s Safety and Effectiveness

“It’s up to all of us to publicize the importance of vitamin D!”

Many studies, including a new large-scale study featured in the video below, have consistently demonstrated the effectiveness of vitamin D supplementation in reducing the risk and severity of COVID-19 and other viral infections. Today, we feature this new video by John Campbell, PhD, as he reviews the study and provides additional details about where vitamin D research and implementation stands, even after seeing conclusions such as one based on the findings this study, that 116,000 deaths due to COVID-19 could possibly have been avoided with vitamin D supplementation alone.

Watch the video and make note of the key points and added details below.
“Vitamin D, Safe and effective”
Video Key Points
A new publication by Gibbons et al. showed a 20-28% reduction in COVID-19 infection rate and a 33% reduction in COVID-19 mortality rate among those supplementing with vitamin D

Dose-specific responses were observed, where those on a higher dose obtained greater benefits

Risk was lower among those with higher vitamin D levels; the greatest decrease in risk following supplementation was seen among those with a starting vitamin D level of less than 20 ng/ml or 50 nmol/L

The authors state that Vitamin D deficiency

  • is associated with reduced immune function
  • can lead to viral infection
  • is associated with an increased risk of COVID-19

Deficiency and insufficiency affects approximately half of the US population (closer to 90% of the population when considering anything below 40 ng/ml or 100 nmol/L as insufficient)

“As a safe, widely available, and affordable treatment, Vitamin D may help to reduce the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic.”

It is important to get vitamin D levels checked – it may be difficult for some to get their doctors to test, making home vitamin D testing a convenient way to find out

It is especially important to take vitamin D during the winter, when vitamin D levels tend to drop due to less exposure to UVB from sunshine

Other Nutrients Shown to Reduce the Risk of COVID-19
  • Magnesium may help manage the effects of COVID-19 disease during and after infection through its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and immune regulating actions
  • Omega-3 supplementation in patients with COVID-19 improved the chances of survival by 7 times
  • Selenium status may affect COVID-19 outcomes, as demonstrated in this study

Measure your status of all of the above along with your vitamin D! Create your custom kit to include the Omega-3 Index (with or without additional ratios), and add Magnesium PLUS Elements to include selenium, zinc, copper, and others, along with your vitamin D.
