The latest study shows Vitamin D offers great protection against severe COVID

A recent study has shown that Vitamin D is a powerful preventive against serious illness or death from the coronavirus.

The researchers from Bar Ilan University and the Galil Medical Center discover strong evidence of the effect of vitamin D levels on morbidity.

“We found it remarkable, and striking, to see the difference in the chances of becoming a severe patient when you are lacking in vitamin D compared to when you’re not,” Dr. Amiel Dror, a Galil Medical Center physician and Bar Ilan researcher who was part of the team that did the study said.

“What we’re seeing when vitamin D helps people with COVID infections is a result of its effectiveness in bolstering the immune systems to deal with viral pathogens that attack the respiratory system,” Dror added.

This latest data, confirm earlier reports in June showing that 26 percent of coronavirus patients died if they were vitamin D deficient soon before hospitalization, compared to 3% who had normal levels of vitamin D.

The June report also states that hospitalized patients who were vitamin D deficient were 14 times more likely, on average, to end up in severe or critical conditions than others.
