The Impact of Vitamin D on COVID-19 Infection: Systemic Review and Meta-Analysis

This large meta analysis (gold standard in interventional studies) from 14 hospitals showed that being vitamin D deficient increases your risk of getting a COVID-19 infection by 80%. Other research also showed that hospitalizations and deaths are reduced by over 65% in those who are vitamin D sufficient.

This is extremely compelling data and there is even better news.  Vitamin D deficiency is considered under 30 ng/mL which is extremely low. Optimal levels are up over 50 ng/mL.  This will give your body the best defense.

When you get your levels optimized it significantly reduces your all cause morbidity and mortality.  It reduces risk and helps the body heal from diabetes, heart disease, cancer, autoimmune disease and neurodegenerative diseases.  

At your next blood test, find out your 25-OH vitamin D levels. In the meantime, taking roughly 1000 IU per 25 lbs of body weight is a great maintenance dose to keep you in the optimal range.  If you are deficient, take 2000 IUs of D3 per 25lbs of body weight to optimize levels and then reduce to 1000 IU per 25 lbs of body weight.
