Better Vitamin D Levels = Lower Covid 19 Positive Test Rates

This new research article shows that people with poor vitamin D levels had higher positive test rates for Covid-19 than those with better vitamin D scores.

  • Over 190,000 patients from all 50 states with SARS-CoV-2 results performed mid-March through mid-June, 2020 and matching 25(OH)D results from the preceding 12 months were included.
  • Studies suggest an association between vitamin D deficiency and risk of viral upper respiratory tract infections and mortality from coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19). This relationship is anticipated, given that vitamin D has numerous actions affecting the innate and adaptive immune systems. Respiratory monocytes/macrophages and epithelial cells constitutively express the vitamin D receptor. Acting through this receptor, vitamin D may be important in protection against respiratory infections.
  • There was an association between lower SARS-CoV-2 positivity rates and higher circulating 25(OH)D levels. The decrease in positivity rate associated with 25(OH)D levels appeared to plateau as values approached 55 ng/mL.

In the office, we have two different vitamin D supplements for sale. Innate Choice Vitamin D3 is in liquid drop from, well suited for adults and kids.Vitamin D to The Rescue capsules are also available. A friend of mine from chiropractic school founded this company and donates $5 from every bottle sold to help stop human trafficking.

We are also able to order a blood test for you to determine your Vitamin D levels if you do not know if your score. You would get the blood draw at any LabCorp location.
