A recent German study found a linear relationship between vitamin D levels and mortality from covid, and essentially, zero morbidity for those with a D level above 50 ng/mL.

“At a threshold level of 30 ng/mL, mortality decreases considerably. In addition, our analysis shows that the correlation for the combined datasets intersects the axis at approximately 50 ng/mL, which suggests that this vitamin D3 blood level may prevent any excess mortality."

Studies have already shown that one is 14 times more likely to die from COVID with vitamin D deficiency.

A meta-analysis of 23 published studies containing 11,901 participants found that one who is vitamin D-deficient was 3.3 times more likely to get infected with SARS-CoV-2 than one who is not deficient.

The reality is that most people’s levels are below 30 and many are closer to zero, especially among the elderly population.

With studies having shown zero correlation between lockdowns, masks, and vaccines and better COVID outcomes, there are now 142 studies vouching for the near-perfect correlation between higher vitamin D levels and better outcomes in COVID patients.

It is beyond criminal that 20 months into this endeavor there has not been a national campaign percolating down to primary care physicians to test and supplement vitamin D levels accordingly.

As the authors explain, the main cause of death from COVID stems from a “cytokine storm” when the body’s immune system releases too many toxic cytokines as part of the inflammatory response to the virus.

Vitamin D is the key regulator of those cells, and the insufficient amount of D is nearly synonymous with a greater risk for a cytokine storm.

In many ways, a cytokine storm is literally the outcome of vitamin D deficiency.

If we all took D3, C and zinc every day, we would have near perfect immune systems. And covid would be even less trouble than the seasonal flu.

Everyone in medicine knows this, but they won't tell us. Why?

And with vitamin D levels falling as winter approaches, covid, flu, colds, and other infections will rise. The silence of the medical community on this basic health information is pitiful.

Skin cancer isn't caused by the sun its caused by the damn 5g wireless signals the government has been pumping out in more and more force every single year. That is why there was no skin cancer 100 years ago, or at least was super rare. The reason people are getting cancer in greater numbers is because the government is causing them too, its just all more population control.

please don't make claims you have no idea are true or not. skin cancer was around 100 years ago and it is exposure to the sun or chemicals that causes skin cancer. as far as 5 G causing problems it does cause problems when it comes to cancer, but skin cancer is as a problem is verry minor compared to sun and chemical exposures. from 5 G I would be more concerned with brain cancer and Leukemia, Lymphoma, Myeloma that there seems to be a high casualty caused by high intensity bursts of energy used by cell phone technology

I am so fucking glad it's ingrained in Norwegian culture to take cod liver oil as a supplement. Tons of vitamin D along with Vit A, and omega fatty acids. Tastes awful, but we get it as capsules nowadays, so it's easier than ever to stay topped up during the winter.

Thanks to the many threads on this topic here on GAW, a couple months ago I purchased a zinc quercetin supplement. I have always had vitamin C and vitamin D around.

Over the last several months, there have been at least two times when I absolutely, unequivocally felt the initial symptoms of an impending cold or flu; that unusual extra degree of tiredness / feeling rundown; that weird tickle in the back of my throat, etc.

Both times I took the recommended dose of the zinc quercetin, along with 2000 mg of vitamin C, and an extra-large dose of vitamin D, and both times those initial symptoms turned into absolutely nothing and I did NOT get sick!!! It stopped the cold / flu DEAD In its tracks!!!

The game changer for me has been the Zinc Quercitin.

I’ve absolutely taken super doses of vit. C in the past, and it has never outright PREVENTED me from getting sick.

I always take extra large doses of vitamin C when I am sick and it seems to make me feel a little better, but again it’s never completely + outright KILLED a cold dead in its tracks like the zinc Quercitin!!!!

CuomoisaMassMurderer 6 points ago +6 / -0

You want some vitamin K with it. Or K2. That's expensive, D is cheap.

Amount of D needed is highly variable, our skin converts sunshine into D less as we age. The only way to know is blood work.

I was probably deficient shortly after turning 18. I've been on 10,000 IU almost daily for over a year.

Munchaussen 6 points ago +6 / -0

Not sure the mechanics but something in wheat blocks the metabolism of D3. My wife has MS and could get her levels into the 50's on 10,000 IU a day. I went grainless and because I do all of the cooking...she did too. Her D3 levels went to 154 after a month or so of being grainfree. There were 2 studies (PubMed) I sent to the Dr. but cannot locate them now. He had called us at home after her pre-visit labs were drawn to tell us to get to the ER immediately because she was toxic. It's amazing how much Dr.s DON'T know.

2
CuomoisaMassMurderer 2 points ago +2 / -0

Yup, they specifically aren't taught a lot. Nutritional research based on food was destroyed in 1964.

CuomoisaMassMurderer 4 points ago +4 / -0

Depending on age and how much sun you get, maybe so. 5,000 at least half the days through winter if you get no sun shouldn't hurt.

I based my increase on somebody here my age (pushing 60) who gets way more sun than I do having taken 20,000 I.U. every day for a year and a half. I figured at half that but twice what I thought I'd been talking should be safe. Also, I thought I'd been on 5,000 but looked closer and it was 2,000.

I'm not a Dr and without bloodwork we're just guessing. White people have a wide tolerance though, we store it well.

Optimal Vitamin D levels (100 – 150 nmol/L) play a positive role in making sure that your body functions the way it was developed. There are Vitamin D Receptors (VDR) located in tissue throughout your body and in all the major organs. Vitamin D interacts with over 3,000 genes.

The benefit of an adequate vitamin D level to each individual will be better overall health and a reduction of illnesses. In addition to rickets, bone disease and osteomalacia/osteoporosis, vitamin D insufficiency is associated with many other diseases including: tuberculosis, psoriasis, multiple sclerosis, inflammatory bowel disease, type-1 diabetes, high blood pressure, increased heart failure, myopathy, breast and other cancers. It is projected that the incidence of many of these diseases could be reduced by 20%-50% or more, if the occurrence of vitamin D deficiency and insufficiency were eradicated by increasing vitamin D intakes through increased UVB exposure, fortified foods or supplements.

A summary of the health benefits and disease incidence prevention that could be achieved by raising the public's vitamin D levels to 125 nmol/L:

Rickets, reduced by 100%

Osteomalacia, reduced by 100%

Cancers, all combined, reduced by 75%

Breast Cancer, reduced by 50%

Ovarian Cancer, reduced by 25%

Colon Cancer, reduced by 67%

Non-Hodgkins, reduced by 30%

Kidney Cancer, reduced by 67%

Endometrial Cancer, reduced by 35%

Type 1 Diabetes, reduced by 80%

Type 2 Diabetes, reduced by 50%

Fractures, all combined, reduced by 50%

Falls, women reduced by 72%

Multiple Sclerosis, reduced by 50%

Heart Attack, men, reduced by 50%

Peripheral Vascular Disease, reduced by 80%

Preeclampsia reduced by 50%

Cesarean Section, reduced by 75%

Wait. Drs say 40-60 is optimal range. We know that's low. Others say 50-90. One cooked for his wife who was tested at 70. They went wheat free and she jumped up to 154. Dr had her go in to ER because she was toxic.

You're saying 150 is fine and 90 is low?

1
Diamond_Pepe 1 point ago +1 / -0

You may have noted that I'm saying nothing, since I'm just quoting one of the most focused resources available on Vitamin D, ie the "Vitamin D Society".

More from the very same page:

Humans evolved in the horn of Africa, close to the Equator over 30,000 years ago. They spent their days out in the full sun, with no clothing, hunting and gathering food. Their skin pigment evolved and protected them from sun burns and allowed the production of vitamin D through the skin. Nature never intended for humans to live and work indoors, in cubicles, without sunshine exposure.

Non-Human Primates: 125 – 200 nmol/L Vieth 2004 – Why the optimal requirement for Vitamin D3 is probably much higher than what is officially recommended for adults

Maasai and Hadzabe, Tanzania: 115 nmol/L Luxwolda 2012 – Traditionally living populations in East Africa have a mean serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D concentration of 115 nmol/L

Outdoor Workers – Lifeguards: 163 nmol/L Haddad 1971 – Competitive protein-binding radioassay for 25-hydroxycholecalciferol

Outdoor Workers – Puerto Rico Farmers:135 nmol/L Haddock 1982 – 25(OH)D serum levels in normal Puerto Rican population and its subjects with tropical sprue and parathyroid disease

Outdoor Workers – Nebraska: 122 nmol/L Barger-Lux, Heaney 2002 – Effects of above average summer sun exposure on serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D and calcium absorption

Average Canadian: 68 nmol/L Statistics Canada – Langlois 2010 – Vitamin D status of Canadians as measured in the 2007 to 2009 Canadian Health Measures Survey

Dermatologists: 35 nmol/L Czarnecki 2009 – The vitamin D status of Australian Dermatologists

GrassrootsHealth and over 40 Vitamin D Scientists recommend achieving an optimal Vitamin D level for disease prevention of 100-150 nmol/L using a 25(OH)D blood test. This is the natural levels that the human body had as it evolved over thousands of years. Everyone should have their vitamin D 25(OH)D blood serum levels tested and make sure they are within these guidelines.

Please see also ICWB (former "Vitamin D Council", which was one of the first association to actively promote Vit D on a large, public scale). These pages especially, regarding recommended dosages and risks of overdosing:

https://icwb.com/vitamin-d-dosage

https://icwb.com/vitamin-d-overdosing

Overall, 4,000 or 5,000 UI per day (and up to 10,000 UI in case of deficiency and/or no supplementation in the recent past) looks like the optimal dose on the long run.

Vitamin K gives me migraines. I had to stop. I know it was the K because I had never had a migraine before until 2 weeks into daily supplemental dosing. And since I stopped they have disappeared.

3
CuomoisaMassMurderer 3 points ago +3 / -0

With massive doses of D, you don't need K right away. Nor do you need it every day. How much you really need Idk but if you notice excess bruising you're probably out of balance and need more. K can be gotten through diet and you may have some problem metabolizing the supplement, it's not that rare.

I'm sure there are other telltale signs to know when we have excess D or not enough K, it'd be nice to have that stuff stickied ...

CuomoisaMassMurderer 1 point ago +1 / -0

With a person experiencing clear adverse reactions to K, some adjustment is needed. It may indicate a problem absorbing K and he needs a different source, food always being best. A different form of the supplement may work. And he may have enough K for a bit.

Continuing to be low in D while figuring that out can't help, but 2,000 IU (or even less?) in the meantime might be prudent.

2rainbows 2 points ago +2 / -0

First confusing issue: There's 2 separate D-tests, unknown to general public.

Consequent problem: People also don't know the Tests obviously have different numbers.

3rd. problem: the AMA (as you know) wants to keep you sick, so they say 20.

4th. problem: As the populations health...via the AMA deteriorated past 150+yrs, they simply Adjust... the healthy Lab ranges accordingly, so people are led to Believe by the damn docs "oh, I'm still Normal, see the Lab says so" - when in fact people are only LIED to across the board in all areas & "specialties".

5th.problem : Unlike drugs which you are supposed to only get when an actual symptom exists for docs to "manage", Lab-tests Should be done Routinely throughout the year as a PREVENTATIVE. But they're not, so that the AMA can keep people in a increasingly diseased state of miserable existence.

6th. challenge : Ethical Functional MDs (the only kind to consult) have different ranges, depending on Presenting needs: Are you overcoming cancer?, or competing in the Olympics next year? & everything in between

Why do you take vitamin k? I mean, I know it's something our bodies need but it's generally ok with just eating a balanced diet. And I've seen people on this site rage against giving newborn babies their vitamin k shots. Vitamin k is a vital need, and without that shot for newborn babies they can end up with huge healthy problems soon after they're born.

1
Akka 1 point ago +1 / -0

There are two types, K1 and K2, with somewhat different functions in the body. From what I have read seems that D3 and K2 work together, D3 affects calcium, and if there is not enough K2 that can end up in your arterial walls, so too much D3 alone could harden your arteries, but with K2 calcium goes to your bones.

K1 can be had from green veggies and such, but K2 seems to be a bit more rare in our normal diets, so it might be smart to take that as a supplement, at least if you take D3 supplements in larger doses.

This was one link I found on a short search.

Unless I'm talking to some 90 lb teenager, I really do think you're being too conservative at 4,000. Absorbing it is a factor of 1)sun exposure 2) skin tone 3) gut health 4) weight 5) age, and I'd say how much you shower. it's made on the surface of the skin, and modern people shower so much now and rinse it off before it gets absorbed.

TL;DR people: vitamin D regimen staves off covid, colds, flus, etc.

Personal addendum: vitamin A, B complex, zinc, and moderate exercise in sunshine WITH vitamin D, and NO flu shots will keep you damn near ailment free.

Been telling people this for years.

Began doing this in 2012 and the most i got was a 24hr stomach bug. Before that, got flu shots every year and was sick as hell within 5-10 days of getting it. No shot has also dramatically impacted the severity of seasonal allergies. I still get them once a year, but bedore it was several times a year and could barely function. Misery.

tattletalestrangler 5 points ago +5 / -0

Note that milk only contains vitamin D as a supplement, I believe. If you buy organic milk I believe it has no vitamin D as they don't add any supplements to it, unless it specifically mentions "with vitamin D".

The Organic Milk I buy contains Vitamin D. It doesn’t specify whether it was added or not.

2
tattletalestrangler 2 points ago +3 / -1

My guess is that it's added, but that is a guess. I think they add vitamin D to milk because it helps the body absorb the calcium, which is in the milk naturally. The ingredients list should indicate whether it was added or not. If you don't see Vitamin D in the ingredients list I would say that it would seem to indicate it's in the milk naturally.

I guess mine being in the 70s kept me safe from all the viral indicators of 15 days to flatten the curve and my doc still doesn't get it... 😉

They do say a lower level is good. Higher is better but of course there is a limit.

I truly don't know, but there may be a case of mirror image bad-kinda like 3mg of melatonin is about right and 20mg provokes sleeplessness..

I have a buddy whose diet is one of the worst I have ever seen for an adult. All he eats, and Im serious these are the only things he eats, are candy, white bread, beef/turkey/chicken and about a gallon of vitamin a and d whole milk per day. No water, no fruit, no vegetables.

When its hotter than shit out and we are working everyone is grabbing water or gatorade out of my coolers. He always has his 1/2 gallon of milk in there and he drinks that.

Ive known him since we were 5 and have never seen the guy sick a day in his life and hes 58.

I took 3 to 5,000 units of D3 prior to and after getting the Coof that almost killed me. I managed until day 4. Vitamin D did nothing for me after the fever got out of control. Possible my lame generic Vitamin D3 capsules were garbage? Who makes really good Vitamin D supplements that we can trust?

Not all insurance providers cover vitamin d level testing, and even if they do they often don't cover more than a single test every 6-12 months. GP practitioners don't often check for it because a ton of people wouldn't be able to check for it. I never had mine tested until I visited a specialist for my immune system problems. (Side note, it really frustrates me when people here go on about their terrific God given immune systems and all that. God doesn't give everyone good immune systems that function properly) My D levels were hugely chronically low, and it seems to be a problem with my body. Despite getting sun and taking 10,000 units a day, my levels seem to barely reach the low end of "normal" levels.

We've known this for a long time. More recognition of it never hurts, though.

The "normies" are completely numb and inert to all scientific information. They only believe what government/media authority figures tell them, as long as those figures are from the same ideological tribe.

Yup. ZAnecdotal evidence based on friends and acquaintances says that those who are part of, or associated with, mainstream healthcare (AMA, big pharma) are more apt to be against non-pharmacological approaches than are most normies.

(It's sad to see intelligent, educated individuals so drunk on the med/pharma kool-aid that they won't even consider the possibility that other approaches might be of value.)

OTC vitamins is cheaper than hospitalization from pneumonia from the flu. Also OTC cold meds and pain relievers rack up a lot of money. I also might add, sunscreen has been associated with skin cancer.

Another way to stop the cytokine storm is any drug that contains hydrochloride, such as anti-histamine, cold and flu medicine, a lot of pharmacy products have it. It's usually mixed with other compounds, but as long as it's in there, it will help.
