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.

Just curious what recommended daily dosage is. I take 125 mcg daily and wonder if I should increase

Get a D3 blood test to determine levels. I was admonished by my VA doc when my levels were in the 70s.,now in the 50s and nary a sniffle..

70 is like perfect. 50 still good.

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.

The cryin shame here is if you told an MD, they would call it an anecdotal tale and dismiss it..
