New Study Shows "Vitamin D" can Reduce the Risks and Deaths from COVID 19


Vitamin D, the Sunshine vitamin can lower the risks of the Covid 19 infections new studies revealed. Even the recoveries are in place, some groups are still dying on these deadly virus infection. The absence of an efficient vaccine forced everyone to adopt the best curing method to survive the disease.

As we know the vitamin D deficiency cause the immunity level of us badly can lead to a life long patient. 

The new evidence of the vitamin D shield on Covid 19 is unveiled  by the Boston University. According to them sufficient levels of Vitamin D can prevent the patients’ condition from deteriorating and it can even reduce the need for oxygen .

Researchers from Boston University School of Medicine and Tehran University of Medical Studies took blood samples from 235 patients admitted to the Sina Hospital in Tehran, Iran with coronavirus infection. 

 The researchers then observed the patients' outcomes, and analyzed their blood for vitamin D levels, as well as markers of inflammation and lymphocytes, white blood cells that help fight infection.

They found that patients with sufficient vitamin D, or levels above a clinical deficiency, were less likely to have severe infections and difficulty breathing.

“Only 9.7% of patients older than 40 years who were vitamin D sufficient succumbed to the infection compared to 20% who had a circulating level of 25(OH)D< 30 ng/ml,” the researchers at the Boston University said in an article in PLOS One.

"This study provides direct evidence that vitamin D sufficiency can reduce the complications, including the cytokine storm (release of too many proteins into the blood too quickly) and ultimately death from COVID-19," explained corresponding author Michael F. Holick, Ph.D., MD, professor of medicine, physiology and biophysics and molecular medicine at Boston University School of Medicine.
