It is now clear that vitamin D plays a role in preventing and controlling coronavirus infection. Having adequate levels of this vitamin has been shown to reduce complications and death among coronavirus patients, for example.
Researchers have compared average levels of vitamin D across 20 European countries with coronavirus infection rates and mortality. They found that people with low vitamin D levels may be more likely to die after contracting the virus. Other research has shown that people with low levels of vitamin D have 60 percent higher rates of coronavirus infection compared to those with adequate amounts.
To read how, when used in combination with magnesium and vitamin B12, daily doses of vitamin D3 have been shown to reduce disease severity in older coronavirus patients, see this article on our website.
