Vitamin D: A potent protector against SARS CoV-2

Panic has become the motto as the world tries to prepare for the onslaught of the corona-virus. Stores are being stripped of food worldwide, and cruise ships are being held offshore while passengers are being checked for the virus. Scientists are looking for a vaccine to treat the world population as soon as humanly possible.

The UK and many other countries are looking at Vitamin D infusion therapy as a treatment, while the official death rate rises to 3.4%. A New Zealand research report proved that Vitamin D had been shown to have anti-viral, anti-inflammatory properties while being a powerful antioxidant. Patients with corona-virus in critical condition have been given as much as 3,000 milligrams intravenously of the vitamin a day.

Taking Vitamin D from your local health food store or other markets will build and support your immune system with high levels of antioxidants that can help fend off infections.

Vitamin D: A potent protector against SARS CoV-2

 

The NHS website confirms this, saying: ‘There have been some news reports about vitamin D reducing the risk of coronavirus. However, there is no evidence that this is the case.’ However, taking Vitamin D supplements in a prescribed quantity would do more good than harm. Vitamin D is generated as the body comes in exposure to the sun. But, due to ongoing isolation and quarantine methods, the stipulated amount of Vitamin D has gone down noticeably. 

Deficiency of Vitamin  D leads to muscle atrophy and reduced bone density, turning them brittle and prone to breaking. Low vitamin D levels are associated with an increased risk of respiratory diseases, including tuberculosis, asthma, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), as well as viral and bacterial respiratory infections. Ten micrograms of Vitamin D a day might also be your best defense against respiratory complications. 

Prof Jon Rhodes, emeritus professor of medicine in the UK, says vitamin D has anti-inflammatory effects, and some research suggests it may dampen down the body’s immune response to viruses. This could be relevant in severely affected coronavirus patients whose severe lung damage can result from an inflammatory “cytokine storm” in response to the infection, although much more research is needed to explore this, he says.

People of the UK and some parts of the USA are generally advised to take supplements of Vitamin D during the winter season.
