What You Need To Know About Vitamin D and COVID-19

With all the panic around COVID-19 and most of the population directing their attention towards social distancing, washing their hands, and wearing masks, most people are missing the fact that there are many other proactive health measures to take in order to help the immune system ward off or fight COVID-19.

And one of those is Vitamin D.

Keep reading to see what you need to know about Vitamin D supplementation and your blood levels when it comes to preventing and fighting COVID-19.

See here for updates on Long Covid; prevention, countering the effects, and getting rid of symptoms like COVID-19.

According to some recent research around Vitamin D levels appear to play role in COVID-19 mortality rates.

Observational data comparing outcomes from various countries suggest inverse links between vitamin D levels and the severity of COVID-19 responses, as well as mortality, with the further suggestion of an effect of vitamin D on the immune response to infection.

They found that patients with severe Vitamin D deficiency were twice as likely to experience major complications when it came to COVID-19 symptoms and responses.

How Do I Measure My Vitamin D Levels?

Vitamin D Levels are actually pretty easy and relatively cheap to measure. 

You can either ask your doctor to run your Vitamin D levels or you can order a kit like the one HERE and measure your Vitamin D levels from the safety and comfort of your own home with a simple finger prick.

How Can I Raise My Vitamin D Levels?

The simplest way to increase Vitamin D in the body is to simply get outside in the sun for 20-30 minutes per day and expose the majority of your skin to direct sunlight.

If you aren't able to do that, you can take an oral Vitamin D supplement as well. Have a Functional Medicine practitioner run and assess your Vitamin D levels so that they can suggest the right dosage for you to keep your Vitamin D levels within the optimal range.

The Most Efficient Way To Increase Vitamin D Levels

While the sun may be the cheapest way to increase your Vitamin D levels, the most efficient way to increase Vitamin D is to get a quick injection of it while getting an IV at Drip IV Therapies.

At Drip IV, we offer Vitamin D boosters!
