Increase Vitamin D Levels to Reduce Covid-19 Risk?

Increase Vitamin D Levels to Reduce Covid-19 Risk?

Vitamin D is an amazing nutrient for your bone and cardiovascular health (especially when combined with vitamin K2). It is also provides powerful support for your immune system. In fact, a new study in JAMA has linked Vitamin D levels to your risk of Covid-19.

From the study:

“In a study of 489 patients who had a vitamin D level measured in the year before COVID-19 testing, the relative risk of testing positive for COVID-19 was 1.77 times greater for patients with likely deficient vitamin D status compared with patients with likely sufficient vitamin D status, a difference that was statistically significant.”

While there is still the need for randomized clinical trials to determine whether broad population interventions and interventions among groups at increased risk of vitamin D deficiency, the research does look positive. So, should you increase Vitamin D levels to reduce covid-19 risk? The answer is that you probably need to increase your intake of Vitamin D, anyway. Learn why below.

How to Increase your Vitamin D Levels

While we get this important vitamin from the sun, and the foods that we eat, Vitamin D deficiency is very common. In fact, almost half of the population suffers from a deficiency. Below are ways to increase your Vitamin D levels.

Food Sources of Vitamin D:

  • Fatty fish, like tuna, mackerel, and salmon.
  • Egg yolks
  • Beef liver
  • Foods fortified with vitamin D, like some dairy products, orange juice, soy milk, and cereals
  • Cheese

Sunshine:

The sun is one of the best sources of vitamin D for the human body. Several factors affect how much vitamin D a person’s body can make from exposure to the sun, such as time of day, geographical location, skin color, and wearing sunscreen.

Vitamin D Supplements:

Because most of us don’t get the sunshine that we need (sunscreen is important!), and dairy and fortified foods aren’t the best way to get the vitamin D that we require, supplementing with Vitamin D is the best way to increase your levels. If you are looking to help increase your Vitamin D levels to reduce risk of covid-19, we highly recommend supplementation.

In simple terms, Vitamin K is required to move the calcium (that Vitamin D promotes the absorption of in our blood) to our bones. Click here to learn more about Vitamin D and K3.
