Vitamin D and Covid-19
Recent data suggests that having a Vitamin D deficiency may increase the chance for Covid-19 complications. According to the NIH 41.6% of US adults are deficient in Vitamin D! What to do??
- Get plenty of sunlight. That is the primary source for your body to metabolize Vitamin D.
- Consume fortified foods such as milk and plant-based milk substitutes, some cereals, fortified orange juice.
- Foods that naturally have vitamin D are – mushrooms, fatty fish such as tuna and salmon, and egg yolks.
- If you want to take a supplement limit to 2000 IU’s a day (unless you have a doctor’s order for more). Mega doses of Vitamin D can be harmful!
