We all know the Sun give’s us Vitamin D, and this sunshine vitamin is now possibly connected to Covid-19. Yes there is a link between Vitamin D and Covid-19 yet it needs to be clinically determined in clinical trials.
The article from the Daily North Western continues, “according to a University release, the researchers studied publicly-available global data from the COVID-19 pandemic and observed that patients from countries with high COVID-19 mortality rates had lower levels of vitamin D compared to those from countries that were not affected as severely. The team reported the new finding in a paper on medRxiv, a pre-print server for health sciences.”
Please realize Vitamin D can be very bad for your Kidneys when taken it too large a dose.
