👉A new campaign launching today, encouraging governments to recommend the regular testing and supplementation of Vitamin D.
👉There is enough evidence now published to show that vitamin D deficiency causes higher death rates from Covid-19 and your status of vitamin D is a risk factor for development and progression of the disease.
👉Yet there is still very little advice to the public on what level to supplement at (the current advice is a low dose) and little to no advice about testing your personal levels. As a result there is growing pressure on the government to change their recommendations.
👉It is estimated that up to 75% of the world is deficient in vitamin D interfering with immune system function as well as increasing risk of cancers, heart disease, IBD, osteoporosis and autoimmune diseases such as MS.
👉Vitamin D supplements don’t cost a lot and if new trials using higher doses of Vitamin D prove successful, this could potentially provide a cheaper and more accessible preventative route in global efforts against CV-19.
👉Remember vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin. It’s always best to test your levels BEFORE supplementing at higher doses. Get in touch today if you need more information.
