Vitamin D Deficiency Causes Risk of COVID Death to Soar (study shows)

A recent study published in the Journal of Endocrinological Investigation suggests that “patients with a severe vitamin D deficiency had a significantly higher mortality risk.” This study adds to the body of evidence and is consistent with other studies showing the role vitamin D plays in the risk of severe symptoms and death associated with COVID-19. It’s been estimated that about 20 percent of the U.S. population has deficient or inadequate levels of Vitamin D. If you want to bump up vitamin D intake, besides getting a bit more sunlight, you can increase your vitamin D levels by eating oil-rich fish like salmon, eggs, milk and taking vitamin D3 supplements.
