Vitamin D and COVID-19

Ray of Light

Low Vitamin D levels have been linked to increased risk of:

  • contracting COVID-19

  • developing severe illness with COVID-19

  • dying from COVID-19

 

People are more likely to be Vitamin D deficient in the winter.  Also, those with dark skin are more likely to be Vitamin D deficient because darker skin creates less Vitamin D through sun exposure.

You can boost your vitamin D level through Vitamin D3 supplements, sun exposure on your skin, and foods such as organ meats, with smaller quantities in clams, salmon, and egg yolks.
