Experimental tests have found no evidence that low vitamin D increases the risk associated with covid-19, but there is, of course, a link between sunscreen vitamins and the immune system. Experts have informed about this. Amid concerns about the spread of a global epidemic and a new type of more contagious coronavirus, experts say vitamin D pills or natural remedies are not too expensive.
Also, compared to the dangers associated with Covid-19, there is little risk involved. Thus, this aspect of government should be included in their strategies to deal with the coronavirus. Professor Afrozul Haque, former dean of the School of Interdisciplinary Science and Technology (SIST) at Jamia Hamdard University in New Delhi, says there are age-related causes of the deadly dangers associated with the coronavirus, already suffering from a serious disease but vitamin D. Keeping the level low increases the risk.
1,170 experts, including Hawke, also wrote an open letter this month. The letter was posted on the ‘VitaminMindFloral.org’ website calling for an increase in vitamin D supplementation. “Studies have shown that low levels of vitamin D increase the risk of covid-19 infection, hospitalization or death,” it said.
The letter said there was an urgent need to gather more information about vitamin D so far. Professor Vinita Bal, a visiting professor at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research in Pune, said vitamin D deficiency has become quite common among people in India. If someone is very deficient in it, it is recommended to take a dose.
According to Professor Sreejith Mishra, who signed the letter, adults are advised to take 4,000 international units (IU) or 100 micrograms (MCG) per day. It is less common in people who are overweight or underweight in care homes. However, a review of five studies from the National Institutes of Health and Care in the United Kingdom concluded that vitamin D levels were not related to the risk of covid-19 or risky death.
