COVID-19 Supplements: There is growing mounting evidence of the usage of Vitamin D to prevent severity of COVID-19 disease and now even as a prophylaxis to lower the risk of even contracting COVID-19.


 
The latest report published in the journal: Lancet by researchers from the London School Of Medicine and Dentistry -Queen Mary University Of London and School Of Clinical Medicine-University of Cambridge postulates that vitamin D favorably modulates host responses to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), both in the early viraemic and later hyperinflammatory phases of COVID-19. Vitamin D metabolites have long been known to support innate antiviral effector mechanisms, including induction of antimicrobial peptides and autophagy.

Numerous studies of using Vitamin D to deal with various aspects of COVID-19 has been emerging the last few months despite initial attempts by unscrupulous doctors and certain researchers who are under payroll of large pharmaceutical companies to claim that Vitamin D had no effects of any kind on the COVID-19 disease.
 
In this new report, the researchers discussed the possibility that vitamin D could offer protection against severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infections. Based on the meta-analyses of randomized controlled trials performed from 2007 to 2020, the results revealed that vitamin D does have protective effects against acute respiratory infections.
 
The study observed that the risk factors for severe COVID-19 are akin to those of vitamin D deficiency. These include obesity, older age, and Black or Asian ethnic origin. They hypothesized that supplementation with vitamin D could become protective, preventive, or therapeutic against COVID-19.

The researchers said there are reasons why vitamin D induces host responses to SARS-CoV-2, early on in the infection, and in the latter stages of the illness.
 
Past studies have shown that vitamin D supports the body’s natural antiviral effector mechanisms, such as antimicrobial peptides and autophagy. (Antimicrobial peptides or AMPs, also known as host defense peptides, are short positively charged peptides that can kill microbial pathogens directly while autophagy, also known as “self-eating,” is the body’s process of c
