Nature's Own Vitamin D3 1000iu Supplement
Vitamin D3, reducing the likelihood of catching respiratory viral and bacterial conditions
Dr Kath Reynolds, Medical Director of Luminosity Skin and SkinMD, recommends the use of Vitamin D supplements, especially in this time of COVID-19 Pandemic Crisis.⠀
It has been proven that Vitamin D reduced the likelihood of catching viral and bacterial respiratory conditions, in a recent study by the British Medical Journal.
This study, known as a meta-analysis, involved 11,000 people over 25 studies.⠀
It showed that if you were well deficient in Vitamin D, then taking Vitamin D supplements could reduce your chances of catching a respiratory virus or bacteria by up to 70%. ⠀
If you were in the normal Vitamin D range, taking Vitamin D supplements reduced catching viruses and bacteria by 20%.⠀
In addition, any respiratory viruses or bacteria that did break through your immune defences caused a less serious infection with shorter duration and symptoms, when supplements were in use.⠀
Supplements that were effective were;⠀
1. Vitamin D 1000 IU daily (equiv.25mcg) or⠀
2. Vitamin D 10 000 IU weekly.⠀
It was found the larger doses given either 1,2 or 3 monthly did not offer these benefits. ⠀
Dr Kath Reynolds recommends to take one of these daily in order to properly help your immune defences to bacterial and viral respiratory infection.⠀
If you have any questions on the effectiveness or the study mentioned above, please get in touch.⠀
