  • How Vitamin D Can Protect You From The Flu (or Even Worse)

    During the research and development phase of Vitality, our team found a fascinating study called Epidemic Influenza and Vitamin D that was done in 2006.

    The study's hypothesis was (paraphrasing): "The reason why people get the flu in the winter and don't get the flu in the summer is because of Vitamin D levels."

    Since people are deficient in vitamin D in the winter (no sunlight), this leads to weakened immune systems (especially in the lungs), which opens people up for attack from the influenza virus and other respiratory infections (i.e. COVID-19).

    Then this past week a breakthrough study was published that solidified our stance on Vitamin D: Calcifediol treatment and COVID-19-related outcomes.

    Per the study's interpretation: In patients hospitalized with COVID-19, calcifediol (i.e. Vitamin D) treatment at the time of hospitalization significantly reduced ICU admission and mortality. 

    With COVID-19 still wreaking havoc on the world this seems like the perfect time to dive deeper.
