Vitamin D Injections: Protection Against COVID-19

Vitamin D boosts your body’s natural defense against viruses and bacteria. It may also help prevent an exaggerated inflammatory response, which has been shown to contribute to severe illness in some people with COVID-19.

Vitamin D is important to the function of the immune system and Vitamin D supplements have previously been shown to lower the risk of viral respiratory tract infections. Our statistical analysis suggests this may be true for the COVID-19 infection.
