Our Vitamin D3 injection campaign continues. Most have received it, and those who are left are coming these days.
The administration of Vit D3 in 2021 is bound to reduce positivity and severity of Covid 19 in 2022.
Vitamin D is actually a steroid hormone rather than a vitamin. It is an immune modulator and potentially protects against COVID-19 or decrease the severity of illness.
Vitamin D stimulates both innate and adaptive immune function receptors in the respiratory tract. It decreases viral replication and reduces the synthesis of proinflammatory cytokines, thereby reducing lung tissue damage.
The optimal vitamin D status downregulates cytokine storm. Higher vitamin D levels correlate with lower IL-6 levels.
The renin–angiotensin system related inflammatory reaction in COVID-is also downregulated by vitamin D.
Low vitamin D levels < 30 ng/ml in COVID-19 patients are associated with the severity of diseases and mortality.
