Vitamin D supplementation boosts immunity
It is understood that vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin whose main function is to promote the absorption of calcium and phosphorus by the body, and promote the formation and calcification of new bones. Vitamin D deficiency can cause rickets in children and rickets in adults, and children with severe vitamin D deficiency are also prone to hypocalcemia, which can lead to seizures or heart failure. Today, a growing body of research suggests that vitamin D may have preventive effects against heart failure, diabetes, cancer, respiratory infections, autoimmune diseases, and even hair loss. Some experts have also done research and found that people who were supplemented with vitamin D had a two-thirds reduction in respiratory infections in winter.
Not only that, scientists in Spain last year tested 216 hospitalized COVID-19 patients and found that 82 percent had low levels of vitamin D (the findings were published on October 27, 2020 in the American Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism). "superior). Many studies also point out that vitamin D deficiency may increase the risk of contracting COVID-19 and becoming severely ill after infection. The lack of vitamin D is universal. People need vitamin D supplementation properly.
So, how to supplement vitamin D? In fact, vitamin D is converted from the corresponding pro-vitamin D through ultraviolet radiation, so sun exposure is an important way for the human body to synthesize vitamin D. However, many people are now unable to get enough sunlight in their daily life due to work and other reasons, so they have to supplement it through food, and relying solely on diet cannot meet the body's nutritional needs for vitamin D.
Therefore, the use of vitamin D supplementation is a cost-effective and straightforward method for reducing the incidence of vitamin D deficiency-related diseases. In fact, British scientists have been recommending and even mandating that food manufacturers add vitamin D to foods such as bread and milk. In the past two years, the British government has also recommended that all Britons take vitamin D supplements in winter, and high-risk groups need to take vitamin D supplements throughout the year.
All in all, during the extraordinary period of the new crown epidemic, improving one's own vitamin D level can not only enhance immunity and keep away from various diseases, but also help people reduce the probability of being infected with the new crown, and even if they are recruited, it can help avoid severe illness.
