A new study has shown that low Vitamin D levels appear to play a significant role in COVID-19 death rates. Vitamin D strengthens innate immunity and prevents overactive immune responses.
Patients with severe Vitamin D deficiency are twice as likely to experience significant complications, according to researchers from Northwestern University.
Researchers analyzed data from a number of hospitals and clinics across the world. They found that patients from countries with high COVID-19 mortality rates, such as the US, Spain, UK, Italy, and China, had lower levels of vitamin D compared to patients in other countries that were not as affected.
The team found a connection between low Vitamin D levels and a hyperactive immune response (also known as cytokine storm).
Ali Daneshkhah, one of the study’s authors, states: “Cytokine storm can severely damage lungs and lead to acute respiratory distress syndrome and death in patients. This is what seems to kill a majority of COVID-19 patients, not the destruction of the lungs by the virus itself. It is the complications from the misdirected fire from the immune system.”
According to the study, not only could Vitamin D cut the mortality rate in half, but it could also reduce complications and prevent death in people who are infected with COVID-19. 
Another recent study suggests that vitamin D3 supplementation can reduce the risk of COVID-19 infections and death.
10,000 IU of Vitamin D3 per day should be taken for a few weeks to reduce the risk of infection. After that, 5,000 IU per day is recommended.
For the treatment of people who are already infected with COVID-19, researchers suggest that an even higher daily dose vitamin D3 might be useful.
