London: An international study has found that a good amount of vitamin D in the body can prevent covid-1 infection, serious illness and premature death. For the first time, a team from Trinity College in Ireland, the University of Edinburgh in Scotland and Zhejiang University in China looked at both genetically predicted and vitamin D levels.
When comparing the two variables, the researchers found that the correlation between the measured vitamin D concentrations was three times stronger than those genetically predicted for UVB-estimated vitamin D levels.
The report, published in the journal Scientific Reports, suggests that vitamin D may protect against severe Covid-1 disease and death.
“Our study not only supports the recommendation of vitamin D supplements to maintain bone and muscle health during lockdowns, but also provides potential protection against Kovid-1,” said Dr. Xu Li Zhijiang, a research researcher. .
Leena Jagaga, an associate professor of epidemiology and professor at the Trinity School of Medicine, said it was important to conduct randomly controlled trials of a well-planned Covid-1 random vitamin D supplement. Vitamin D supplements are safe and inexpensive, it is certainly valuable to take supplements and protect against vitamin D deficiency.
In addition, UVB radiation from a person’s place of residence prior to infection with covid-1 infection has been found to be strongly and inversely associated with hospitalization and death.
Previous studies have linked vitamin D deficiency to susceptibility to viral and bacterial respiratory infections. Similarly, several observational studies have found a strong link between vitamin D deficiency and covid-19.
A study conducted by researchers at the Azarili Faculty of Medicine at Nahariya Bar-Ilan University in Israel and the Galilee Medical Center (GMC) in Nahariya found that people with low vitamin D levels were less likely to die from covid-1. More than 20 percent.
They found that vitamin D deficiency had a direct effect on disease severity and mortality before Kovid-1 contract became infected.
