Vitamin D proves ineffective in fight against COVID-19 – says study


A new study from says that Vitamin D does not improve a person’s resistance to COVID-19, nor does it help the condition of those already infected.

People with high Vitamin D levels are shown to be just as susceptible to the coronavirus. A technique called Mendelian Randomization was used on a sample size of 1.3 million people from across the world to account for various genetic factors.

Individuals with Vitamin D deficiency were not included in the study, as such, supplements may be useful in treating those who truly lack it.

Dr. Butler-Laporte said “Vitamin D supplementation as a public health measure to improve outcomes is not supported by this study. Most importantly, our results suggest investment in other therapeutic or preventative avenues should be prioritized for COVID-19 randomized clinical trials.
