Vitamin D appears to help prevent many illnesses, including COVID.

A 202 study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism found that more than 80% of people hospitalized for COVID-19 had low vitamin D levels. Supplementing with vitamin D can have many other benefits, including helping the body absorb calcium from the digestive tract in order to build healthy bones. Vitamin Dmay be associated with lower incidence of urinary tract infections and overactive bladder in adults. Low levels of vitamin D3 have been linked to increased inflammation and irritation in the digestive tract. If you’re considering a vitamin D supplement, it’s important to consult your doctor before you start.
