Sharjah 24 – UNA:A recent study released in the United States showed that patients with adequate levels of vitamin D are less likely to die from the Coronavirus, or even to suffer from complications from the deadly virus, while another study found that this important vitamin also reduces infection rates.

The study issued by the Boston University School of Medicine showed that enjoying adequate amounts of vitamin D is associated with a significant decrease in the level of inflammation associated with the Corona virus, in addition to raising the performance of immune cells in the blood.

High levels of lymphocytes are associated with the reduction of an overreactive immune response called a cytokine storm, or the release of too many proteins into the blood too quickly, which is one of the common causes of death with the Coronavirus.

During the study, blood samples were drawn to measure the levels of vitamin D from 235 patients, who were hospitalized after contracting Covid, according to the journal PLoS One.

These patients were followed up to find out their conditions, including the severity of their infection, whether they lost consciousness or had difficulty breathing, leading to deaths.

It was found that, for patients over the age of 40, those with adequate vitamin D levels were 51 percent less likely to die, compared to patients with hypovitaminosis.
