Vitamin D, an ally that you should not overlookEquipo de Soporte
Since the first news related to the coronavirus pandemic, this blog has commented on the advantages of maintaining an adequate supply of vitamin D to maintain health through a healthy defence system.
It was already known that vitamin D plays an essential role in the absorption of calcium, which is primarily essential for the skeletal system. It is also of fundamental value for the muscular system, the nervous system and, in this case, the immune system.
The best way for the body to access this vitamin is through sunlight. However, although it may seem counter-intuitive, many people who live in countries with many hours of sunshine do not get enough sunlight, which leads to a deficiency in vitamin D production. Experts recommend 45 to 60 minutes of sunshine a day as a healthy average. Of course, it is important to consider the hours when the sun is less harmful during the summer season. You can also get this vitamin from certain foods and supplements, but it is important not to exceed the amounts recommended by specialists.
If you have any doubts about your body’s vitamin D levels, a simple blood test will answer these questions. The measurement is in nanograms per millilitre. There is no complete consensus among experts, although between 25 and 50 ng/ml is considered to be an adequate amount.
Several recent studies (see sources at the end of the commentary) indicate that the patients with the worst prognosis for Covid 19 also had low levels of this vitamin and that, on the contrary, those with high levels showed a faster recovery or even showed no symptoms despite the fact that they could have been infected.
Vaccination is helping to bring infection rates down, but this does not mean that we should let our guard down. Consult your doctor if you need any supplementation in your particular case.
It is interesting to note that increased vital energy readings can be obtained when vitamin D is used as a radionic reagent in people who require an extra supply of this important nutrient. The use of so-called reagents (energetic energisers) can provide very rapid solutions to certain negative conditions. Using them in your experimentation can be surprisingly effective.
