Improve Your Odds with COVID with This Vitamin

Medical researchers found a link between Vitamin D deficiency and COVID.

It’s important to note that obesity can cause a Vitamin D deficiency. That’s why OPURITY® Vitamins by UNJURY® Protein are here to help.

“Vitamin D is important to the function of the immune system and vitamin D supplements have previously been shown to lower the risk of viral respiratory tract infections,” said David Meltzer, Chief of Hospital Medicine at UChicago Medicine and lead author of the study where researchers found the link. “Our statistical analysis suggests this may be true for the COVID-19 infection.”

According to the National Institutes of Health, people who are managing obesity and those who have had bariatric surgery might need greater intakes of Vitamin D to achieve recommended levels. They more often have a Vitamin D deficiency. That can get harder especially in the winter, when natural sunlight exposure maybe be limited.

Vitamin D supplements are your best bet to make sure you’re taking in the proper amount of Vitamin D each day. This is key to make sure you’re not in a Vitamin D deficiency.

3,000 75
