Vitamin D and Immune Function
Vitamin D appears to work to support all 3 of the key goals discussed that are necessary to fight coronaviruses – perhaps making it the perfect safe, preventative supplement to support your immune system.
Vitamin D can reduce the risk of viral infections in several ways:
- By maintaining tight junctions to reduce viruses entering the cell
- By killing the enveloped viruses so they cannot replicate by upregulating one of our primary viral response mechanisms, a valuable peptide our body makes called LL-37
- By reducing the production of proinflammatory cytokines to avoid the deadly cytokine storm
Observational and supplementation trials have reported higher Vitamin D concentrations associated with reduced risk of dengue, hepatitis, herpesvirus, hepatitis B and C viruses, human immunodeficiency virus, influenza, respiratory syncytial virus infections, and pneumonia. The results of a recent community field trial reported that Vitamin D concentrations above 50 ng/ml were associated with marked reduction in influenza-like illnesses. The study hypothesized that raising serum D concentrations through vitamin D supplementation could significantly reduce the incidence, severity, and risk of death from influenza, pneumonia, and the deadly coronaviruses. We know that there is no reported toxicity of vitamin D at doses of 10,000iu or less daily. We want everybody to be certain they have high enough serum levels!
In addition, there are almost 3000 binding sites for the vitamin D receptor along the length of the genome. These are unusually concentrated near a number of genes associated with susceptibility to autoimmune conditions such as MS, Crohn's disease, systemic lupus erythematosus (or 'lupus') and rheumatoid arthritis, and to several different cancers. Gene-D has a significant positive effect on 229 different genes.
