Vitamin D Could be Useful in Fight Against COVID-19: Study

Researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston are examining whether vitamin D could be a potent weapon against the coronavirus pandemic.

The Brigham study focuses on patients that are 30 or older who have been recently diagnosed with the virus within the past five days, an ABC News affiliate in Boston reported.

Study participants will be requested to take vitamin D or placebo capsules daily for 28 days, provide at-home blood samples by fingerprick and complete questionnaires.

Researchers are looking at whether vitamin D supplements lessen the chance of becoming infected if one has been exposed to a household member with the coronavirus, the affiliate reported.

Nutrition experts and studies note vitamin D is known for its ability to boost immune systems in human beings and may reduce respiratory tract infections risk.
