I’ve been harping loud and long about supplementing vitamin D3 for optimal aging and for preventing severe damage or death from Covid-19. I typically use 5000-10,000 IU in summer, (because I don’t get much sun) and 15,000 to 20,000 IU in winter, and have been doing so for about 15 years. That is one reason I felt comfortable working as a trainer at Fitness19 during parts of this pandemic, and why I will return to work as soon as they open up again. Since I started keeping my measured 25(OH) vitamin D levels above 70 ng/ml I’ve never had the flu (without ever taking a flu shot), and had maybe 6 colds in those 15 years. I never caught the virus from the gym or other friends I gathered and ate with, but wife Jo and I were recent (February, 21) recipients of the Pfizer Vaccine.
For those of you who are willing to sit through a 1 hour, 23 minutes of well-documented evidence supporting the use of supplemental Vitamin D3 in the doses I propose, I offer this excellent overview of the evidence to that effect with Dr. Roger Seheult, MD of UC Riverside School of Medicine. This should have been shouted from the rooftops by the WHO and the CDC as the early evidence showed that most of the deaths would have been avoided if the medical community had acted on this information.
