The link between – Italy, Covid 19 & Vitamin-D

Covid-19 is the talk of the globe now a days. All the

scientists are in search of its medicine and vaccine,

researches are going on and for sure we will get

success in that sooner or later, but till then

we have to take care of our self by following our

government instructions. You know that Italy is having

highest death because of Covid-19 in Europe and

it is among top 5 in the world. But you

may not know that Italy is one of the countries with

the highest prevalence of low level of

vitamin-D in Europe.

Vitamin -D deficiency has been reported to increase

the risk of developing systemic infection and

impaired immune response or even autoimmune disease. One

meta-analysis has shown that vitamin-D supplementation can

prevent respiratory infection (if you want the reference articles,

you can message on 9825395427).

Vitamin-D plays a crucial role in maintaining

your immunity. It has both anti-inflammatory and

immunoregulatory properties. It also enhances

the function of immune cells like- t-cell and

macrophages, which protect your body against pathogen.

What does this mean for you?

If you are already diagnosed with covid-19 infection,

You have no choice but to listen to your Doctor. But,

if you are spared from covid-19, help yourself now by

getting enough vitamin-D. You are lucky enough to

born in INDIA as God Suryanarayan (sun) has really graced

india with good sunshine almost throughout the years.


In this lockdown you need not go in garden or

public places for getting sunshine. You need to

just stand in your gallery or veranda.

Please maintain social distancing while getting

sunshine in this lockdown. Everyday get exposure to

sunshine at least for 20—30 mins between

8am to 1pm as per your comfort.

Now summer has started so it is better to

take sunshine before 11:30 am.

Just get up and take your sunshine daily.

If you want, you can blame china for covid-19, but

you can not blame anybody for your vitamin-D deficiency!

Stay healthy & Stay safe..

That’s all for today.

See you next Tuesday with another Tuesday Tip.
