I read an article by Bodybuilding on Vitamin D deficiency. We know about vitamin D deficiency. Runners world said that countries with a Vitamin D deficiency can lead to a higher mortality rate. The elderly people at this time are being advised to stay indoors and that decreases their vitamin D.
We did some research on the English and Irish diets and found them to be lacking in many nutrients such as Vitamin D. And they were some of the most highest countries to have a lot of people contract the Coronavirus.England has over 281,000 cases and their cases is rising daily. Ireland has over 25,000 cases. People in those countries are very sedantary. Their winters are really harsh with no sunlight.
In the USA there is over 1911,339 cases and the amount of cases rises daily. Their diet is high in fats and this has caused for the coronavirus rates to grow rapidly.
If you are Vitamin D deficient you could be at risk for many things such as Type 2 diabetes and other illnesses. Actually Vitamin D is a hormone and it not only absorbs calcium, it also provides mood support.
Coronavirus is a respiratory disease so researchers are trying to find the link with low vitamin D. If you are deficient in Vitamin D and have been for a while you may get Cardiovascular disease which is a respiratory disease involving the heart.
So where is vitamin D present?
In foods such as dark leafy greens, salmon, eggs, trout, fortified milk, mushrooms, meat, liver, cheeses, sardines. If you don’t have enough you can also try a supplement such as cod liver oil.
Its also present in the natural sunlight, so try and get some sunlight every day.
But what happens if I take too much?
If you take too much according to WebMD you could have Vitamin D toxicity which means vomitting, weakness, frequent urination and irregular heartbeat.
