Some Valley doctors say boosting Vitamin D intake could help slow COVID-19 spread
Some Valley doctors are boosting recommendations of Vitamin D to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
According to the Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism, low levels of Vitamin D can put people at greater risk of contracting COVID-19.
Local research conducted in Starr County shows a significant number of people would be at risk. The city of Roma administered Vitamin D tests to city employees and found that 95% of adults working there had dangerously low levels of Vitamin D.
Vitamin D helps the immune system recognize pathogens and germs in the body, helping block deadly viruses like COVID-19 from reaching healthy cells.
