Aside from insulin resistance, discussed in “The Real Pandemic Is Insulin Resistance,” vitamin D deficiency has emerged as a primary risk factor for severe COVID-19 infection and death. Higher vitamin D levels have even been shown to lower your risk of testing positive for the virus in the first place.
Getting the word out about this — especially to the Black community and the elderly in nursing homes — could have a significant impact on future hospitalization and death rates from this virus.
If you have a loved one in a nursing home, taking the time to talk to the medical management about vitamin D testing and supplementation could also make a big difference in the general health of all the residents, as vitamin D is something that can strengthen your immune system in a matter of a few weeks and has many health benefits beside lowering your risk of viral illness.
Vast Majority of COVID-19 Patients Have Vitamin D Deficiency
According to a Spanish study1,2,3 published online October 27, 2020, in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, 82.2% of COVID-19 patients tested were found to be deficient in vitamin D, the medical term for which is 25-hydroxycholecalciferol (25OHD).
The researchers compared the vitamin D levels of 216 COVID-19 patients and 197 population-based controls, finding that hospitalized COVID-19 patients had a higher prevalence of deficiency and had lower vitamin D levels overall. As reported by the authors:4
“In COVID-19 patients, mean± SD 25OHD levels were 13.8±7.2 ng/ml, compared to 20.9 ±7.4 ng/ml in controls. 25OHD values were lower in men than in women. Vitamin D deficiency was found in 82.2% of COVID-19 cases and 47.2% of population-based controls.
25OHD inversely correlate to serum ferritin and D-dimer levels. Vitamin D deficient COVID-19 patients had a greater prevalence of hypertension and cardiovascular diseases, raised serum ferritin and troponin levels, as well as a longer length of hospital stay than those with serum 25 OHD levels ? 20 ng/ml.”
While this particular study failed to find a correlation between vitamin D levels and disease severity, other studies have shown patients with higher levels do tend to have milder disease. In fact, one such study5,6 found your risk of developing a severe case of, and dying from, COVID-19 virtually disappears once your vitamin D level gets above 30 ng/mL (75 nmol/L).
Vitamin D’s Impact on COVID-19
Back in June 2020, I launched an information campaign about vitamin D that included the release of a downloadable scientific report. This report, as well as a two-minute COVID risk quiz is available on StopCovidCold.com.
October 31, 2020, my review paper7 “Evidence Regarding Vitamin D and Risk of COVID-19 and Its Severity,” co-written with William Grant, Ph.D., and Dr. Carol Wagner, both of whom are part of the GrassrootsHealth expert vitamin D panel, was also published in the peer-reviewed journal Nutrients. You can read the paper for free on the journal’s website. It will be officially published later this month.
As noted in that paper, dark skin color, increased age, pre-existing chronic conditions and vitamin D deficiency are all features of severe COVID disease, and of these, vitamin D deficiency is the only factor that is modifiable. As such, it would be foolish to ignore, especially since vitamin D supplements are readily available and low cost.
Vitamin D can reduce your risk of COVID-19 and other respiratory infections via several different mechanisms, including but not limited to the following, all of which are discussed in greater detail in our paper:8
Reducing the survival and replication of viruses9
Reducing inflammatory cytokine production
Maintaining endothelial integrity (Endothelial dysfunction contributes to vascular inflammation and impaired blood clotting, two hallmarks of severe COVID-19)
Increasing angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) concentrations. As explained in our paper:
“Angiotensin II is a natural peptide hormone best known for increasing blood pressure through stimulating aldosterone. ACE2 normally consumes angiotensin I, thereby lowering its concentrations. However, SARS-CoV-2 infection downregulates ACE2, leading to excessive accumulation of angiotensin II.
Cell cultures of human alveolar type II cells with vitamin D have shown that the SARS-CoV-2 virus interacts with the ACE2 receptor expressed on the surface of lung epithelial cells. Once the virus binds to the ACE2 receptor, it reduces its activity and, in turn, promotes ACE1 activity, forming more angiotensin II, which increases the severity of COVID-19.”
Vitamin D also boosts your overall immune function by modulating your innate and adaptive immune responses, reduces respiratory distress10 and improves overall lung function, helps produce surfactants in your lungs that aid in fluid clearance.11
It lowers your risk of comorbidities associated with poor COVID-19 prognosis, including obesity,12 Type 2 diabetes,13 high blood pressure14 and heart disease.15 All of these factors make it an important component of COVID-19 prevention and treatment.
Criteria for Causality Satisfied
As of September 27, 2020, the data from 14 observational studies — summarized in Table 1 of our paper16 — suggest that vitamin D blood levels are inversely correlated with the incidence and/or severity of COVID-19, and the evidence currently available generally satisfies Hill’s criteria for causality in a biological system, which include:17
Strength of association
Consistency of evidence
Plausibility (e.g., mechanisms)
Coherence (although it still needs to be verified experimentally)
COVID-19 Features Related to Vitamin D Status
In our paper,18 we review several features of COVID-19 that are indicative of vitamin D deficiency. For starters, SARS-CoV-2 emerged in the winter in the northern hemisphere, and as we moved into summer, positive tests, hospitalizations and death rates fell. So, generally, COVID-19 prevalence has been inversely correlated with solar UVB doses and vitamin D production.
Secondly, people with darker skin have higher COVID-19 case and death rates than Caucasians. Vitamin D is produced in your skin in response to sun exposure, but the darker your skin, the more sun exposure you need in order to maintain an optimal vitamin D level.
While a light-skinned individual may need only 10 to 15 minutes a day, a person with very dark skin may need upward of 1.5 hours. As a result, vitamin D deficiency tends to be far higher among Blacks and dark-skinned Hispanics.
Thirdly, one of the lethal hallmarks of COVID-19 is the cytokine storm that can develop in severe cases, which manifests as hyperinflammation and tissue damage. Vitamin D is known to regulate inflammatory cytokine production, thereby lowering this risk. Lastly, vitamin D is an important regulator of your immune system, and dysregulation of the immune system is a hallmark of severe COVID-19.
Findings From Largest Study to Date
The largest observational study19 to date was published in the journal PLOS ONE, September 17, 2020. It looked at data for 191,779 American patients with a mean age of 50 who were tested for SARS-CoV-2 between March and June 2020 and had had their vitamin D tested sometime in the preceding 12 months. It found:
12.5% of patients who had a vitamin D level below 20 ng/ml (deficiency) tested positive for SARS-CoV-2
8.1% of those who had a vitamin D level between 30 and 34 ng/ml (adequacy) tested positive for SARS-CoV-2
Only 5.9% of those who had an optimal vitamin D level of 55 ng/ml or higher tested positive for SARS-CoV-2
According to the authors:20
“SARS-CoV-2 positivity is strongly and inversely associated with circulating 25(OH)D levels, a relationship that persists across latitudes, races/ethnicities, both sexes, and age ranges. Our findings provide impetus to explore the role of vitamin D supplementation in reducing the risk for SARS-CoV-2 infection and COVID-19 disease.”
This inverse relationship between vitamin D and SARS-CoV-2 infection rates may be due to the fact that vitamin D reduces survival and replication of the virus by activating immune cells to produce the antimicrobial and antiviral peptides cathelicidin and defensins, and increasing concentrations of free ACE2, which prevents the virus from entering cells via the ACE2 receptor.21
Higher Vitamin D Lowers All Risks Associated With COVID-19
The argument for vitamin D optimization is strengthened by the fact that higher levels not only reduce your risk of testing positive for the virus but also cut the risk of severe illness, the need for hospitalization and mechanical ventilation, the length of hospitalization, and death. Examples of this include the following studies, which show vitamin D:
• Lowers infection rates — In the PLOS ONE study22 above, people with a vitamin D level of at least 55 ng/mL (138 nmol/L) had a 47% lower SARS-CoV-2 positivity rate compared to those with a level below 20 ng/mL (50 nmol/L). Even after adjustment for gender, age, ethnicity and latitude, the risk of having a positive test result was 43% lower among those with a vitamin D level of 55 ng/mL compared to those with a level of 20 ng/mL.
This was also confirmed in an Israeli population-based study23,24 published in July 2020. Here, those with a vitamin D level above 30 ng/mL (75 nmol/L) had a 59% lower risk of testing positive for SARS-CoV-2 compared to those with a vitamin D level between 20 ng/mL and 29 ng/mL (50 to 74 nmol/L), and a 58% lower risk compared to those with a vitamin D level below 20 ng/mL (50 nmol/L).
• Lowers hospitalization rates — The Israeli analysis25 above also found that among individuals who tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 infection, those who had a vitamin D level below 30 ng/mL had a 1.95 times (crude odds ratio) to 2.09 times (odds ratio after adjustment for demographics and psychiatric and somatic disorders) higher risk of being hospitalized for COVID-19.
In other words, having a vitamin D level below 30 ng/mL about doubled the risk of being hospitalized with COVID-19.
• Lowers need for intensive care — Vitamin D, when administered to hospitalized patients, can also lower their risk of needing intensive care. This was demonstrated by Spanish researchers in a small randomized clinical study26,27,28,29 published online August 29, 2020.
Hospitalized COVID-19 patients given supplemental calcifediol (a vitamin D3 analog) in addition to standard of care — which included the use of hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin — had significantly lower intensive care unit admissions.
Patients in the vitamin D arm received 532 micrograms of calcifediol on the day of admission (equivalent to 106,400 IUs of vitamin D30) followed by 266 mcg on Days 3 and 7 (equivalent to 53,200 IUs31). After that, they received 266 mcg once a week until discharge, ICU admission or death.
Of those receiving calcifediol, only 2% required ICU admission, compared to 50% of those who did not get calcifediol. None of those given vitamin D supplementation died, compared to 7.6% of those in the standard care group.
• Reduces severity of COVID-19 — An August 2020 study32,33 published in the journal Nutrients found patients who had a vitamin D level below 12 ng/mL (30 nmol/L) had a 6.12 times higher risk of severe disease requiring invasive mechanical ventilation.
Studies have also shown vitamin D deficiency is a common factor among hospitalized patients diagnosed with COVID-19 related respiratory failure. One such study34 found 81% of the patients with acute respiratory failure due to COVID-19 had vitamin D levels below 30 ng/ml (75 nmol/L); 24% had severe vitamin D deficiency (?10 ng/ml or ?25 nmol/L).
• Reduces mortality — The Nutrients study35,36 above also found having a vitamin D level below 12 ng/mL (30 nmol/L) raised the risk of death by 14.7 times, compared to having a vitamin D level above 12 ng/mL.
Similarly, researchers in Indonesia found37 those with a vitamin D level between 21 ng/mL (50 nmol/L) and 29 ng/mL (75 nmol/L) had a 12.55 times higher risk of death than those with a level above 30 ng/mL (75 nmol/L), and having a level below 20 ng/mL (50 nmol/L) was associated with a 19.12 times higher risk of death.
In an Iranian study,38,39 among COVID-19 patients over the age of 40 who had vitamin D levels below 30 ng/mL (75 nmol/L), 20% died, compared to 9.7% of those with levels at or above 30 ng/mL. Among those with a vitamin D level of at least 40 ng/mL (100 nmol/L), only 6.3% died.
The Role of Magnesium and Vitamin K2
While regular sun exposure is the ideal way to optimize your vitamin D level, this can be nearly impossible during the winter. For this reason, an oral vitamin D3 supplement is recommended for most people. However, when supplementing you also need to be mindful of other nutrients that have synergistic effects.
One of them is magnesium, which is required for the conversion of vitamin D into its active form. Without sufficient amounts of magnesium, your body cannot properly utilize the vitamin D you’re taking.40,41,42,43
According to a scientific review44,45 published in 2018, as many as 50% of Americans taking vitamin D supplements may not get significant benefit as the vitamin D simply gets stored in its inactive form, and the reason for this is because they have insufficient magnesium levels. Research46 published in 2013 also highlighted this issue, concluding that higher magnesium intake helps reduce your risk of vitamin D deficiency by activating more of it.
Another cofactor is vitamin K2, as it helps prevent complications associated with excessive calcification in your arteries. In fact, relative vitamin K2 deficiency is typically what produces symptoms of “vitamin D toxicity.”
If you live in the northern hemisphere, which is currently heading toward winter, now is the time to check your vitamin D level and start taking action to raise it if you’re below 40 ng/mL (100 nmol/L). Experts recommend a vitamin D level between 40 and 60 ng/mL (100 to 150 nmol/L).
An easy and cost-effective way of measuring your vitamin D level is to order GrassrootsHealth’s vitamin D testing kit. Also, if you haven’t already visited www.StopCovidCold.com please do so now so you can take your free COVID risk test and also grab a free PDF copy with far better graphics than I was able to put in my recently published Nutrients paper.
Once you know your current vitamin D level, use the GrassrootsHealth vitamin D calculator48 to determine how much vitamin D you might need to reach your target level. Again, to optimize vitamin D absorption and utilization, be sure to take your vitamin D with vitamin K2 and magnesium.
Lastly, remember to retest in three to four months to make sure you’ve reached your target level. If you have, then you know you’re taking the correct dosage. If you’re still low (or have reached a level above 80 ng/mL), you’ll need to adjust your dosage accordingly and retest again in another three to four months.
Research has linked coffee and tea to several health benefits, including a recent study from Japan demonstrating those with diabetes who drink green tea and coffee experience a reduction in all-cause mortality.1 These results corroborate the impact beverage choices have on your health. At one end of the spectrum is soda, arguably one of the absolute worst choices of beverage to drink.
At the other end is pure water, the best for quenching your thirst and supporting optimal health. But there are times when you’re looking for something to savor and sip. In these instances, an excellent alternative is coffee or tea, both of which have earned a solid spot among healthy beverages.
After water, coffee and tea are the most commonly consumed beverages worldwide and one of the top sources of caffeine and antioxidant polyphenols in the U.S.2,3 One study was developed seeking to determine the impact drinking green tea or coffee would have on a population of people with diabetes.4
Coffee and Tea Lower Mortality With Type 2 Diabetes
What the researchers found suggests green tea and coffee consumption is associated with a lower risk of all-cause mortality. Past studies have evaluated the effect of regularly drinking tea or coffee on health, but few were carried out on a population of people with diabetes.5
The team tracked 4,923 people in Japan with a diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes whose average age was 66 for approximately five years. The participants were enrolled in the Fukuoka Diabetes Registry and each filled out a survey, as well as provided background on their lifestyle choices, such as alcohol consumption, number of hours of sleep each night, exercise and smoking.
During the study 309 of the participants died. The main causes were cancer and cardiovascular disease. The researchers compared the number who had a history of drinking neither coffee nor tea against those who drank one or both. They found people with the lowest potential for death drank the highest amount of coffee and green tea.
After analysis, the data showed drinking one cup of green tea daily lowered the potential for all-cause mortality by 15%. The potential for death lowered further in people who drank more. For instance, two to three cups of green tea were linked to a 27% lower risk and four or more were linked to a 40% lower risk.
Similar risk reduction was found in people with diabetes who drank coffee daily: One cup was linked with a 12% lower risk and two or more were linked with a 41% lower risk. However, in the group of individuals who drank both green tea and coffee every day, two to three cups of green tea plus two or more cups of coffee lowered their risk by 51% and four or more cups of green tea and one cup of coffee lowered their risk by 58%.
The combination of four cups of green tea and two or more cups of coffee reduced the risk of all-cause mortality by a whopping 63%. The researchers reported there was a 99.5% follow up rate that enabled them to “accurately investigate the association.”6 The researchers acknowledge there were some limitations, including the study was observational, meaning it cannot establish cause.
The data were also gathered from subjective assessments of the participants; other potentially influential factors, such as income and education, were not gathered. Finally, the green tea sold in Japan may not be the same type of tea found in other countries. The scientists wrote:7
“To date, no study has investigated the combined effect of green tea and coffee consumption on all-cause mortality. The present study determined that combined higher green tea and coffee consumption markedly reduced mortality.
Further, this cohort study included potential confounders, such as sleep duration, diabetic complications, lifestyle, physical activity, laboratory data, and medications. In conclusion, this prospective cohort study demonstrated that greater consumption of green tea and coffee was significantly associated with reduced all-cause mortality: the effects may be additive.”
Past Data Suggests Similar Effect in the General Population
Coffee and tea are rich in beneficial antioxidants and other plant compounds that have positive effects on your heart and brain health, weight loss and the prevention of chronic diseases. The results of years of study have found:
Moderate coffee drinking reduces your chances of being hospitalized for heart rhythm problems.8
Coffee may trigger a 30% increase in blood flow in your small blood vessels, including those around the heart.9
One meta-analysis included data from 11 studies and nearly 480,000 people and found drinking two to six cups of coffee a day was associated with a lower risk of stroke.10
In a study of 25,138 people, those who drank a moderate amount of coffee lowered the prevalence of coronary atherosclerosis.11
The chlorogenic acid (CGA) in coffee protects neurons from glutamate neurotoxicity, which suggests it may have benefits for neurodegenerative diseases such as ischemic stroke.12
Drinking three to five cups of coffee a day in middle age has been associated with a decreased risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease later in life.13
Among people with mild cognitive impairment (MCI), those with higher blood levels of caffeine from drinking coffee were less likely to progress to full-blown dementia.14
The polyphenols found in coffee have anticancer properties as demonstrated in a recent study of people with advanced or metastatic colorectal cancer. Those who drank two to three cups each day had a lower risk of disease progression and death.15
Green tea reduces all-cause mortality, cardiovascular disease and blood pressure and oxidative stress.16
Green tea has an immediate effect on endothelial function, helping the arteries to relax.17
Drinking six or more cups of green tea daily lowered risk of developing Type 2 diabetes by 33% more than those who consumed less than one cup per week.18
Habitual tea drinkers had a lower risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease and all-cause mortality, had a 1.26 year longer life expectancy and lived 1.41 years longer without atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease.19
A 2% green tea mouthwash reduced plaque and gingivitis after 28 days,20 and demonstrated the ability to improve the antibacterial action of saliva.21
Drinking green tea is associated with a reduced risk of depression,22 obesity23 and ischemic heart and brain disease (stroke),24 and better vision.25
Compound in Green Tea Improves Zinc Absorption
In addition to the multiple benefits of green tea listed above, one polyphenol found in green tea, epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), helps zinc move into your cells where it can stop the replication of viruses. Zinc is an essential mineral found throughout your body and a cofactor in nearly 3,000 proteins.26
One of the effective treatments for early symptoms of COVID-19 is the combination of hydroxychloroquine and zinc.27 The hydroxychloroquine acts as a zinc ionophore, helping the zinc move across the cell membranes and into the cell where it can stop the progression of viral replication.28,29
However, hydroxychloroquine is not the only zinc ionophore. One lab study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry several years before the pandemic demonstrated EGCG and quercetin were effective zinc ionophore compounds.30 Both are flavonoids and act as antioxidants and signaling molecules.
Choose Organic and Ditch the Dairy
To enjoy the benefits of coffee and tea it’s important to remember that quality is key. Most coffee produced is heavily contaminated with pesticides and may be one of the most heavily sprayed crops.31 When I speak about the benefits of coffee it should be understood I am talking about organic (ideally fair trade) pesticide-free coffee.
Another disadvantage is that ground beans survive only a week before losing flavor. The rate of change increases dramatically as the beans are ground. So, another basic principle is to grind your own coffee beans. Overall, the healthiest form is organically grown, freshly ground coffee that is served black without milk or sugar.
Adding dairy could interfere with absorption of chlorogenic acids, and sugar contributes to insulin resistance. If you’re using a drip coffee maker be sure to use nonbleached filters since some of the chlorine leaches into the coffee during the brewing process.
When you’re choosing tea, seek out loose leaf tea since many of the current tea bags are made with plastic. These bags can leak up to 11.6 billion microplastic pieces and 3.1 billion nanoplastics with every cup you drink.32 Consider adding a squeeze of lemon juice to your tea, which may help stabilize the beneficial catechins so you can absorb more of them.33
There are three main varieties of tea: green, black and oolong. The differences have to do with how the leaves are processed. Interestingly, EGCG is sensitive to water temperature, so brewing in 80 degrees Celsius or 176 degrees Fahrenheit releases only 60% of the EGCG from the tea leaf.34 Hotter temperatures may help you get even more antioxidants out of your tea.
