“Politics is more dangerous than war, for in war you are only killed once” Winston Churchill.

As we persevere in the age of Covid 19, scientists have alerted the medical community of the need for us to alert patients about the importance of vitamin D. Vitamin D is not actually a vitamin, but an essential hormone which the immune system requires in order to function properly.

Dr. Gareth Davies PHD of the Imperial College in London states “ If vitamin D levels are high, the innate immune system is strong. This is the first line of defense the body employs when a pathogen first invades. In many cases, the innate immune response can entirely deal with an invasion before it takes hold.” Dr. Davies recommends 4000 i.u. of vitamin D per day as an immune system supplement.
