Why you should be taking Dr. Wolz Vitamin D 4000
The Vitamin D 4000 Dr. Wolz demonstrated health benefits during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Vitamin D has numerous positive effects on the body, according to the National Institutes of Health. It is the rare vitamin that actually prevents disease: a deficiency leads to the bone disease rickets. For this reason, vitamin D is routinely fortified into milk and other dairy products. Bone health is another prominent condition it supports, as vitamin D is the transport mechanism for calcium. That’s why the Institutes of Medicine set its Daily Value at 600 IU and a deficiency blood level at 20 ng/ml.
But that’s not the only health issue vitamin D supports. It has also been shown to help prevent breast. prostate and ovarian cancer. Other research shows efficacy against upper respiratory tract infections such as colds and flu—and that’s why it seems to reduce the effects of COVID-19 in patients. Nearly 100 studies have looked at vitamin D as a treatment for COVID-19, and another 139 compared vitamin D sufficiency and COVID-19 patients’ outcomes.
“Vitamin D status prior to infection is an excellent predictor of Covid Disease severity, morbidity and mortality,” said Kenn Israel, founder and manager of Innovation Nutrition Consulting. “There are clear mechanisms of action for vitamin D. This is likely not a coincidental relationship but a causative one.”
Naturopaths have long advocated for minimum levels at 40 ng/ml, even as high as 60. Research shows that a daily dose of Dr. Wolz Vitamin D 4000 should be enough to get a person to the 40 ng/ml mark.
VITAL study’s lead researcher, JoAnn E. Manson, M.D., noted that the vitamin D supplements reduced the risk of developing autoimmune conditions like rheumatoid arthritis and psoriasis 22% and advanced cancer 17%. She also noted a study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association – the other top medical journal in the country—showing vitamin D helped improve COVID-19 outcomes.
Additionally, the National Institutes of Health reports that 42% of Americans have a vitamin D deficiency.
The Council of Responsible Nutrition (CRN) previously highlighted “significant links” found in most (but not all) of 13 meta-analyses from more than 100 clinical trials on COVID-19 and vitamin D.
Luke Huber, vice president of scientific and regulatory affairs at CRN says that “The data does suggest that vitamin D levels may play a role, in combination with other therapies, in strengthening the immune system to resist the virus.”
