Vitamins D and E – the Taliban in the COVID-19 war

Despite the massive censorship all over the Internet, there have been plenty of articles and studies on vitamin D and its role in COVID-19.

Vitamin D improves ovarian reserves in women with infertility

Vitamin D may treat (opioid) “addiction”

In addition, it demonstrated decrease in lean mass in the deficient … Read more

Vitamin D can force cancer cells to differentiate back into normal

Danny and I already discussed this topic on a recent podcast, but I decided to post the studies anyways, considering how important the topic is. While progesterone and testosterone are the most well-known differentiating factors in humans, the role of vitamin D has gone largely unnoticed. The studies below demonstrate that vitamin D is a … Read more

Nine out of ten COVID-19 deaths may be due to vitamin D deficiency

A remarkable claim in this study, but not really surprising to people who have been studying the vitamin D effects on the immune system. While the study was observational, as the authors explain, the correlation between vitamin D insufficiency and COVID-19 mortality was so high that the authors do not think any other explanation is … Read more
