Vitamin D

I have often discussed the importance of vitamin D in helping protect you from COVID-19. In fact, numerous studies have shown that people with low vitamin D levels are much more likely to die if they catch COVID-19. The research is so convincing that even Dr. Fauci says that he takes vitamin D supplements for this very reason. And he rarely recommends any natural treatments for health issues!
