Vitamin D Suppresses the Cytokine Storm
In this podcast, we’re going to talk about what vitamin D can do for the cytokine storm.
A cytokine storm is basically what’s really killing the majority of people who die from COVID-19. But, it’s only deadly if the person’s immune system is malfunctioning.
There is a really interesting study that compared the two countries with the highest mortality rates from COVID-19 to the countries with the lowest mortality rates from COVID-19. They looked at their vitamin D levels. They found a correlation between the higher mortality rates and low vitamin D. Not only that; they found a strong correlation between vitamin D and cytokine storm. People that had the most vitamin D did not have the cytokine storm.
Vitamin D is an immune modulator. It controls the amount of inflammation within the immune system.
A cytokine is a signaling protein that can:
• Increase the number of white blood cells
• Cause inflammation
• Suppress inflammation
• Stimulate angiogenesis (the growth of new blood vessels)
Just like how your immune system has strategies to fight off pathogens, pathogens have strategies to survive and counter attacks.
During a cytokine storm, there is a hyperinflammatory reaction going on that creates a lot of damage in the body.
Vitamin D may be able to help suppress cytokines. But, if your immune system is already healthy, you don’t really have to worry about anything.
