The National Academy of Medicine recommends providing vitamin D supplements to patients with Covid-19, if necessary.
Indeed, the National Academy of Medicine explains that vitamin D is a “prohormone synthesized in the dermis under the effect of ultraviolet rays, that is to say the rays of the sun”. It is responsible for “intestinal absorption of calcium and bone health” but also has “unconventional effects”.
Thus, vitamin D in this way modulates the immune system “by stimulating macrophages and dendritic cells” and thus “plays a role in the regulation and suppression of the inflammatory cytokine response that causes acute respiratory distress syndrome which characterizes the severe and often lethal forms of Covid-19 “.
