Vitamin D and COVID-19

Vitamin D and COVID-19

Winter is in full-swing and with rising coronavirus cases throughout the world, it's more important than ever for your immune system to operate efficiently.

One way to support your immune system is with Vitamin D. Many people suffer from a lack of Vitamin D during the winter months while they are stuck indoors during the shorter days. Vitamin D can also help regulate your mood and is often recommended for people dealing with seasonal depression.

When it comes to COVID-19, an article from Harvard Medical School states that Vitamin D may protect against COVID-19 in two ways:

  1. Vitamin D may help boost our bodies' natural defense against viruses and bacteria.
  2. Vitamin D may help prevent an exaggerated inflammatory response, which has been shown to contribute to severe illness in some people with COVID-19.

At Vera Roasting Company, we've come up with a way to help you get more Vitamin D into your diet. Our Sunshine Blend Coffee is made using our patented infusion technology which allows us to infuse each cup of coffee with resveratrol and 400 IUs of Vitamin D3 per cup. Try it today!
