    Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Zinc, and COVID - Prevention of COVID

    Does colder temperature make you more prone to getting a cold Or COVID?
    Most health experts agree that people spend more time indoors and close contact with other people when it's cold, which increases germs spread.
    Also, experts believe that our immune system may be more active when our body is warmer, as in during the summer months.

    00:38 - Do Colder Temperatures make you more prone to getting COVID?
    02:52 - Why are COVID more likely to cause infections in winter?
    03:20 - Vitamin D and COVID
    07:20 - Vitamin C and COVID
    09:47 - Zinc and COVID

    Back in 2007, there was this study…

    - In this particular study looking at the spread of the influenza virus, they put guinea pigs together in a chamber and carried out different environmental experiments on them. They found that low relative humidities of 20%–35% were most favorable for infection, while the transmission was blocked entirely at high humidity of 80%.
    They also found that when guinea pigs were kept at 5 °C, transmission occurred with greater frequency than at 20 °C, while at 30 °C, no transmission was detected.
    The authors concluded that low relative humidities produced by indoor heating and cold
    temperatures favored the spread of the influenza virus.

    I also want to add that cold weather, by itself, can cause a runny nose without necessarily
    having a cold allows for the virus to be carried in those secretions, which probably facilitates transmission.

    40% of common colds are caused by rhinoviruses. The second most common cause of cold is the coronavirus, the normal one, not this covid.
    Its been shown that the rhinovirus reproduces more quickly at cooler temperatures means you might catch a cold more quickly if you're chilly.

    And this probably applies to the coronavirus as well.

    It's likely that with the combination of all of these 5 factors, meaning cooler temp, lower humidity, people staying indoors more often in winter months, cold weather causing runny noses, and our immune system is more active when it's warmer, these combinations of factors likely explain why colds, flu, and COVID are more likely to cause infections in the winter months.

    But there is likely a 6th factor as well. And that is vitamin D. Our bodies don't usually make vitamin D unless we get sunlight. In the winter months, for most of us in this world, we don't get enough sunlight to make enough vitamin D. Unless you live warm, maybe you are the exception. So if you aren't getting enough sunlight in the winter months, that means you have to get enough vitamin D in your diet. And if you don't do that, you will have low vitamin D levels. Vitamin D helps regulate or Calcium levels and is essential for bone and muscle health. It also plays a role in regulating our immune system, but its exact role is not known.

    Why is this important for the common cold, flu, and perhaps with this novel, the coronavirus that's causing COVID? Well, vitamin D doesn't affect these viruses themselves. Instead, it affects our immune systems.

    So what is my recommendation for taking Vitamin D?
    The best thing to do is check with your doctor to see if you might have low vitamin D, and if it is low, you'll def need to get more vitamin D, especially during the winter months.

    Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin. It is vital to white blood cells that help fight infections and overall immune system health. Vitamin C is also essential for iron absorption, and being deficient in iron can make you more vulnerable to infections in general.
    The normal, recommended daily intake of vitamin C for adults from the diet and/or supplements is 75 to 120 mg. In addition, you can get about 80 to 90 mg from a cup of orange juice or sliced orange, or even more from kiwi fruit or a cup of sweet peppers.

    Zinc has become one of the most popular suggestions for reducing symptoms of COVID.
    Some studies showed that zinc reduces the duration of a cold by half, while others showed no effect. Another study found that the type of zinc taken determined the result—zinc gluconate lozenges that provided 13.3 milligrams (mg) of zinc lessened the duration of colds, but zinc acetate lozenges that provided 5 mg or 11.5 mg of zinc did not.

    COVID-19 Update 59 with Roger Seheult, MD of

    We recorded this video in response to your comments asking what Dr. Seheult's daily regimen is - to optimize his immune system and minimize COVID-19 risk. In the absence of good clinical data that is specific to SARS-CoV-2, Dr. Seheult discusses supplements, sleep, and his daily disinfection routine when removing PPE, getting in his car, and returning home from the hospital. We look forward to more randomized, blinded, placebo-control studies in the future that will build upon the current body of evidence as it relates to immunity and specifically coronaviruses such as SARS-CoV-2.

  • Vitamin C and Zinc Studies Report - COVID Update

    8:43

    Vitamin C and Zinc Studies Report - COVID Update

    Welcome to another COVID Update, based on a recent study that gave vitamin C and Zinc for mild COVID illness. Zinc gluconate and vitamin C, aka ascorbic acid, are commonly available over-the-counter supplements that people often take to treat viral diseases. Zinc is known to play a role in our immune function by helping to produce antibodies, in addition to enhancing our white blood cell's ability to fight infection, especially when it comes to neutrophils, a type of white blood cell. There is also some evidence that zinc deficiency increases pro-inflammatory cytokines.

    ---------------------------------------------

    Studies on the first SARS virus have shown that zinc might inhibit its ribonucleic acid polymerase, which allows the virus to replicate its RNA. But the biological activity of zinc against viruses may require ionophores like Pyrithione to accomplish this. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that may play a role in our immune system's ability to fight infection. In vitro and in vivo studies in chicks have shown that they could protect against covid. Human trials have found that it may decrease susceptibility to viral respiratory infections. When it comes to the common cold, there is limited evidence to suggest that high doses of oral vitamin C and zinc might reduce the duration of symptoms and decrease the severity of symptoms.

    But what does that mean for zinc in real life?
    Based on a review of 13 studies, if zinc is taken within 24 hours of the first signs of a cold, it might reduce a mean length by a day. And with vitamin C, some research suggests that it can shorten colds by 8% in adults and 14% in kids, but it doesn't appear helpful if taken after the symptoms start. Vitamin C in the INTRAVENOUS form has also been looked at for non-COVID patients is variable. A meta-analysis review investigated its use in critically ill patients. It failed to show a significant association with mortality but inconsistent associations with secondary endpoints, including duration of patients requiring a breathing tube with a ventilator and length of stay in the hospital.

    But what about zinc and vitamin C for the treatment of COVID?
    The COVID A to Z study was a prospective randomized clinical open-label trial at multiple hospitals within a single health system, involving sites in Ohio and Florida. Enrolled participants remained in their own home settings, and all study visits and/or procedures were conducted virtually via telephone, email, computer, or laptop. So we are not talking about hospitalized COVID patients. We're talking about patients with mild, perhaps moderate, illness here. A total of 214 patients were randomized, 132 women, 82 men, and 45.

    Patients were randomized in a 1:1:1:1 ratio, meaning 1/4th received vitamin C, 1/4th received zinc, 1/4th received both vitamin C and zinc, and 1/4th received neither, just standard of care, which is nothing more than rest, hydration, and maybe some Tylenol or ibuprofen, but no supplements. The vitamin C group received 10 days of 8,000 mg vitamin C after being diagnosed with COVID based on PCR testing. The zinc group received 50 mg of zinc gluconate at bedtime. The zinc and vitamin C group received 8,000 mg of vitamin C and 50 mg of zinc.

    So we are talking big doses here, much more than what most people take. Patients then tracked their symptoms daily, including potential side effects from vitamin c and zinc. During the study, patients admitted to the hospital were considered treatment failures and were no longer required to continue study supplementation or track their daily symptoms. The trial's primary endpoint was the number of days required to reach a 50% reduction in symptom severity from the peak symptom score. Secondary endpoints were the number of days required to get a total symptom severity score of 0, cumulative severity score at day 5, hospitalizations, deaths, adjunctive prescribed medications, and adverse effects of vitamin C and Zinc.

    NOTE: While the study discussed in this Q&A and others have linked vitamin D levels to immune function, it is important to note that vitamin D supplementation has not been shown to be preventive of or a treatment for COVID-19. Vaccinations and public health measures such as masking and distancing are the best tools for preventing the spread of SARS-CoV-2.

    Vitamin D and COVID NEW Studies - Evidence for a Protective Role of Vitamin D in COVID

    Vitamin D Supplements in COVID, how much proof do we need?
    Vitamin D has been maligned and praised throughout 2020 and into 2021.

    As a cheap supplement that nearly everyone has access to, why is it getting so much attention?
    Many studies show a strong association between vitamin D deficiency and increased numbers and severity of respiratory infections. These studies show a relationship between vitamin D supplements and COVID, not that vitamin D deficiency causes COVID. This distinction is important because a third variable may actually be responsible for the effect. Imagine studying 100 people who have double the number of respiratory infections per year compared to the baseline population. They all have low levels of vitamin D.

    Is having low levels of vitamin D cause their increased risk of respiratory infections?
    Maybe they live in a crowded, understaffed nursing home. They do not get outside and eat a poor diet. These factors could explain the increased risk for infection and the low vitamin D levels. But you would not know that unless you were looking for it or structured your study to remove the effect of other variables that are not measured. Here are five studies that support the relationship between vitamin D deficiency and more severe respiratory diseases.

    Researchers in Germany followed 9548 adults aged 50-75 for 15 years to evaluate their respiratory disease mortality. Among study participants, 44 percent had low vitamin D levels, and 15 percent were deficient. Overall, after adjusting for gender, age, the season of blood draw, school education, BMI, physical activity, and fish consumption, 41 percent of respiratory disease mortality was statistically because of low vitamin D levels. A meta-analysis published in the British Medical Journal in 2017 reviewed 25 randomized, double-blind, controlled trials with 11,321 participants. Vitamin D supplements reduced each individual's risk by at least one respiratory infection. When all the results were averaged together, there was a slight protective effect. While daily and weekly doses of vitamin D reduced risk, single large doses of vitamin D did not. Protective effects of vitamin D were greatest in those with the lowest vitamin D levels.

    In a retrospective study in 2020, Quest Diagnostics in the U.S. looked at the labs for vitamin D levels and SARS-CoV-2 positivity for 191,779 de-identified participants. The authors found a strong inverse relationship between vitamin D levels and SARS positivity that persisted across latitudes, races/ethnicities., sexes, and age ranges. They found the risk of being positive for SARS-CoV-2 was 1.6% lower with each vitamin D increase by 1 ng/ml. A previous study showed that for every 4ng/ml increase in vitamin D, there was a 7% decrease in risk for seasonal respiratory infections.

    When researchers at the University of Chicago Medicine reviewed the health records of 489 patients who had vitamin D testing within the previous year, they found that the relative risk for testing positive for COVID was 1.77 times greater for vitamin D deficient patients when compared to those who were not. In addition, two-thirds of the study participants were non-white, and 47 percent had a BMI greater than or equal to 30 (obese). Though the results were significant, the authors point out that this was a retrospective study. Thus, unknown confounding variables may increase the risk for both vitamin D deficiency and COVID.

    What is my recommendation for taking Vitamin D?
    The best thing to do is check with your doctor to see if you might have low vitamin D, and if it is low, you’ll def need to get more vitamin D, especially during the winter months.

    A common question is, How much Vitamin D should I take a day?
    Personally, I take 1,000 IU per day.

  • Vitamin D levels advised

    40:32

    Read the link to the original paper,


    Deficiency of vit D limits the performance of systems resulting in, increased spread of diseases of civilization

    Reduced protection against infections

    Reduced effectiveness of vaccination

    Covid fatality rates correlate with,

    Elderly, dark, black people, comorbidities, winter

    Blood level of 20 ng/mL, (50 nmol/L) sufficient to stop osteomalacia

    Preferable, 40–60 ng/mL (100 to 150 nmol/L)

    Vitamin D3 receptors

    Bone

    Intestine

    Pancreas

    Prostate

    Immune system cells

    Vitamin D is a powerful epigenetic regulator

    Influencing more than 2,500 genes

    Cancer

    Diabetes mellitus

    Acute respiratory tract infections

    Viral lung infections that cause ARDS

    Chronic inflammatory diseases

    Autoimmune diseases

    Multiple sclerosis

    Immunomodulatory properties

    Regulating innate and adaptive immune systems

    D3 receptors

    Monocytes/macrophages

    T cells

    B cells

    Natural killer (NK) cells

    Dendritic cells (DCs)

    Supplements

    Without calcium supplementation, even very high vitamin D3 supplementation does not cause vascular calcification

    Vitamin D3 supplementation in the range of 4000 to 10,000 units (100 to 250 µg) needed to generate an optimal 40–60 ng/mL (100 to 150 nmol/L)

    has been shown to be completely safe when combined with approximately 200 µg vitamin K2



    However, this knowledge is still not widespread in the medical community, and obsolete warnings about the risks of vitamin D3 overdoses unfortunately are still commonly circulating.

    ARDS and cytokine release syndrome

    Vitamin D3 is able to inhibit the underlying metabolic pathways

    Vitamin D3 has a protective role against ARDS caused by SARS-CoV-2.

    A rapidly increasing number of publications are investigating the vitamin D3 status of SARS-CoV-2 patients,

    and have confirmed low vitamin D levels in cases of severe courses of infection

    and positive results of vitamin D3 treatments

    Conclusions

    we recommend raising serum 25(OH)D levels to above 50 ng/mL (100 to 150 nmol/L)

    to prevent or mitigate new outbreaks due to escape mutations or decreasing antibody activity.

    At a time when vaccination was not yet available,

    patients with sufficiently high D3 serum levels preceding the infection were highly unlikely to suffer a fatal outcome.

    This correlation should have been good news when vaccination was not available but instead was widely ignored.

    the lower threshold for healthy vitamin D levels should lie at approximately 125 nmol/L or 50 ng/mL 25(OH)D3,

    which would save most lives, reducing the impact even for patients with various comorbidities.

    This is—to our knowledge—the first study that aimed to determine an optimum D3 level to minimize COVID-19 mortality

    Implications for herd immunity

    It seems clear that a good immune defense,

    does not prove protection against physical infection

    but rather against its consequences

    This “protection” was most effective at ~55 ng/mL

    Traditionally living populations in East Africa have a mean serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D concentration of 115 nmol/l


    natural vitamin D3 levels seen among traditional hunter/gatherer lifestyles,

    in a highly infectious environment,

    were 110–125 nmol/L (45–50 ng/mL)

    WHO advice may not be correct

    30 ng/mL D3 value considered by the WHO as the threshold for sufficiency

    Future mutations of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, vaccine immune escape

    the entire population should raise their serum vitamin D level to a safe level as soon as possible.

    As long as enough vitamin K2 is provided, the suggested D3 levels are entirely safe to achieve by supplementation.

    Selenium, magnesium, zinc, and vitamins A and E should also be controlled for and supplemented where necessary to optimize the conditions for a well-functioning immune system.

    Next study

    test PCR-positive contacts of an infected person for D3 levels immediately, i.e.,

    before the onset of any symptoms,

    and then follow them for 4 weeks and relate the course of their symptomatology to the D3 level,

    the same result as shown above must be obtained

  • Vitamin D studies confirm correlations

    Routine screening of vitamin D levels and prescribing of Vitamin D is not advisable.

    Both clinical symptoms and risk factors must be present before measuring Vitamin D levels (25OHD).

    As yet there is no clear evidence to prove the risks from non-symptomatic Vitamin D deficiency.

    Hypervitaminosis D was defined at serum 25-OH-vitamin D more than160 nmol/L (64 ng / ml)

    Results:

    382 samples were identified as the first record of hypervitaminosis D

    39 presented hypercalcemia (10.2%)

    Some had 25-OH-vitamin D levels between 161 and 375 nmol/L.

    (most subjects presented hypercalcemia at serum concentrations of 25-OH-vitamin D less than 375 nmol/L, 150 ng / ml)

    In 15 subjects, hypercalcemia could be directly attributed to vitamin D

    In no case, serum calcium achieved concentrations considered as critical values (more than13 mg/dl).

    Conclusion

    Hypercalcemia due to vitamin D represented less than 4% of the total hypervitaminosis D detected

    Less than 0.1% of the tests performed.

    Healthline



    No strong evidence proves that moderate amounts of vitamin D are harmful without an adequate intake of vitamin K. However, research is ongoing, and the picture might become clearer in the near future.

  • Coronavirus Pandemic Update 69: NAC Supplementation and COVID-19

    26:46

    COVID-19 Update 69 with Roger Seheult, MD of
    N-Acetylcysteine (NAC) is an over the counter supplement that has been utilized by clinicians for years to treat acetaminophen (Tylenol) overdose, as a mucolytic, and for other medical problems. There is compelling research that NAC may also reduce the severity of viral infections like influenza, and perhaps reduce the risk of blood clots (thromboembolism) as well. Could NAC be effective in COVID-19? Dr. Seheult illustrates these ideas and discusses the peer-reviewed data involved.

    Can vitamins help your body fight COVID-19?

  • Can Vitamin C help prevent COVID-19?

    2:26

    Vitamin C has lately been of interest to researchers in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Large doses of intravenous Vitamin C are being tried in COVID-19 critical patients on ventilators in China.
    Australian researchers reported that they did not find any benefit in using Vitamin C. But the U.S. is planning to try a combination of Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Zinc and hydroxychloroquine for COVID-19 prevention.
    There is still no evidence to prove consuming a high amount of vitamin C is effective against coronavirus. According to Chennai-based Nephrologist Dr. Rajan Ravichandran, caution is required in consuming mega doses of vitamins without prescriptions, especially for long periods.
    Vitamin C or Ascorbic acid is a water-soluble essential nutrient. Being water-soluble, it is not stored in the body and requires daily intake.
    It is a powerful antioxidant with an important role in controlling infections and promoting healing of wounds. Its many functions include synthesis of collagen, chemical messengers in the brain and hormones.
    The source of Vitamin C is fruits and vegetables like oranges and lemons. After consumption, the absorbed Vitamin C is metabolised in the body to oxalate and is removed by the kidneys. 
    Large doses of Vitamin C have been used to improve the immunity and promote wound healing. Normally the body can cope with this high dose by reducing the absorption and increasing the oxalate loss in urine. But in some people, the oxalate can get deposited in the kidneys resulting in kidney failure. This is likely in patients with intestinal disorders and pre-existing kidney disease.
    The daily requirement of Vitamin C is 90mg in adult males, 75mg for females which increases to 120 mg during pregnancy. 
    Deficiency of Vitamin C is rare and but when it occurs, it is called scurvy. The deficiency can manifest with bleeding gums, delayed wound healing, skin spots, hair loss and anaemia.

    Will taking extra vitamins or supplement help you ward off coronavirus?
    According to the Huff Post, health experts says there’s scant evidence that supports taking supplements to prevent COVID-19.
    A review of vitamin D showed that there is no link between a deficiency and likelihood of contracting COVID.
    Supplementing didn’t seem to treat or prevent it either, and doctors say that taking over a suggested regular dose of vitamins could be dangerous.
    Michael Roizen, chief wellness officer for Cleveland Clinic explained, Don’t take a multivitamin and a bunch of other things, like vitamin water or extra B vitamins.
    Most of the experts interviewed suggest focusing on eating balanced, healthy meals to strength your immune system.

    Should Kids Take Vitamins | What Age Do Children Need Vitamins | Best Baby Vitamins | Multi vitamins For Children | Do Breastfed Babies Need Vitamins | Healthy Start Vitamin Drops

    Hey guys! This weeks video is all about vitamin supplements for children and why you should be giving them to children aged six months to five years.

    I was quite shocked when I recently read research that was presented at the Welsh Paediatric Society autumn clinical meeting. Researchers in Wales found only 30% of parents and carers said they had ever been given advice by a health professional about giving young children vitamin supplements. And nearly two-thirds (64%) of those asked said they didn't give their children vitamin supplements.

    DO CHILDREN NEED VITAMINS?
    The Department of Health (DoH) recommends all children aged 6 months to 5 years should be given supplements containing vitamins A, C and D every day.

    This advice has been in existence since the early 1990s, when it was endorsed by the then committee on medical aspects of food policy.

    However If your child is having 500ml or more of infant formula a day, they do not need any children's vitamin supplements as infant formula is fortified.

    Vitamins and minerals are essential for children's good health,

    Vitamin A: for growth, vision in dim light and healthy skin
    Vitamin C: helps maintain healthy tissue in the body
    Vitamin D: for strong bones and teeth.

    Growing children may not get enough of these vitamins - especially those not eating a varied diet.

    Breastfed babies from birth to one year of age should be given a daily supplement containing 8.5-10mcg of vitamin D to make sure they get enough. Please speak to your midwife about this if you're not already doing this.
