6X less risk of COVID-19 ICU if Vitamin D and Vit B12 and Mg – Jan 2021

Magnesium and Vitamin D Deficiency as a Potential Cause of Immune Dysfunction, Cytokine Storm and Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation in COVID-19 Patients

Patients with COVID-19 who received the magnesium and vitamin D and B12 had an 87% lower risk for requiring oxygen therapy and an 85% lower risk for needing intensive care support.

Vitamin B12 includes the following

Vitamin B12 is not a cofactor of Vitamin D, but it is often needed with Vitamin D
Started this page March 2018
Had been aware of B12 for years
Surfing the web finds

  • B12 deficiency increases with age
  • B12 appears to have no toxic upper limit
  • Some people get frequent B12 injections or I.V, to restore levels
    • Injection may not be needed
  • Only a small portion of B12 taken orally gets into the bloodstream
    • Sublingual B12 may not have that problem
  • B12 is stored in the liver – half life of > 2 years - Dr. Greger says take it weekly or daily
  • B12 can be supplemented via pills, sublingual, transdermal patch, injection, emulsion, and spray
    • As with Vitamin D, a massive (loading) dose can restore levels quickly

Magnesium and vitamin D each have the possibility of affecting the immune system and consequently the cytokine storm and coagulation cascade in COVID-19 infections. Vitamin D is important for reducing the risk of upper respiratory tract infections and plays a role in pulmonary epithelial health. While the importance of vitamin D for a healthy immune system has been known for decades, the benefits of magnesium has only recently been elucidated. Indeed, magnesium is important for activating vitamin D and has a protective role against oxidative stress. Magnesium deficiency increases endothelial cell susceptibility to oxidative stress, promotes endothelial dysfunction, reduces fibrinolysis and increases coagulation. Furthermore, magnesium deficient animals and humans have depressed immune responses, which, when supplemented with magnesium, a partial or near full reversal of the immunodeficiency occurs. Moreover, intracellular free magnesium levels in natural killer cells and CD8 killer T cells regulates their cytotoxicity. Considering that magnesium and vitamin D are important for immune function and cellular resilience, a deficiency in either may contribute to cytokine storm in the novel coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) infection.
