Take lots of Vitamin D at first signs of COVID

If you suspect COVID-19 symptoms, immediately take vitamin D
   (200,000 IU = 10 days sunbathing on a beach)

Emergency Vitamin D

  • Quickly energizes the body's immune system
  • Vitamin D can fight COVID-19 only if taken soon after infection
  • Works equally well with vaccinated (breakthru) and unvaccinated people
  • Anticipate that more than half of the people immediately taking Vitamin D will not even test positive for COVID
  • Taking Emergency Vitamin D will also extinguish colds, and flu (helps even if the symptoms are not COVID)
  • 50,000 IU capsules are widely available on Amazon (50,000 size is rarely available in local stores)
  • Vitamin D is like a small fire extinguisher, it can easily put out small blazes but not large ones

# of 50,000 IU capsules if healthy
0-50 lbs 2 caps,   50-150 lbs 3 caps,   150-200 lbs 4 caps,   200-250lbs 5 caps,   >250 lbs 6 caps

# of capsules if suspect low vitamin D
     senior, shut-in, dark skin, immunocompromized, diabetic, or poor gut
0-50 lbs 2 caps,  50-150 lbs 4 caps,   150-200 lbs 6 caps,   200-250lbs 7 caps,   >250 lbs 9 caps

1/2 as many capsules if still have symptoms after 3 days

1/4 as many caps if had close contact with an infected person    or if your vitamin D level is >40 ng
    If need 1/2 capsule: Most 50,000 IU caps can be twisted open. Just use 1/2 of the powder/

6) Children in Intensive Care need Vitamin D loading dose of 10000 IU per kg (nearing a consensus) - Oct 2016
    226,000 IU for 50 lbs for children in ICU = maxiumum loading dose.

Virus and COVID

8) Rapid Vitamin D Delivery May Result in Better COVID Outcomes - Dec 9, 2021
9) Large dose of calcifediol or vitamin D up to 15 days before COVID hospitalization reduced death rates (1.5X, 1.3X) – Dec 2021
10) COVID-19 risk reduced by vitamin D supplementation – umbrella review of 7 meta-analysis – Oct 2021

Response to loading dose
