Govt Punts on Vit D | Wise to Choose Organic

From eNewsletter 7/12/2021

DID YOU KNOW that the US Preventive Services Task Force recently concluded there was "not enough evidence of benefit" for Americans to get their vitamin D levels tested? This is a devastating recommendation because it means insurance companies, who choose to cover testing based upon the USPSTF recommendations, won't have to routinely reimburse for vitamin D testing. This will especially affect lower income groups, who are often the most vitamin D deficient. We've posted hundreds of examples of the importance of vitamin D level and supplementing if deficient. Here are just two examples published last week. In the July issue of Nutrients, researchers discovered a 5000 IU daily oral vitamin D3 supplement for just 2 weeks reduces the time to recovery for cough and taste/smell sensory loss among patients with sub-optimal vitamin D status and mild to moderate COVID-19 infection. The authors recommend the use of 5000 IU vitamin D3 as an adjuvant therapy for COVID-19 patients. In the July issue of Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, researchers found that low vitamin D level in pregnant women is an important risk factor for decreased lung function in early childhood, which can lead to higher risk of asthma and respiratory infections.

There are influenza (flu), norovirus (stomach flu), adenovirus (common cold), and four other coronaviruses (common cold), among others. We highly recommend continuing your immune support.
