Jeg har allerede skrevet et par tekster om D vitamin på mit website, f.eks. teksten Vitaminer og mineraler kan afskaffe COVID-19 epidemien, hvoraf det fremgår at hvis man har over 75 nmol D vitamin pr. liter blod er det næsten umuligt at blive alvorligt syg af ’COVID-19’. Dette blev understøttet af et par videnskabelige artikler. Jeg sendte også teksten til alle Folketingets medlemmer, men det interesserede dem ikke…
Nu har en ven så fundet 49 videnskabelige artikler som bekræfter D vitamins positive effekt mod bl.a. covid-19 og andre infektioner og meget andet.
Til sidst i nedenstående liste er der et kort email fra læge
Claus Hancke, som er rasende over at DR (igen) manipulerer for at
underspille hvor vigtige vitaminer er for vores helbred…
|Tilføjelse i version 1.10, den 3.10.2020:|
134 videnskabelige artikler om D vitamin og COVID-19 osv.!
Jeg er ret overvældet. Dr. Mercola og 4 andre læger har lavet 2 versioner af en længere rapport om hvor vigtigt D vitamin er i forhold til COVID-19 mv.!
Den lange version har en liste med 185 kilder(!) hvoraf de 134 handler om D vitamin! Det er lidt vildt! Her er starten af rapporten (man kan ikke kopiere tekst fra den, kun i kildelisten):

Other Nutrients That May Increase the Effectiveness of Vitamin D Supplementation
Since over half the population does not get enough magnesium, and far more are likely deficient, magnesium supplementation is recommended when taking vitamin D supplements.
This is because magnesium helps to activate vitamin D, as the enzymes that metabolize vitamin D in the liver and kidneys require magnesium. In fact, about half of those taking vitamin D supplements are unable to normalize their vitamin D levels until they take magnesium.
GrassrootsHealth found that those who do not take supplemental magnesium need, on average, 146% more vitamin D to achieve a blood level of 40 ng/ml (100 nmol/L), compared to those who take at least 400 mg of magnesium per day.
The dose of magnesium should be around 500 mg/day, but more if you don’t have the loose stools that can occur with higher-dose magnesium supplementation. If you have kidney damage, discuss the dose with your physician.
Take at least 500 mg of magnesium with your vitamin D
One can also take 150 to 200 mcg of vitamin K2 per day, as it works synergistically with vitamin D. This will help drive the calcium that vitamin D helps increase in your blood, and drive it into your bones to build healthier bones. The only concern is that if you are on Coumadin, you have to discuss vitamin K2 with your physician as it will interfere with Coumadin.

This study is the first to document a statistically significant
correlation between a country's latitude and its COVID-19 mortality
and is consistent with other research regarding latitude, Vitamin D
deficiency, and COVID-19 fatalities.
Based on literature review, we highlight the findings regarding the
protective role of vitamin D for infectious diseases of the respiratory system.
Accumulating evidence suggests that 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 exerts protective
effects during infections by upregulating the expression of
cathelicidin and β-defensin 2 in phagocytes and epithelial cells. Vitamin D may be acting as a
panaceal antibiotic agent and thus may be useful as an adjuvant
therapy in diverse infections.
High-dose vitamin D (1200 IU) is suitable for the prevention of seasonal
influenza as evidenced by rapid relief from symptoms, rapid
decrease in viral loads and disease recovery. In addition,
high-dose vitamin D is probably safe for infants.
Epidemiologic evidence links vitamin D deficiency to autoimmune disease, cancer,
cardiovascular disease, depression, dementia, infectious diseases,
musculoskeletal decline, and more.
vitamin D deficiency has been linked to increased risk for preeclampsia,
requiring a cesarean section for birthing, multiple sclerosis,
rheumatoid arthritis, types I and II diabetes, heart disease,
dementia, deadly cancers, and infectious diseases.
Vitamin D supplementation was safe and it protected against acute respiratory
tract infection overall. Patients who were very vitamin D deficient
and those not receiving bolus doses experienced the most benefit.
Insufficiency and deficiency of 25-hydroxyvitamin D and reduced exposure to sunlight were significantly associated with an increased risk of Parkinson's disease.
This study's findings showed that sunlight exposure was associated with
recovery from Covid-19.
The evidence for an association between vitamin D and risk of influenza
infection exists, albeit mainly in in vitro and animal studies
describing the role of 1,25(OH)2D
in innate and adaptive immunity. Observational human studies of
25(OH)D deficiency and randomized controlled trials supplementing
various forms of vitamin D have yielded mixed but promising results.
Clinically, there is evidence of the association of vitamin D insufficiency and
respiratory tract infections. There is also some evidence of the
prevention of infections by vitamin D supplementation. Randomised
controlled trials are warranted to explore this preventive effect.
Vitamin D is essential for good health, especially bone and muscle health.
Many people have low blood levels of vitamin D, especially in winter
or if confined indoors, because summer sunshine is the main source of
vitamin D for most people
Evidence supporting the role of vitamin D in reducing risk of COVID-19
includes that the outbreak occurred in winter, a time when
25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) concentrations are lowest; that the
number of cases in the Southern Hemisphere near the end of summer are
low; that vitamin D deficiency has been found to contribute to acute
respiratory distress syndrome; and that case-fatality rates increase
with age and with chronic disease comorbidity, both of which are
associated with lower 25(OH)D concentration.
In conclusion, we found significant crude relationships between vitamin
D levels and the number COVID-19 cases and especially the mortality
caused by this infection. The most vulnerable group of population for
COVID-19, the aging population, is also the one that has the most
deficit Vitamin D levels.
Study confirms vitamin D protects against colds and flu”
This study suggests that vitamin D3 supplementation
during the winter may reduce the incidence of influenza A, especially
in specific subgroups of schoolchildren
According to Grant and Giovanucci , vitamin D supplements or fortified foods should be evaluated further as a possibly useful component of a programme to reduce influenza mortality rates, especially in elderly persons.
The studies clearly show that vitamin D is, undoubtedly, part of the
complex factors which affect the immune response.
To reduce the risk of infection, it is recommended that people at risk
of influenza and/or COVID-19 consider taking 10,000 IU/d of vitamin
D3 for a few weeks to rapidly raise 25(OH)D concentrations, followed by 5000
IU/d. The goal should be to raise 25(OH)D concentrations above 40–60
ng/mL (100–150 nmol/L). For treatment of people who become infected
with COVID-19, higher vitamin D3 doses
might be useful.
In the randomized trials and meta-analysis, vitamin D supplementation
has been shown to have protective effects against respiratory tract
infections; therefore, people who are at higher risk of vitamin D
deficiency during this global pandemic should consider taking vitamin
D supplements to maintain the circulating 25(OH)D in the optimal
levels (75–125 nmol/L).
Influenza infection remains a major public health concern across the world. The
overall body of evidence suggests that older adults are more prone to
be infected by influenza virus. While influenza prevention strategies
are mainly based on immunization, current influenza vaccines do not
offer optimal protection in this population due, in part, to waning
immunity. Even if VitD has profound effects on immunity and clinical
and epidemiological data suggest that VitD insufficiency increases
susceptibility to influenza infection, there is not yet sufficient
information to clarify the true relationship between VitD status and
host resistance or influenza vaccine immunogenicity.
In this sample of the general Danish population, not including at-risk
groups but encompassing children and adults between 2 and 69 years
old, we found substantial seasonal variation in the 25(OH)D
concentrations. Most participants were vitamin D-sufficient in
autumn, but many experienced vitamin D insufficiency during the
spring, emphasizing the need for individual, bi-seasonal measurements
In conclusion, we found significant crude relationships between vitamin D levels and the number COVID-19 cases and especially the mortality caused by this infection. The most vulnerable group of population for COVID-19, the aging population, is also the one that has the most deficit Vitamin D levels.
Vitamin D has already been shown to protect against acute respiratory
infections and it was shown to be safe. It should be advisable to
perform dedicated studies about vitamin D levels in COVID-19 patients
with different degrees of disease
Aggregated evidence from 11 randomized controlled trials indicates that
supplementation with vitamin D could be an effective means of
preventing respiratory tract
Vitamin D with calcium reduces mortality in the elderly, whereas available
data do not support an effect of vitamin D alone.
In summary, there is possible evidence from RCTs for protective vitamin
D effects on TB and likely evidence for protective effects on acute
airway infection. Since vitamin D deficiency is prevalent in Europe,
especially in institutionalised individuals and non-European
immigrants, daily oral vitamin D intake, e.g. 1000 international
units, is an inexpensive measure to ensure adequate vitamin D status
in individuals at risk.
The high prevalence of vitamin D insufficiency is a particularly important public health issue because hypovitaminosis D is an independent risk factor for total mortality in the general population.
Emerging research supports the possible role of vitamin D against
cancer, heart disease, fractures and falls, autoimmune diseases,
influenza, type-2 diabetes, and depression. Many health care
providers have increased their recommendations for vitamin D
supplementation to at least 1000 IU.
A meta-analysis published in 2007 showed that vitamin D
supplementation was associated with significantly reduced
vitamin D, vitamin C, zinc, and Echinacea have
pivotal roles of three main immunoreactive clusters (physical
barriers, innate and adaptive immunity) in terms of prevention and
treatment (shortening the duration and/or lessening the severity of
symptoms) of common colds. The present narrative review demonstrated
that current evidence of efficacy for zinc, vitamins D and C,
and Echinacea is
quite strong that CC patients may be encouraged to try them for
preventing/treating their colds.
Dearth of treatment for COVID-19 leaves us with no choice but to take
precautionary and prophylactic measures to stand a better chance to
fight this pandemic. Hence, maintaining adequate Vit D levels is
vital to prevent getting infected or to ward off the infection
without mortality, in case it occurs. Clinical trials should be
conducted in regard to COVID-19 for assessing the effect of Vit D
supplementation and determining the appropriate dose. We conclude
that correlation exists between Vit D levels and COVID-19
susceptibility and Vit D could prove to be an essential element in
our fight against COVID-19.
Evidence is presented suggesting a direct correlation between sunlight
exposure and reduced mortality.
This study is the first to document a statistically significant correlation between a country's latitude and its COVID-19 mortality and is consistent with other research regarding latitude, Vitamin D deficiency, and COVID-19 fatalities. Limitations of this study are noted.
While oral sources of vitamin D could be used instead of UVB or when UVB
irradiance is not available, public health policies do not yet
recommend the 3,000–4,000 IU/day required to raise serum
25-hydroxyvitamin D levels to the levels required for optimal health,
which would be required before vitamin D fortification levels in food
can be raised. Until then, moderate solar UVB irradiance remains an
import source, and the health benefits greatly outweigh the
The data support the hypothesis that a high vitamin D level, as that
found in the summer, acts in a protective manner with respect to
influenza as well as pneumonia.
School children in Japan who received 1200 IUs of vitamin D3 daily
for 4 mo during the winter reduced their risk of developing influenza
infection by 42%.
There is potentially a great upside to increasing the vitamin D status of
children and adults worldwide for improving musculoskeletal health
and reducing the risk of chronic illnesses, including some cancers,
autoimmune diseases, infectious diseases, type 2 diabetes mellitus,
neurocognitive disorders, and mortality.
Vitamin D also reduces the production of proinflammatory cytokines, which
could also explain some of the benefit of vitamin D since H1N1
infection gives rise to a cytokine storm. The potential role of
vitamin D status in reducing secondary bacterial infections and loss
of life in pandemic influence requires further
There is ample evidence that various non-communicable diseases
(hypertension, diabetes, CVD, metabolic syndrome) are associated with
low vitamin D plasma levels. These comorbidities, together with the
often concomitant vitamin D deficiency, increase the risk of severe
COVID-19 events. Much more attention should be paid to the importance
of vitamin D status for the development and course of the disease.
Particularly in the methods used to control the pandemic (lockdown),
the skin's natural vitamin D synthesis is reduced when people have
few opportunities to be exposed to the sun.
Ultraviolet radiation (either from artificial sources or from sunlight) reduces
the incidence of viral respiratory infections, as does cod liver oil
(which contains vitamin D).
Most studies agree in that decreased vitamin D concentrations are
prevalent among most infants and children with RTIs. Also, normal to
high-serum 25(OH)D appears to have some beneficial influence on the
incidence and severity of some, but not all, types of these infections.
A new meta-analysis confirmed that low 25(OH)D levels were associated
with a significant increased risk for all-cause mortality.
Obese children and adults and children and adults on medications such as
anticonvulsants, glucocorticoids or AIDS medications need at least
two to three times more vitamin D for their age group to satisfy
their body’s vitamin D requirement.
The results of these studies are consistent with the recommendation to improve the general vitamin D status in children and adults by means of a healthy approach to sunlight exposure, consumption of foods containing vitamin D and supplementation with vitamin D preparations.
The epidemiological features of septicemia, including seasonality, racial
disparity, increased rate with age, and several clinically
significant comorbidities, are similar to the epidemiology of vitamin
D deficiency. The hypothesis that higher levels of 25(OH)D reduces
the incidence and improve the prognosis of septicemia should be easy
As a conclusion, in this period when we fought against the COVID-19
pandemic, which affected many countries around the world and caused
thousands of people to die, no clear agent has been found in its
treatment. In fact, an easily accessible agent such as vitamin D may
be an important weapon in our hands. However, there is no clear
evidence for high-dose or dose of vitamin D supplementation in
patients with SARS-CoV-2 infection.
Although there is a need for more research related to this subject, we think that supplementing vitamin D as a part of standard nutrition may be somewhat effective in providing clinical benefit.
Although the health benefits of vitamin D sufficiency are clear, awareness of
the dangers of vitamin D deficiency is lacking. People with vitamin D
deficiency have no obvious symptoms until it is so severe that they
develop osteomalacia; this is often misdiagnosed as fibromyalgia, so
many doctors may not be aware of the problem. Public health campaigns
that emphasise the insidious consequences of vitamin D deficiency on
health are therefore needed. Regulatory health agencies also need to
provide recommendations for sensible sun exposure, especially for
ethnic minorities. They should also implement aggressive
fortification of foods—supplementation should be increased from 100
IU per serving to at least 200 IU. The US, Canada, Sweden, and
Finland already fortify milk with vitamin D but this policy should be
extended to Europe. More foods, such as pasta, other dairy products,
and orange juice should be fortified.
There are now several thousand publications that support the non-skeletal
health benefits of vitamin D that should not be ignored either
because they are association studies or small randomized controlled
trials. There is no evidence that there is a downside to increasing
vitamin D intake in children and adults with the exception of those
with chronic granuloma forming disorder or lymphoma.5,7 It
will take several more years to hear from several ongoing large RCTs
evaluating non-skeletal benefits of vitamin D. If you believed and
followed the IOM recommendation of 200 IU/d in 1997 then for the past
decade you were likely vitamin D deficient. 600 IU/d that the IOM now
recommends will raise and maintain blood concentrations of 25(OH)D >
20 ng/ml but < 30 ng/ml. Based on the overwhelming cumulative
reports this is not satisfactory to obtain all of the health benefits
of vitamin D. The evidence-based recommendations by the Endocrine
Society’s Clinical Practice Guidelines are more realistic
(400–1,000 IU for children, 1,500–2,000 IU for adults to maintain
25(OH)D concentrations of 40–60 ng/ml for preventing and treating
The current policy of sun avoidance is creating probable harm for the
Vitamin D deficiency is a common, serious medical condition that
significantly affects the health and well-being of older
Though some prospective studies show positive results regarding vitamin D on
infectious disease, several robust studies are negative. Factors such
as high variability between studies, the difference in individual
responsiveness to vitamin D, and study designs that do not primarily
investigate infectious outcomes may mask the effects of vitamin D on
The second question was why we did not point out that African Americans
(AAs) have a much higher risk of COVID-19 infection and death than white Americans. At the
time we submitted our manuscript, the data comparing AA COVID-19 infection and mortality rates were not
available. In addition, there are a number of other reasons why AAs have higher
COVID-19 rates, including that they have higher chronic disease rates
than white Americans . People with chronic diseases generally have low 25(OH)D concentrations (see
Table 2 in ). Now, however, it is well-known that AAs have much higher COVID-19
infection and mortality rates . Based on the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey
(NHANES) 2001–2010, the prevalence of serum 25(OH)D concentrations <20 ng/mL was 72% for
non-Hispanic blacks (NHBs), 43% for Hispanics, and 19% for
non-Hispanic whites, with the prevalence of <10 ng/mL being 17% in
NHBs . Of all the risk factors AAs have for becoming infected
with COVID-19, raising serum 25(OH)D
concentrations is the easiest one to counter”.
Vitamin D Supplementation in Influenza and COVID-19 Infections
Inadequate amounts of vitamin D in older people reduces well being, aggravates
the ageing process, in particular reducing mobility and adds to the
severity of osteoporosis and the risks of falls and fragility
fractures with all of their severe consequences. It also reduces
longevity, increasing the risk of cardiovascular deaths in
particular, but may also increase the risks of type 2 diabetes and
certain common cancers, notably colo-rectal cancer.
Since adequate exposure to summer sunshine becomes increasingly difficult for everyone with modern lifestyles, and more so with age, maintaining good intakes of vitamin D throughout life and increasing the amount taken in those aged 60–70 years or more would ensure that the problems that hypovitaminosis D aggravates with ageing are minimized.

Emne: DR manipulerer groft
Hvis I vil hidses op i det røde felt, så se (eller optag) “Vitaminpiller - myte eller mirakelkur?” Den genudsendes på DR2 kl: 01.00 i nat.
Jeg så den forleden.
Det er en himmelråbende manipulerende udsendelse fra BBC proppet med fordrejninger og faktuelle fejl og derefter oversukret med en klovnet fremstilling. (Jaja. Gluud er også med)
DR gør sig her skyldig i ensidig og stærkt manipulerende journalistik, -uden modsvar.
Det var aldrig sket, hvis det var en positiv udsendelse om vitaminer o.lign. -Så ville der altid være en opponent, som fik det sidste ord.
