Vitamin D deficiency is a very common condition worldwide and several clinical studies have linked deficiency with chronic diseases, as well as acute conditions. There are many population groups at risk of vitamin D deficiency including those with compromised respiratory systems or illnesses such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, and cystic fibrosis. The severity of these illnesses can be worsened if these populations contract respiratory viruses such as coronaviruses or similar infections. Vitamin D deficiency increases the risk of such infections, and should be avoided whenever possible.
Vitamin D supports the normal functioning of the immune system and promotes a normal inflammatory response. In a case where the body is attacked by a new virus, a well-tuned immune system will be able to more effectively defend the body and fight the contagion. Avoiding vitamin D deficiency is important to ensure a healthy immune system, capable of resisting infections.
