by the current COVID-19 pandemic. (It shows how questionable, ill-advised, and
even harmfull, all these lockdowns are.)
As you might have read, recent research in Spain has shown that up to 80% of
COVID-19 patients were lacking vitamin D. This is not to suggest that
vitamin D will save you from the coronavirus. Rather, those who lacked this crucial vitamin were more likely to
experience more severe symptoms.
While there is no cure for the COVID-19
coronavirus yet, and vaccines are still too

precautions against catching the virus, which includes boosting your immunity
with vitamins C, D and E, as well as zinc and magnesium supplements.

All the more reason to make a habit of catching at least a few minutes of sunlight
every day and loading up your body with this valuable vitamin. The best part, it's all free!
