    Trinity College Dublin
    May 12 2020

    Researchers from Trinity College Dublin are calling on the government in Ireland to change recommendations for vitamin D supplements.

    A daily dose of 400 IUs is laughable. I shudder to think what the current recommendation is in Ireland. I know the USDA recommendation is not much higher than 400, but research has shown incontrovertibly that a maintenance dose of vitamin D is 8000 IUs.
    I am convinced that the awareness of our need for vitamin D is not recent. 75 years ago, when I was a child of five, my father gave me a spoonful of cod liver oil every morning. I have no idea where he learned the importance of cod liver oil; I don't even know whether my father had a college education. I don't know whether this was a well-known practice three generations ago. But evidently I got a pretty good start in life!

    Vitamin D3 has proven beneficial in treating respiratory illnesses, like asthma, especially in young people. Therefore, it's not too far a leap to believe that vit. D plays a role in lessening severity of COVID-19. Read more about D3 and asthma here:
