Covid 19 Resources

COVID 19 Helpful Links and Resources

The novel coronavirus has disrupted not just our jobs but our entire lives. While the state of Florida has done very well when compared to other states, more can always be done to prevent death and illness.

Based on reports globally, I am working with organizations to promote vitamin D testing and supplementation to vulnerable populations. For example, the elderly typically have the lowest vitamin D levels and are more vulnerable to COVID-19.

Global studies have shown those with vitamin D levels above 30ng/ml fair far better when infected with COVID-19. Three quarters of our population are vitamin D deficient, and I am urging everyone to be aware of this severe deficiency and to improve their vitamin D levels.

For more information, please visit grassrootshealth.net to learn how you can potentially reduce your risk from COVID-19 by increasing your vitamin D level
