I have been taking 10,000 IU of Vitamin D3 daily for some time now. A friend of mine was in an auto accident and banged up pretty bad. Long after she recovered, she had lingering pain. Her doctor put her on high dose Vitamin d and that helped a lot. So I decided to try it to see if it would help some of my joint pain. Also I don't get outside much during the day to get sun shine. Additionally - I was trying to encourage my wife to also take it while she was undergoing Chemo. I wasn't convinced she was getting enough.
An additional benefit may also be that people with good Vitamin D levels if they get Covid-19 usually don't have to be admitted to the hospital. Though no one knows for sure - its possible it might be protective as well. Might be working for me, I have not turned into a clean freak at home. I typically only wear a mask in indoor public situations. I'm not particularly good about washing my hands. No Covid for me so far. I'd say go for the Vitamin D!
