Reduce the Response to Viral Infections

A recent study conducted by researchers from Singapore and Duke Medical School evaluated the effect of daily doses of oral vitamin D3 1000 IU, magnesium 150mg, and vitamin B12 500mcg on COVID progression to severe outcome in older patients. This combination (DMB) was chosen because the relatively safe nutrients help to reduce the inflammatory response to viral infections. The study compared all consecutive hospitalized COVID-19 patients aged 50 and above in a tertiary academic hospital who received DMB upon admission if they did not require oxygen therapy, to a control group of patients who did not take DMB. As hypothesized, significantly fewer DMB patients required initiation of oxygen therapy or intensive care support throughout their hospitalization (17.6% vs 61.5% of controls who did not take DMB).
