WHAT'S ALL THIS ABOUT VITAMIN D Vitamin D and COVID-19 https://borsche.de/res/Vitamin_D_Essentials_EN.pdf A Supercomputer Analyzed COVID-19, and an Interesting New Hypothesis Has Emerged https://science.slashdot.org/story/20/09/02/0538229/a-supercomputer-analyzed-covid-19-and-an-interesting-new-hypothesis-has-emerged Interestingly, the researchers suggest vitamin D as a potentially useful Covid-19 drug. "The vitamin is involved in the RAS system and could prove helpful by reducing levels of another compound, known as REN," the report says. "Again, this could stop potentially deadly bradykinin storms from forming." Other compounds could treat symptoms associated with bradykinin storms, such as Hymecromone and timbetasin. sam.wormley@gmail.com
