New FAQs published on vitamin D and Coronavirus

Public Health Wales has published a series of FAQs on vitamin D in relation to Coronavirus. The FAQs are based on recent guidance from the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE), which reviewed evidence from studies investigating vitamin D and Coronavirus from across the world.

The guidance from NICE concludes that there is not enough evidence to recommend vitamin D with the sole purpose of preventing or treating Coronavirus.

The guidance also emphasises current government advice that vitamin D supplements should be taken through the autumn and winter months in order to promote healthy muscles and bones.
