Now that we understand, the effect vitamin D has on our body Turkish researcher points out how vitamin D has the potential to work against COVID-19 induced damage through reducing levels of renin as well as decreasing the body's inflammatory cytokin storm (the body attacking its own cells instead of just fighting off the virus).
