Thunder CoffeeMilk: A Cure for Corona Virus?
We’re not making that claim. But researchers at Northwestern University have made a link to Vitamin D and cure rates of Covid-19. Led by Northwestern University, the research team conducted a statistical analysis of data from hospitals and clinics across China, France, Germany, Italy, Iran, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, the United Kingdom (UK) and the United States.
The researchers noted that patients from countries with high COVID-19 mortality rates, such as Italy, Spain and the UK, had lower levels of vitamin D compared to patients in countries that were not as severely affected.
Now Thunder Coffeemilk is not a cure for Covid-19. But Thunder Coffeemilk is made with whole milk which is packed full of soluble minerals and vitamins. Milk is an excellent source of Vitamin D. What we are claiming is milk is good for your health. It helps prevent diseases.
There are multiple studies investigating the relationship of Vit D to fighting/preventing Covid-19. In the article from WebMD several observations are made:
- Researchers from the U.K. evaluated the average vitamin D levels and the number of COVID-19 cases, as well as the death rates, across 20 European countries. Countries with low average vitamin D blood levels in the population had higher numbers of COVID-19 cases and deaths, says study leader Petre Cristian Ilie, MD, Ph.D., research and innovation director at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Foundation Trust in King’s Lynn, U.K.
- At Northwestern University, researchers used modeling to estimate that 17% of those deficient in vitamin D would develop a severe COVID-19 infection, but only about 14% of those with healthy vitamin D levels. They estimated the association between vitamin D and severe COVID-19 based on a potential link between vitamin D deficiency and C-reactive proteins, or CRP, a surrogate marker for severe COVID-19
- In a small study, Louisiana and Texas researchers evaluated 20 patients hospitalized with COVID-19, finding that 11 of the patients admitted to the ICU were vitamin D deficient, but only four of those not needing the ICU.
- Indonesian researchers evaluated 780 documented cases of COVID-19 and found that most patients who died had vitamin D levels below normal.
- Irish researchers analyzed European population studies and vitamin D levels, finding countries with high rates of vitamin D deficiency also had higher death rates from COVID-19. Those researchers asked the government to raise the vitamin D recommendations.
So picking a healthy choice like Thunder Coffeemilk simply makes good sense. It solves hunger, tastes great, and good for you… how can you go wrong?
