The Role of Vitamin D in Enhancing Immunity in the Face of the COVID-19 Pandemic and its Recommendations: A Literature Review

Adianto Jaya Nagara, Andry Gonius

Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin that has a very important role in regulating the body's calcium balance. It also plays an important role in cell growth, even optimizing the immune system. Ultra violet light obtained from sunlight, especially Ultraviolet B, can help the formation of vitamin D in human skin. Some experts encourage the public to optimize immunity by meeting vitamin D needs by sunbathing regularly. To protect the body from the risk of skin cancer due to UV rays, the American Academy of Dermatology recommends protecting skin from sunlight, such as activities in the shade, wearing long clothes and hats when the UV index is above (moderate to very high danger level. And if necessary use a broad spectrum Sunscreen, with an SPF of 30 or more. To meet daily vitamin D requirements, American Academy of Dermatology recommends the need for additional vitamin D orally.
