Friday, May 15th, 2020

Joe Rogan welcomed Dr. Rhonda Patrick, a Ph.D in biomedical science and expert on nutritional health, on his hugely popular podcast Thursday to discuss ways to fortify the immune system against COVID-19. And, much of the conversation focused on the sunshine vitamin!

Rogan was wowed by the evidence Patrick offered, suggesting that vitamin D status has a profound impact on COVID-19 outcomes. They also discussed the subject more broadly, noting a number of potential health benefits and mechanisms that are influenced by vitamin D.

“I’m amazed at the number of people who are [vitamin D] deficient. It’s so stunning, and when you point out the number of people who are deficient who end up having severe COVID-19 problems, it’s crazy. It’s like the missing link. It’s like it’s right there,” Rogan told her in response.

The Joe Rogan Experience is one of the most popular podcasts in the world, garnering 220 million views per month.
