Episode 95: Geeky Magic – Winter Supplementation
In this episode, I’m going to share my wintertime supplementation patterns and suggestions. I’ll also dive into ways to boost your body’s immune system function during a time of the year where we typically eat more, move less, and get less sun.
Supplementation should cycle with the seasons, since our environment and behaviors cycle as well! You’ll learn the importance of getting more sleep in the winter, which supplements to take this time of year to best support your body, and how to enjoy the season of deep restoration and repair.
For those of you who didn’t catch last week's Geeky Magic, it was about fasting and chronic stress. Listen here. Geeky Magic is a new type of episode I’m adding to the line up to take a step away from the interviews. I’m going to bring you personal insights, FAQ’s, and trending topics in a more condensed, quick, and actionable way.

Dr. Stephanies Episode Notes & Mentioned Studies:
Vitamin D and Immunity
- A study that looked at 216 people with COVID-19 found that 80 percent didn’t have adequate levels of vitamin D in their blood.
- The study also found that people who had both COVID-19 and lower vitamin D levels also had a higher number of inflammatory markers such as ferritin and D-dimer, which have been linked to poor COVID-19 outcomes.
- A different study found that COVID-19 patients who had adequate vitamin D levels had a 51.5 percent lower risk of dying from the disease and a significant reduced risk for complications.
