CRN launches Vitamin D & Me! consumer education website

The CRN Foundation launched Vitamin D & Me!, a consumer education website, which focuses on U.S. consumers ages 55+, and the relationship between vitamin D and COVID-19.

The CRN Foundation (Washington, D.C.) launched Vitamin D & Me!, a consumer education website, which focuses on U.S. consumers ages 55+, and the relationship between vitamin D and COVID-19. The website shares research, expert video interviews, news, and education.

“As adults age, the risk of vitamin D deficiency and insufficiency increases,” CRN vice president, scientific & regulatory affairs, Luke Huber, ND, MBA, said in a press release. “Worse outcomes from COVID-19 and other respiratory infections are seen with increasing age, which is one of the reasons why the site is dedicated to the 55+ community. However, the site will also provide helpful information for all adults.”

The website tracks and summarizes clinical studies on vitamin D and COVID-19 and offers access to media reports on vitamin D and COVID-19, educational content about vitamin D, and a “Meet the Experts” series of video interviews with researchers and clinicians.

“Most people don’t have time to keep up with research, but that’s what we do,” said Steve Mister, president of the CRN Foundation, in a press release. “We have been fascinated over the past year at the amount of research being conducted examining the potential relationship between Vitamin D and COVID-19. The CRN Foundation is delivering unbiased education on the latest science, which helps people make smarter decisions to maintain their health.”

The content for Vitamin D & Me! was developed by a Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) member company Nutrasource, and the website was designed and developed by management and technology consulting firm Aspirant.
