Post-poliomyelitis syndrome as a possible viral disease.

If there is any merit to this theory it makes sense to use as many potentially anti-viral agents as possible.
Keeping 25(OH)D vitamin D3 levels at or above the levels found in indigenous humans living as human DNA evolved makes sense.
Vitamin D and the anti-viral state

DAILY supplementation would ensure free unbound Cholecalciferol was available every day. Keeping levels above 125nmol/l or 50ng/ml ensures daily needs are fully met and the surplus vitamin D3 is present to fight pathogens if required.
Vitamiin D3 has other beneficial actions so even if this PPS viral theory is not proven the money spent of 5000iu D3 softgels is not wasted.

A Review on Antibacterial, Antiviral, and Antifungal Activity of Curcumin
Curcumin also has many benefits that overlap with those of vitamin D3, Because curcumin acts as vitamin D receptor ligand it shouldn't be regarded as a substitute for vitamin D3, When it comes to preserving cognitive function both curcumin and vitamin D3 help by removing amyloid from the brain but they do this by different routes so both are better than either/or.
