There is so much information on the internet about vitamins and supplements that you should or should not be taking in connection with COVID 19, that not only is the information overwhelming, it also can be wrong. Make sure your information is from a reliable source.
This virus is new and we are still learning so much about how it acts in our bodies but as information is discovered we are able to dial in our treatment approaches. There are several different ” phases” that the virus has on our immune system and those different phases may need different support. So supplements that may be helpful in a prevention or early infection stage infection may be counter indicated in a later stage of the disease such as inflammation and recovery.
There are a few supplements that, at this point, seem to be universally safe in any phase of the illness but exact dosages should be tested and discussed with your doctor to see if they are still safe for you. They include Vitamins D and C, Zinc, Melatonin, Quercetin, and Fish oil.
Overall supporting our mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical selves by proper nutrition, sleep and exercise habits, and lowered stress levels this will help prevent contracting any illness because as always, prevention is the best cure!
