Can Supplements Lower Your Risk of Coronavirus Infection?

Image
There is a lot of news and information being churned out when it comes to the latest Coronavirus or COVID-19 pandemic.

When it comes to supplements, there is also a lot of confusion due to the overwhelming mixing of credible scientific information and marketing hypes available on the internet. Information is all over the place and we have tried to compile the major ones into one place.

There are several supplements that might help and we have arranged them in order of importance based on available scientific evidence.



1. Vitamin C

Most people turn to vitamin C after they've caught a cold. Because your body doesn't produce or store it, you need daily vitamin C for continued health. Almost all citrus fruits are high in vitamin C.

Vitamin C appears to be able to both prevent and treat respiratory and systemic infections by enhancing various immune cell functions. Prophylactic prevention of infection requires dietary vitamin C intakes that provide at least adequate, if not saturati…

If you are looking to find a skin specialist in PJ, this post was written with you in mind.
Skin Specialists or dermatologists are medically qualified doctors who provide a range of skin care services from treating simple skin conditions to diagnosis and management of more complicated skin cases. Just so that we are on the same page, a skin specialist is a dermatologist if he holds a professional medical degree with further post-graduate training in skin diseases. We wouldn't call someone working at a spa a skin specialist though, but if you have a skin related problem and has not been well managed by a general practitioner, you need to be referred to a skin specialist or a dermatologist.This post is about finding the right dermatologist for your skin problem in Petaling Jaya (PJ), Selangor.



If you have a skin related problem, you're likely to start by seeing your family or primary care doctor. But in some cases, you may be referred to a skin specialist (dermatologist). It'…

Can Stem Cell Therapy Help against COVID-19?

Image
The number of confirmed cases of the 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) reported to WHO continues to rise worldwide. Although WHO has launched a global megatrial to test 4 most promising treatments, there is currently no specific proven anti-viral treatment exists. Although there are some published studies for various promising treatments from antivirals, anti-malarial to anti-oxidants, the studies are small and yet to be confirmed. The mainstay of clinical management is largely symptomatic treatment, with organ support in intensive care for seriously ill patients.

WHO and other global public health bodies have mainly focused on preventing transmission, infection control measures, and screening of travellers. The development of vaccines has received immediate funding; however, as with SARS-CoV and MERSCoV, support for developing treatments for 2019-nCoV that reduce mortality has not been forthcoming. All three coronaviruses induce excessive non-effective host immune responses that are…

Can Quercetin, Vitamin C, Vitamin D and Zinc help Against COVID -19?

Image
As the outbreak of novel coronavirus, COVID-19 continues to spread around the world, researchers are feverishly searching for effective remedies. As of March 31, 2020, there were 143 clinical trials of COVID-19 treatments or vaccines that are either ongoing or recruiting patients. New ones are being added every day. The drugs or treatments being tested range from repurposed flu treatments and stem cell therapy to malaria treatments (chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine) that were first developed decades ago.

However, do take note that most of these therapies under evaluation are mainly hospital-based treatments. These are not something that you take normally as a preventive strategy. For example, QT prolongation (causing irregular heart beats), hypoglycaemia, eye toxicity are some of the risks to be mindful of from drugs like hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin.

Do not self-medicate with prescription drugs. A couple in Arizona mistakenly thought that a popular fish tank additive that ha…

Best Products to Get Rid of Dark Circles Under Eyes 2020

Introduction - Why another guide on dark circles under eyes? I used to be very impressed with the online world. Finally a level playing field where everyone can have access to information and knowledge globally. However, as I dive into the search engine results; it is clear that there are a lot of myths and misinformation being spread.


What do I mean by misinformation?

Misinterpreted science, cherry-picked studies, conspiracies, and alluring anecdotes are the tools that many pseudoscience peddlers use to sell their stories.

You have most likely read and tried those dark circles home remedies that don't work. Despite that, there are tons of all these low-quality self-help e-books (some are even promoted by popular sites, celebrities and digital product marketplace) out there on dark circles under eyes treatments using potatoes, orange juice, cucumbers, tomatoes and the list goes on and on.

I cringe when I read some of the mis-information out there on the internet. It's difficult …
