Vitamin C, Vitamin D and Zinc: Do They Help Prevent or Treat COVID-19?

Image
The appeal of safe, natural treatments is undeniable. It’s true for age-old conditions such as the common cold, and for new diseases, especially if they have no known cure. So it makes sense that there would be a lot of interest in supplements for COVID-19, whether as prevention or treatment. Indeed, zinc, melatonin, vitamin C, vitamin D, and other supplements have been commonly prescribed from the earliest days of the pandemic. But do they work? McCullough et al. 2020 Why supplements might help prevent or treat COVID-19 While science can show whether a drug is effective, we may not always know why. When antibiotics were first discovered in the 1920s, there was limited understanding of the biology involved. But lacking an explanation for their benefit did not discourage doctors from recommending these highly effective treatments. If it’s less clear whether a drug works, biologic plausibility — that is, a logical and well-understood reason why the drug  should  work — increases the expe

Hydroxychloroquine and Cytokine Storm: Zelenko Protocol

Image
Dr. Leonard Calabrese from the Cleveland Clinic discussed an inflammation syndrome in patients with advancing COVID-19. Also referred to as a cytokine storm, the syndrome primarily targets the lungs, leading to acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), which shares some clinical and pathologic symptoms with idiopathic ARDS. With multiple potential anti-viral mechanisms of action and immunomodulatory effects through attenuation of cytokine production, hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) is potential treatment for COVID-19.  The Zelenko protocol is a multi-drug treatment consisting of hydroxychloroquine, zinc and azithromycin (antibiotic) for COVID-19. A  retrospective study  analyzing Dr Zelenko's patient data was accepted for publication after a rigorous peer review process. The study finds that early intervention and treatment of high-risk patients with COVID-19 resulted in significantly fewer hospitalizations and deaths. Dr Zelenko has since updated his protocols to incorporate new evid

Best Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids 2021

Vitamin C and bioflavonoids are important antioxidants that help keep your body healthy. Foods rich in vitamin C, like citrus fruits and many vegetables, are also excellent sources of bioflavonoids. Research suggests vitamin C and bioflavonoids have a complementary effect, making them both more effective when ingested together rather than separately. Benefits previously believed to be caused by Vitamin C may actually be caused by a combined action between specific bioflavonoids and Vitamin C. Thus, it can be said that Bioflavonoids and Vitamin C are synergistic in the body. To help you make the best choice among the hundreds of products available, we have done our research and shortlisted the best for you. The list is based on recommendations by third party organisations and popularity on search results. Here are the best vitamin C with bioflavonoid supplements that you can buy today. 1.

Ivermectin and Cytokine Storm - FLCCC Protocol for COVID-19

Image
It appears one of the differences between those who have a mild illness and severe illness is related to the body's ability to reduce the hyperimmune response that leads to a cytokine storm and the hyper-coagulability (tendency for blood clots) that often accompanies it. The cytokine storm may be one possible way to explain the severe reaction of those in hospitals. This may also explain why younger people and those with a healthy immune system and without pre-existing health conditions tend to have an easier time. Their bodies may release lower levels of cytokines creating just enough inflammation for healing.          McCullough et al. Reviews in Cardiovascular Medicine, 2020 In a review, published on 16 Oct 2020 ( Open Heart 2020 ); the authors looked at in vitro studies that have shown the effectiveness of ivermectin in blocking cytokine production. This prompted the authors to search the research literature on ivermectin for anti-inflammatory actions. The authors argued th

Hydrogen Therapy: Research Review and Future Prospects (2021)

Image
There are  over 1500 published papers  (PubMed) on the benefits of molecular hydrogen in health and wellness. As of May 2021, there are 125 on-going clinical studies related to "molecular hydrogen" on  clinicaltrials.gov . Hydrogen medicine is a new and dynamic field with many on-going research. This list is a work-in-progress list as new evidence might be added from time to time. Surprisingly, scientific studies revealed that a simple molecule like hydrogen has  antioxidant  benefit and is able to protect cells against free radicals. Let's check out the science and evidence behind this. Since we published this article few months ago, there has been many new studies and evidence related to hydrogen water in healthcare. This is an updated article to review hydrogen water and the scientific evidence behind it to help you make an informed decision. What Is Hydrogen Water? Hydrogen (H2) is the most abundant molecule in the Universe. It’s an odorless, colorless, and tasteless
