Supplements High in Vitamins C and D May Be Key in Fighting Off Coronavirus
A new study has found that supplements containing vitamin C andD are a safe, effective, and affordable way to held fend off COVID-19.
Researchers even say that dosage amounts exceeding federal guidelines, in somecases, are beneficial.A professor of biochemistry and biophysics at Oregon State University named a number of vitamins, minerals, and fatty acidsthat can give your immune system a boost. Besides Vitamin C and D, he mentioned zinc, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), and omega-3 fatty acids.
So, what do researchers recommend:
Besides a daily multivitamin, they also suggest 200 milligrams or more of vitamin C each day (federal guidelines only recommended 75 milligrams for menand 50 milligrams for women), and 2,000 international units of vitamin D (more than the 400-800 usually prescribed).
