Well 8 months into social distancing, quarantine, wearing mask, and bullet proof glass at the grocery store there seems to be no end in sight. Well im not a doctor but I am a reader and researcher during this time there are a few more things you can do besides wearing a mask and staying 6 feet away or washing your delivered groceries if you are doing that kind of thing.
First let me address what im not saying. I am not saying if you do these things you can remove your mask and be a close talker. Thats a violation of the rules and personal space. I am also not say doing these things will make you immune to Covid. I am not say that doing these things will stop you from spreading Covid if you contract it.
What I am saying is taking these supplements will strengthen your immune system. I am saying that these supplements will help lessen the severity of your symptoms. I am saying it will lessen your chances of ending up in the hospital or dying.
Vitamin D- Vitamin D is needed for a healthy functioning immune system. Most Americans are actually Vitamin D deficient, which means most Americans immune systems aren't functioning as well as it could. People with low Vitamin D are more at risk to contract the Flu and Upper respiratory infections.
Vitamin C- I don't think there is anything I can say that hasn't already been said about Vitamin C. Just going to highlight that it super charges your immune system and it has been shown to reduce severity and duration of upper respiratory infections.
Zinc- Zinc is another supplement that your body needs for a healthy immune system. If you are zinc deficient which is more common in older adults yet again your immune system is weakened. Also studies show that it can help with respiratory tract infections even when you are already sick.
Yes wear your mask. Yes give people personal space which is always a good thing to do. Wash your hands also good thing to do. Next time you are online shopping or in a store shopping pick up Vitamin D drops, Vitamin C, and Zinc for your health and sanity
