kelly-sikkema-OAGxf_VMjkI-unsplash-300x200As cases of coronavirus surge in the United States, the sharp rise reinforces the importance of practicing safety measures and ensuring that your immune system is receiving the nourishment it needs to keep its defenses strong.

Some recent developments also provide evidence on the importance of consuming the right vitamins and minerals. For example, a recent study completed in Dallas, Texas suggests that being deficient in vitamin D has strong ties to coronavirus mortality rates in European countries.

On a more positive note, a different study suggests that high doses of vitamin C may assist with expediting the recovery process among patients diagnosed with coronavirus. The research shows that the vitamin may prove useful in the prevention and treatment of respiratory and systemic infections. Its effects are improved when vitamin C is combined with nutritious food.

Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that serves a critical role in growing and repairing tissues throughout the body. Thankfully, getting your daily dose of it is simple as it’s packed into many fruits and vegetables like oranges, bell peppers, and more.

Yet another different study shows that a fusion of vitamins B12, D3, plus the important mineral magnesium may assist with preventing the progression of coronavirus into a more severe or potentially fatal stage among senior citizens.

Finally, a UCHealth article dives deep into the effects of zinc and how it may prove useful in shortening the length of the coronavirus or reducing its symptoms. Zinc is another important mineral used to treat the common cold, among its many other health benefits.

Besides a healthy, nutrient-rich diet, preventing the odds of becoming infected with coronavirus is also taking the measures to keep the environment clean and free of pathogens. Ozone, for example, can destroy viruses while hypochlorous acid is a potent, natural oxidant frequently used for sanitation, known for its ability to disinfect and get rid of bacteria, viruses, and even fungi. Thymol is a natural compound derived from thyme plants packed with antimicrobial properties capable of killing kill 99.9% of germs, bacteria, and viruses without the harsh chemicals often associated with standard cleaning products.
