COVID 19 Daily Regimen supplements and tips 

Vitamin supplements effective for fighting COVID-19. New findings have confirmed the efficacy of dietary vitamin supplements – including vitamin C and vitamin D – in helping the immune system fight off COVID-19.

According to a new study, dietary supplements containing micronutrients and vitamins C, D, Zinc, Quercetin,  NAC are a healthy , low cost, and efficient way to help the immune system fight off COVID-19 and acute respiratory tract diseases. 

Vitamin C

There is so much good information about Vitamin C, particularly related to lung diseases, such as ADRS and septic shock. In 2019 there was a study done about how “Vitamin C Can Shorten the Length of Stay in the ICU” with data showing statistically highly significant evidence that vitamin C can shorten the length of ICU stay. []
In addition, vitamin C is a vitamin soluble in water. It dissolves in water, meaning excess quantities are not contained in your body but expelled by your urine instead. Adding more vitamin C doesn't mean the body absorbing more.

High-dose vitamin C supplements can also induce diarrhea, because they can trigger water from the cells and into your digestive tract in your body

Moreover, although high dose vitamin C appears encouraging for treatment with COVID-19, these doses were extremely high and administered via IV — not taken orally. Moreover, it was administered only in situations that were serious enough to warrant hospitalization.

Your best choice is to eat a diet full of a variety of fruits and vegetables that, along with many other nutrients and antioxidants, naturally provide all the vitamin C a healthy person requires.
If you want to take a supplement with vitamin C it is important to choose one that is of high quality and to take the right dosage.

In addition, the upper limit (UL) for supplemental vitamin C — the maximum dose that most individuals might consume without adverse effects— is 2,000 mg

You may want to choose a vitamin C supplement that has been tested by NSF International, ConsumerLab, and United States Pharmacopeia (USP).

So should you take vitamin C, yes if you can get it in the store you can take it as supplement. But don’t forget to take that bowl of fresh fruits in the morning, which has lots of vitamin C and is probably more bio available, but you can get a lot of Vitamin C in a supplemental form.

Vitamin D

There are a lot of countries, where there is not much sun and have a lot of overcast. However even in areas where there is a lot of sun like in the tropics, there are a still a lot of persons that have a Vitamin D deficiency due to the fact that they stay most of the time inside and don’t get the benefit of being in the sun. So it does not matter where you are in the world if you stay inside all the time, you are not getting enough sun exposure to get Vitamin D.

You might be wondering what dose is right for you? In general researchers are urging people to take a daily multivitamin and 2,000 international units of vitamin D, rather than the 400 to 800 recommended, depending on age, it depends on your age and a number of other factors, it is complex. So it is recommended to speak to your health care provider. You might need to be tested and put on supplementation and be retested.

With regard to Vitamin D there is a study published in 2017 with over 11,000 subjects in a med analysis of those on Vitamin D supplementation and asked the question if whether or not Vitamin D could prevent an acute respiratory tract infections and the answer was: Yes On of the take out of the study was:

  • it is better to take Vitamin D daily or weekly instead of a short period of time eg when you are sick
  • Persons with a profound vitamin D deficiency would benefit the most of taking the supplement

 Vitamin D could help fight off Covid-19 – new TILDA research.



The reason for this is the early studies on hydroxychloroquine. Hydroxychloroquine has a number of mechanisms that might inhibit the virus SARS-CoV-2 from replicating in the cell. One of those mechanisms is that it changes the pH of the endosomes, that are needed for the virus to get into the cell and that can prevent the entry of the virus into the cell. Another mechanism is through zinc anonoform. Hydroxychloroquine is a zinc anonoform and as such when zinc comes into the cell, that can shut down the replicase enzyme, that the SARS-CoV-2 virus needs to replicate.

It turns out that Quercetin is also a zinc anonoform. Quercetin is found naturally in unions, capers and other food products. You also can get Quercetin as a supplement.

You can take like 500mg twice a day

N Acetyl Cysteine (NAC)

This is another supplement that can be beneficially for Influenza-Like symptoms. In a published study about the effect [source] it showed that taking NAC supplement for a 6 month period of time twice daily doses of 600mg, while it did not reduced the chances of getting Influenza virus, it surely reduced the severity of the Influenza like illness. This was especially for the elderly and high risk individuals. The difference was tremendous only 25% of the persons taking NAC vs 79% for the placebo group developed a symptomatic from.

The function of NAC is that it is helping the liver in terms of reducing glutathione (GSH) powerful antioxidant found in every cell in the body. It is made of three types of molecules known as amino acids. Reducing is the opposite of oxidizing, so it is an antioxidant essentially and it helps the liver in terms of getting rid of toxins.

Therefor it might be beneficially to take 600mg twice a day.

Zinc inhibits replication of the virus. You would only take this when you think you are exposed to the virus as there is some evidence that taking zinc lozenges or syrup starting on the first day of a cold can help you get over a cold faster.

Results from the trials showed that zinc reduced the duration (not the severity) of common cold symptoms when used therapeutically. Taking higher doses then the recommended 40 mg a day, might decrease how much cupper your body can absorb and therefor is not something that you should do on a regular basis.


Another important factor is the amount of sleep. There is a lot of data that show that sleep is important. Sleep helps boosting T cell responses.

You should get 7-8 hours sleep a day on a regular basis.

Research showed that several Gαs-coupled receptor ligands potently inhibit TCR-mediated integrin activation on antigen-specific CD8+ T cells, whereas sleep up-regulates integrin activation by suppressing Gαs-coupled receptor signaling. Given the importance of integrin activation for the formation of immunological synapses (Dustin and Springer, 1989; Abram and Lowell, 2009; Dustin and Long, 2010; Fooksman et al., 2010; Long, 2011), the data suggest a critical role of conditions like sleep that are characterized by low levels of Gαs-coupled receptor ligands, in boosting T cell responses

Contrast Shower

By alternating between hot and cold, a very energizing sensation result. Contrast showers have been shown to boost the immune system to help prevent and fight off common illnesses like colds and flu. All you need is a shower with the ability to rapidly switch temperatures between hot and cold, and a dry towel .

A number of studies (mostly retrospective and poorly controlled) suggest that regular sauna visits reduce the incidence of common colds in children and adults. Recently it has been shown that breathing humid, hot air (a sauna for the upper respiratory tract, so to speak) is effective in treating common colds

To implement this in your regimen try the following contrast shower sequence:

5 Minutes Hot Shower - 1 Minute Cold Shower
3 Minutes Hot Shower - 1 Minute Cold Shower
3 Minutes Hot Shower - 1 Miinute Cold Shower
Total of 14 Minutes

There is a wealth of evidence, meanwhile, that shows the role that good nutrition plays in supporting the immune system. As a nation, along with the other relevant, more general messages, we need to do a better job of getting the message across.

Boosting the immune system with vitamin supplements

Critical to immune function are vitamin C, vitamin D, zinc, and omega-3 fatty acid found in fish, docosahexaenoic acid, also known as DHA.

The researchers suggest public health officials will provide a specific collection of dietary guidelines to supplement messages on the importance of hand washing and vaccinations in preventing infection from spreading.
