Before I start with the article on vitamins to help boost your immune system, there is one urgent matter. I would like to take a moment to provide you with some valuable information regarding the Coronavirus (Covid-19).
Coronavirus or Covid-19 is rapidly spreading worldwide with a significant mortality rate. There is a real threat of a global pandemic of an easily transmissible disease, with a significant morbidity and mortality, from this epidemic if not another in the future. According to the World health Organization, Covid-19 carries at least a 14-day incubation period. Infected people will escape simple detection by temperature, permitting rapid global transmission. China placed tens of millions of people on lock down to respond to the outbreak.
Mainstream medicine has little in its arsenal for viral disease, and its therapies for bacterial infections are waning as well. Corona viruses have abundant cysteine in their spike proteins that may be easily and safely exploitable with ozone (or other oxidation) therapy. Cysteine residues are also abundant in viral membrane proteins and must be “conserved” for viral cell entry. For the full downloadable article click button bellow.

I’m sure many of you have heard the saying: “An apple a day, keeps the doctor away”. Well, there might just be some truth to that. Studies show that eating foods that are rich in nutrients and certain vitamins can give your immune system a massive boost to help fight off illness.
I took up the challenge and searched for vitamins to help boost your immune system to fight Coronavirus during this stressful time. So, here it is.
5 Vitamins to help boost your immune system.
Vitamin A help maintain the structure of the cells in your skin, respiratory tract and gut. In short, it forms a barrier and is your body’s first line of defense. Vitamin A is what helps your body make antibodies. They neutralize the pathogens that cause infection. This amazing vitamin is in oily fish, egg yolks, cheese, tofu, nuts, seeds, whole grains and legumes.
Beta-carotene is in vegetables. Your body converts it into vitamin A. Veggies that contain it include leafy green vegetables, carrots, and pumpkin.
We are all aware that Vitamin C is one, if not the biggest immune system booster of all vitamins. If you have a lack of vitamin C you are more prone to getting sick. Luckily there are lots of foods that are rich in vitamin C. Which foods you might ask? Oranges, grapefruits, tangerines, strawberries, bell peppers, spinach, kale and broccoli. It’s important to have a daily intake of vitamin C.
Vitamin C is essential for good health because your body can’t produce or store it. Good news though. There are so many other foods that contain vitamin C that most people don’t need to take a vitamin C supplement unless a doctor advises it.
Vitamin B6 is an important and vital vitamin that support the biochemical reactions in the immune system. There are quite a few foods that are rich in Vitamin B6 which include: Green vegetables and chickpeas, which is the main ingredient in hummus, chicken and cold water fish such as salmon and tuna.
There are studies that show the immune system needs vitamin D to fight off viruses. You can get vitamin D from the sun. Vitamin D is in some foods as well, including fatty fish like salmon, tuna and mackerel. It is also found in small amounts in beef liver, eggs, cheese, and mushrooms.
Vitamin E helps the body fight off infection because it is a powerful antioxidant. Foods that are rich in vitamin E include: Nuts (almonds, pine nuts, Brazil nuts, cashew nuts, etc..), seeds (Sunflower Seeds, pumpkin Seeds) and spinach.
