Vitamin Expert O: What supplements would you recommend to protect against the Q: Coronavirus? A. Covid-19 is so new that no one can say with certainty what supplements or drugs can prevent, or treat it. Vitamin D reduces risk of viral and respiratory diseases, so it seems rational to take 2,000 units daily. Echinacea, Medicinal Mushrooms, and Astragalus have been shown to have immune stimulant properties, and may be of help. My personal inclination leans toward two herbs: Andrographis and Quercetin. Andrographis has been used for colds and flu in Ayurvedic Medicine. It has anti-viral and antibacterial properties, as well as anti-inflammatory action. I always keep it on hand for my family for influenza infections. Quercetin also has anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties. It has been found in laboratory studies to inhibit Sars-CoV, which is related to Covid-19. A clinical trial is presently planned or underway in China to investigate its effectiveness for Covid-19.
