Researchers from Ireland have released a report suggesting that vitamin D “can help in the mitigation of the negative health consequences” of the coronavirus crisis.
Ensuring an optimum intake of vitamins and other essential micronutrients is a key measure for anyone wanting to strengthen their immune system. This scientific fact – recognized by nine Nobel Prizes and documented in countless textbooks of biology and biochemistry around the world – is notoriously absent from essentially every public health recommendation regarding the new coronavirus.
During the current hysteria over the pandemic, no ‘official’ mention is being made of the fact that vitamin C is known to decrease or completely block the replication of all viruses it is applied to. Even in cells chronically infected with HIV, vitamin C has been shown to reduce viral replication by more than 99 percent.
Based on the above knowledge, a Chinese medical team recently reported the successful use of high-dose vitamin C to treat coronavirus patients. Similarly, the Shanghai Medical Association now specifically recommends high-dose treatment with this nutrient for even light infection with the virus. Doctors in New York state are also using vitamin C in this way.
Over the past two decades, Dr. Rath’s scientific research has shown that a specific combination of micronutrients can support and enhance the immune system. In addition to vitamin C, these micronutrients include vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, folic acid, iron, magnesium and calcium. The design of this combination is based on the micronutrient synergy approach developed by scientists at the Dr. Rath Research Institute.
