As more becomes known about the coronavirus, there is clear evidence that low levels of micronutrients increase the risk of complications and death in patients infected with it. This evidence is consistent with Dr. Rath’s revolutionary Cellular Medicine concept, which explains how micronutrient deficiency is the primary cause of diseases. Vitamins, minerals, and other essential micronutrients are important stimulators for the production and function of the body’s immune cells. In the absence of sufficient levels of micronutrients, the body’s immune system becomes weakened.
Recent research has shown that people with low levels of vitamin D have 60 percent higher rates of coronavirus infection compared to those with adequate amounts. It is also known that low levels of vitamin D increase the risk of death after contracting the virus. A link between coronavirus complications and a lack of vitamin K has similarly been demonstrated.
Doctors in China and New York state have successfully used high-dose vitamin C to treat patients infected with the virus. A critical nutrient in the pandemic, the antiviral mechanisms of vitamin C have been scientifically demonstrated in a multitude of viruses affecting humans. Vitamin C deficiency is common worldwide.
To learn how scientists at the Dr. Rath Research Institute have shown that a specific micronutrient combination can block the interaction between the binding site of the coronavirus ‘spike’ and its cellular ‘entry door’ into human cells, read this press release on our website.
