Essential Nutrition to Protect Yourself From Coronavirus

By Joseph Mercola

As for prevention to viruses, nutrition plays a crucial role and several nutrients are known for their immune-boosting properties and ability to ward against viral infections. As reported in a February 24, 2020 press release:1 2

“In a compelling article3 in Progress in Cardiovascular Diseases … Mark McCarty of the Catalytic Longevity Foundation, San Diego, CA, USA, and James DiNicolantonio, PharmD, a cardiovascular research scientist at Saint Luke’s Mid America Heart Institute, Kansas City, MO, propose that certain nutraceuticals may help provide relief to people infected with encapsulated RNA viruses such as influenza and coronavirus …

COVID-19 is around 30 to 60 times more lethal than the typical annual flu. Both influenza and coronavirus cause an inflammatory storm in the lungs and it is this inflammatory storm that leads to acute respiratory distress, organ failure, and death.

Certain nutraceuticals may help to reduce the inflammation in the lungs from RNA viruses and others may also help boost type 1 interferon response to these viruses, which is the body’s primary way to help create antiviral antibodies to fight off viral infections.”

McCarty and DiNicolantonio list several nutrients available in supplement form that may be of particular benefit against COVID-19, including the those listed below. For more details about each, see the full-text paper4 published in Progress in Cardiovascular Diseases:

  • N-acetylcysteine (NAC) — Encourages glutathione production, thins mucus, lowers your chances of influenza infection and reduces your risk of developing severe bronchitis
  • Elderberry extract — Known to shorten influenza duration by two to four days and reduce the severity of the flu. According to the authors:5

    “Given that elderberry is a very rich source of anthocyanins, there is reason to suspect that its impact on viruses might be mediated, at least in part, by ferulic acid, a prominent metabolite that appears in plasma following anthocyanin ingestion.”

  • Spirulina — Reduces severity of influenza infection and lowers influenza mortality in animal studies. In a human trial, spirulina significantly lowered the viral load in patients with HIV infection
  • Beta-glucan — Reduces severity of influenza infection severity and lowers influenza mortality in animal studies
  • Glucosamine — Upregulates mitochondrial antiviral-signaling protein (MAVS), reduces severity of influenza infection severity and lowers influenza mortality in animal studies
  • Selenium — “Since selenium is an essential cofactor for certain peroxidases, and selenium deficiency has been endemic in certain regions of China and other parts of the world, insuring adequacy of selenium nutrition might also be appropriate in this context,” McCarty and DiNicolantonio note, adding:6

    “Selenium deficiency also increases the rate at which viruses can mutate, promoting the evolution of strains that are more pathogenic and capable of evading immune surveillance.”

  • Zinc — Supports “effective function and proliferation of various immune cells,” lowering mortality in the elderly by 27%
  • Lipoic acid — Helps boost type 1 interferon response. As explained in a 2014 paper:7

    “Type I interferons (IFNs) activate intracellular antimicrobial programs and influence the development of innate and adaptive immune responses … (IFNs) are polypeptides that are secreted by infected cells and have three major functions.

    First, they induce cell-intrinsic antimicrobial states in infected and neighboring cells that limit the spread of infectious agents, particularly viral pathogens. Second, they modulate innate immune responses in a balanced manner that promotes antigen presentation and natural killer cell functions while restraining pro-inflammatory pathways and cytokine production.

    Third, they activate the adaptive immune system, thus promoting the development of high-affinity antigen-specific T and B cell responses and immunological memory. Type I IFNs are protective in acute viral infections but can have either protective or deleterious roles in bacterial infections and autoimmune diseases.”

  • Sulforaphane — Helps boost type 1 interferon response

A 2005 study8 in The Journal of Infectious Diseases also found resveratrol has the power to inhibit the replication of influenza A virus, significantly improving survival in influenza-infected mice. According to the authors, resveratrol “acts by inhibiting a cellular, rather than a viral, function,” which suggests it “could be a particularly valuable anti-influenza drug.”

Suggested Daily Dosages

The provisional daily dosage suggestions offered by McCarty and DiNicolantonio to help control RNA viruses, including influenza and coronavirus infection, are as follows:9

suggested daily dosages

The Importance of Vitamin D Optimization

Solar ultraviolet-B radiation and supplemental vitamin D have also been shown to reduce pandemic fatality rates, which makes sense considering how important vitamin D is for controlling infections and lowering your risk for influenza and the common cold.

Research shows high-dose vitamin D supplementation lowers the risk of respiratory illnesses and lung infections in the elderly by 40%. As noted by an author of that study, “Vitamin D can improve the immune system’s ability to fight infections because it bolsters the first line of defense of the immune system.”

Research10 published in 2009 pointed suggests fatality rates during the 1918-1919 influenza pandemic were influenced by season, with greater numbers of people dying during the winter than the summer. According to the authors:11

“Deaths during the 1918–1919 influenza pandemic have been linked to both the influenza virus and secondary bacterial lung infections. Case fatality rates and percentage of influenza cases complicated by pneumonia were available from survey data for twelve United States locations in the 1918–1919 pandemic.

This study analyzes case fatality rates and cases complicated by pneumonia with respect to estimated summertime and wintertime solar ultraviolet-B (UVB) doses as indicators of population mean vitamin D status.

Substantial correlations were found for associations of July UVB dose with case fatality rates and rates of pneumonia as a complication of influenza. Similar results were found for wintertime UVB. Vitamin D upregulates production of human cathelicidin, LL-37, which has both antimicrobial and antiendotoxin activities.

Vitamin D also reduces the production of proinflammatory cytokines, which could also explain some of the benefit of vitamin D since H1N1 infection gives rise to a cytokine storm.”

As a general guideline, get your vitamin D level tested twice a year, in the winter and summer, to make sure you’re in a healthy range of 60 ng/mL to 80 ng/mL year-round. (A compelling body of research suggests 40 ng/mL is the cutoff for sufficiency.)

Take Control of Your Gut

Last but not least, should the inclusion of Prevotella bacteria in COVID-19 turn out to be accurate, prebiotics, probiotics and sporebiotics may be of significant use. A number of studies 12 have shown Bifidobacterium bifidum strain probiotics can help reduce Prevotella, while Lactobacillus strains tend to increase it.

Sporebiotics may be particularly beneficial. Spore-based probiotics consist of the cell wall of bacillus spores — the protective shell around the DNA and the working mechanism of that DNA — not the whole, live bacterium.

Bacillus spores have been shown to dramatically increase immune tolerance, which means they help repair damage in your intestinal barrier. Since they’re not “live,” they’re also unaffected by antibiotics.

The bacillus very effectively modulates cytokines — anti-inflammatory cytokines are upregulated while inflammatory cytokines are downregulated, thereby restoring balance between the two.

Research has also shown that sporebiotics massively increase reproduction of acidophilus, bifidus and other microbes in your gut via the electromagnetic messages they send out. This is entirely unique. When you take a regular probiotic, they primarily take care of themselves. Bacillus spores, on the other hand, actually enhance many of the other beneficial microbes.

Bacillus spores also create 24 different substances that have strong antimicrobial properties. However, they do not kill indiscriminately like antibiotics do. They can specifically suppress pathogens that do make a valuable contribution to the whole.

Taking measures to strengthen your immune system is a wise strategy to protect yourself against illness as a strong immune system is your No. 1 defense against all types of infections, both viral and bacterial, and the nutraceuticals discussed in this article can assist you in that effort.

Governments call for crackdown on Telegram because some people are using it

German bureaucrats have declared the Telegram messaging app to be a threat to “democracy” and a “hotbed of radicalization” because some people use it to organize protests against Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) fascism.

Fake news stories from German media outlets such as Tagesschau and Deutsche Welle have been consistently framing Telegram as a gathering place for “dangerous conspiracies, vaccine misinformation, and the driving force behind the ‘violent’ protests” against the country’s lockdowns, mask mandates, and compulsory “vaccination” edicts.

Since the beginning of December, in fact, the fake news media machine in Germany has been going nuts in opposition to Telegram – almost like they are all controlled by the same hidden hand of propaganda.

Thüringen interior minister George Mair, a member of the Social Democrats party in Germany, actually proposed trying to penalize Telegram if the platform refuses to remove “harmful” content that goes against the government’s Fauci Virus tyranny.

Mair says that bureaucrats like himself could set up “geoblocking” protocols to disallow Germans from using the platform. The service could also be disabled from certain regions of the country using IP protocol blocking.

Roland Wöller of the Christian Democrat party echoed Mair’s sentiments, suggesting that more “radicalization” on Telegram will occur if politicians like himself impose mandatory jab policies across Germany.

Wöller has suggested punishing the company behind the Telegram app if any “criminal” acts that occur in Germany can somehow be traced back to the platform’s use.

“Officials are also calling for the deanonymization of users on the platform,” reported The National Pulse.

Wöller further suggested opening criminal investigations into Telegram users after their anonymity is scrapped.

Germany’s tyrant political class says opposing covid fascism is “hate”

At no point have any of these corrupt bureaucrats even considered the fact that they are the ones who have been radicalized. Their total lack of self-awareness has led them to the conclusion that their imposition of mass medical fascism is completely normal, and that anyone who opposes it is a “terrorist.”

The truth, of course, is that Mair and Wöller and their kind are the true radicalized terrorists in this whole equation. They are the ones who deserve prosecution and punishment for committing crimes against humanity.

They do not see things this way, though. Nancy Faeser, the new German government’s interior minister, recently announced that her number-one priority is to fight “right-wing extremism” on Telegram.

Faeser believes that all opposition to Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) fascism represents “hate speech and aggression,” and that it must be punished with “strict measures” to stamp it out from all of Germany.

“What is happening on Telegram is not only disgusting and inappropriate, but also, in most cases, criminal,” further decreed Marco Buschmann, a member of the German Bundestag and yet another medical fascist leading Germany off a cliff.

“The law is clear on this,” Buschmann further declared. “We have to think about all the possibilities … my wish is not to have a German way … but a European framework, which will allow us to fight against this hate.”

It is important to point out that ever since these Fauci Flu fascists have started aggressively abusing Germans with all of their new “safety” restrictions, disease and death have skyrocketed.

Germany is now sicker and more blanketed with death thanks to covid jab “passports,” lockdown measures, mask mandates and other forms of tyranny that the ruling class is desperately trying to establish as the “new normal” for society.

“Mass formation psychosis or demonic delusion? Take your pick,” wrote one Natural News commenter about all this evil.

It’s quite a trick to use “tolerance” as an argument for oppression and violence.

Fauci Calls on Fox News to Fire Jesse Watters For Telling People to “Ambush” Him with Questions About Funding Gain-of-Function at Wuhan Lab (VIDEO)

Dr. Fauci on Tuesday called on Fox News to fire host Jesse Watters for telling TPUSA attendees to “ambush” Fauci with questions about funding gain-of-function research at the Wuhan lab.

Fauci lied under oath to Congress about funding chimeric virus research in Wuhan.

Millions died worldwide after a man-made Coronavirus escaped the Wuhan lab in late 2019.

Jesse Watters told TPUSA attendees to get in Fauci’s face and confront him on his role that led to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Now you go in for the kill shot. The kill shot? With an ambush? Deadly. Because he doesn’t see it coming,” Watters said Monday night.

Fauci said Watters should be fired on the spot.

“That’s awful that he said that. And he’s going to go, very likely, unaccountable,” Fauci said on CNN. “I mean, whatever network he’s on is not going to do anything for him. I mean, that’s crazy. The guy should be fired on the spot.”

“The only thing that I have ever done throughout these two years is to encourage people to practice good public health practices: to get vaccinated, to be careful in public settings, to wear a mask,” Fauci said. “And for that, you have some guy out there saying that people should be giving me a kill shot to ambush me? I mean, what kind of craziness is there in society these days?”

Fauci’s latest baldfaced lie:

A kill shot like he’s foisting on america’s children?   If he was just incompetent his dismal record would be enough to get him fired.    But he’s created the means for terrorists such as himself to manufacture pathogens without culpability.   The man is hitler incarnate.   People have been hung for far less than what he’s done.

RFK Jr: US Intel Agencies and Military Were Involved With Wuhan Lab Research and No-See-Um Technology

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. is the author of the recent best-seller “The Real Anthony Fauci”, a powerful expose on Dr. Tony Fauci’s disturbing and disastrous tenure as the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID) Director.

On Saturday Robert F. Kennedy Jr. joined Steve Bannon on The War Room for an hour-long interview.

During their discussion, Kennedy described what US intelligence and military involvement in the Wuhan laboratory leak and bioresearch over the past two decades.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.: They never talk about public health. They never talk about how to repurpose medication, how to quarantine the sick, how to get people to eat Vitamin D, and zinc and exercise and build their immune system. There’s none of that discussion. It’s all about how to use a pandemic as a pretense to obliterate democracy… The CIA through USAID was the biggest funder, even bigger than Tony Fauci, of gain of function studies in Wuhan, the Pentagon was second, Tony Fauci was third… The Pentagon began funnelled the money through Tony Fauci to Wuhan, $1.7 billion a year. Now it’s $2.2 billion. They also gave Fauci a 68% raise attached to his bioweapons research. That’s one of the reasons why he had to continue to do this gain of function research even when Obama told him to stop in 2014. He didn’t… Ralph Baric with funding from Tony Fauci developed the system for hiding the evidence of engineering. If you were really interested in public health you would want to do the opposite of that… That’s not what they were doing. They were weaponizing it so that it could not be traced back to when they dropped it on the world. Baric then with funding from Fauci then taught that technology which he called the “no-see-um” technology to Zheng-Li Shi, the Chinese scientist who was running that lab under the control of the Chinese communist party and the People’s Liberation Army… Tony Fauci funded it.

Bioterrorist Warns of New ‘Monster’ Virus

Moderna’s chief medical officer has warned that the Delta and Omicron variants of COVID-19 could combine to create a ‘monster’ virus.

Here we go again.

Paul Burton made the comments while addressing the House of Commons Technologies and Science Committee members on Tuesday.

Burton claimed that it was possible for someone to contract both variants at the same time, which “certainly gives an opportunity for the two viruses to, what we call, recombinate,” meaning they could begin to “share genes and to swap genes over.”

This could “certainly” lead to worse COVID-19 symptoms than usual, according to Burton, who added that “it is really important to think about it” given the rapid spread of Omicron.

Aleksandr Semyonov, head of Russia’s Vector virology research center, said that although it would be a “rather rare phenomenon,” a potential Delta-Omicron combination is still possible.

I’m sure the solution to any future variant or ‘monster virus’ will be more restrictions, more lockdowns and yet more vaccines.

And Moderna will be handily placed to take advantage of that.

As we previously highlighted, Moderna’s Stephane Bancel said that even younger people will have to get vaccine booster shots at least once every three years.

When comedian Trevor Noah recently questioned whether the CEO of Moderna had a conflict of interest in calling for new vaccines to fight Omicron, he was attacked as an “anti-vaxxer” by his own fans.

Austria Hiring People to “Hunt Down Vaccine Refusers”

The Austrian government is hiring people to “hunt down vaccine refusers,” according to a report published by Blick.

Yes, really.

The burden for enforcing the fines unjabbed Austrians will have to pay as part of their punishment will fall to their employers, necessitating a new army of ‘inspectors’ to ensure that process is running smoothly.

The city of Linz, which is home to 200,000 inhabitants, has a relatively low vaccination rate of 63 per cent.

In response, “Linz now wants to hire people who are supposed to hunt down vaccine refusers,” reports Swiss news outlet Blick.

The role of the inspectors will be to check on “whether those who do not get vaccinated really pay for it.”

The vaccine refusenik hunters will receive a wage of 2774 euros, which will be paid 14 times a year, making an annual income of 38,863 euros.

Nice work if you can get it.

“The job includes, among other things, the creation of penal orders as well as the processing of appeals,” according to the report, adding that workers need to be “resilient” and willing to work a lot of overtime.

The jobs are only open to Austrian citizens, all of whom will either have to be vaccinated against or fully recovered from COVID.

As we previously highlighted, the unvaccinated in Austria could find themselves imprisoned for a year under a new administrative law that would force them to pay for their own internment.

Austrians who don’t get vaccinated by February face fines of up to €7,200 ($8,000) for non-compliance, and those who refuse to pay would also face a 12 month jail sentence.
