Foods & Supplements to Help Fight the Coronavirus COVID-19

*Disclaimer – these foods & supplements are not evidence-based, in that – with the possible exception of vitamin C, they haven’t been shown to treat COVID-19.
However, I think it’s misleading in a sense to say there’s no evidence for any supplements to help prevent or treat COVID-19.

In instances like these, where there is very limited amounts of research to call upon (nobody’s going to fund millions to test the potency of cheap vitamin supplements); you should use a different type of reasoning – I think it’s called Bayesian reasoning but a could be wrong – take what you know and see if in all liklihood it could be applied in this situation.

Also look at the risk to reward ratio – what’s the risk of taking a food or supplement Vs what’s the reward. So taking vitamin C at high doses, might at worst, make you feel sick but if it likely helps boost your immune system then brilliant – good trade off. However the Miracle Mineral supplement that is said to contain a bleaching agent – it sounds like that’s not worth the risk!

Please note – this post isn’t finished yet – but I wanted to publish it because I keep getting asked about supplements, herbs and COVID-19
