We understand the concerns that you feel
Pandemic COVID-19 disease by the New Variant corona virus (SARS-COV 2) raises various concerns for the community. Symptoms that look similar to the symptoms of the common cold, in some groups of people can trigger respiratory problems that lead to respiratory failure and death. But for those who have good immunity, the virus will disappear on its own with or without symptoms.
Immunity / endurance can be maintained by doing a healthy and clean lifestyle, consuming foods that contain complete and balanced nutrition, adequate rest, doing regular exercise and avoiding stress.
Good immunity can help prevent various infectious diseases, one of which is corona virus infection.
Some studies confirm that taking vitamin and mineral supplements, certain herbal supplements and other substances can increase the body's immune system.
Zinc is a mineral substance that plays a role in the development of the body's immune cells. Zinc also plays a role in the inflammatory response. Zinc deficiency risks affecting the functioning of the immune system and increasing the incidence of infections.
Not only zinc, other important substances such as Vitamin B, vitamin C, vitamin D, Echinacea, prolopis, and various other substances can help boost the body's immune system.
What you need to know is, food supplements that contain a variety of vitamins and minerals can not cure, alleviate or directly prevent infectious diseases. Eating supplements work to affect the body's immune cells. Good immunity is not only due to nutritional factors, but various other factors also affect the body's immune system.
There are no studies that clearly explain the effectiveness of vitamin supplements to prevent corona virus infection (COVID-19) specifically.
The most important thing to do besides keeping a clean and healthy lifestyle, also doing social distancing is to limit and keep a distance from others and to diligently wash your hands every time.
Thus the information we can convey, hopefully helps
