Consuming Propolis In The Corona Virus Pandemic
Tonight dock, I want to ask, is it true that propolis is not recommended for routine consumption during the spread of COVID-19 doc ?, Is it dangerous and not good for consumption, some say propolis will cause excessive immune reactions? if so, why do you dock? Thanks.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, in a pandemic like today, there are indeed very many hoaks that are spread, both regarding supplements that are either consumed or supplements that are not recommended for consumption for various reasons. Propolis (as well as several other types of herbs) which is claimed to increase the body's immune system is said to cause an excessive immune response that would destroy the body's own cells when infected with the corona virus. However, until now there has been no research conducted that proves this. There are no studies that also prove that propolis (or other herbs) have certain benefits in preventing corona virus infection.
Because there has not been any research that shows the benefits or safety of propolis consumption, there is no official recommendation of the use or prohibition of propolis or other herbs for consumption while facing the corona virus pandemic today. Some of the more important things for you to consider are:
Stay at home, do social and physical distancing, don't leave the house if you are not really forced Don't go to crowded and crowded places, avoid using public transportation Keep your distance from others, at least 1.8-2 meters, avoid direct contact such as shaking hand, hug, or kiss the cheek Wash hands with soap as often as possible, or use a hand sanitizer if there is no place to wash your hands Take care of your health by getting enough sleep, eating enough, drinking enough, exercising at least 30 minutes a day, and avoiding smoking and exposure to cigarette smoke . Masks are not recommended for use by healthy people because they are not effective in preventing transmission
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
