Hello Steven, thanks for asking.
The COVID-19 pandemic is indeed the number one concern worldwide. Various precautions are encouraged at any time, including individual efforts to increase endurance. Basically, herbal supplements to increase endurance, of course the composition is very diverse and different for each brand. Indeed some time ago it was circulated a ban to take certain types of herbal supplements, because it was feared it would increase the adverse effects of corona virus infection. Until now we have not found any concrete evidence based on scientific research that states that. Even if there are studies that examine the effects of propolis, echinaceae, or certain herbal supplements, most likely the research is still ongoing and has not produced results. Therefore, if someone wants to take a certain type of supplement, make sure the consumption according to the recommended dose and not excessive. Remember, supplements are only helpful. The most important endurance enhancement is obtained from:
get enough rest per day, sleep 7-9 hours a night.
avoid psychological stress as much as possible, limit reading news about the pandemic, try to look for positive activities that can be done at home.
basking in the morning sun every day, at least 15 minutes.
exercise regularly every day, at least 30 minutes. Sports can be in the form of running in place, gymnastics, yoga, pilates, and so on.
ensure optimal nutrition, balanced between carbohydrates, protein, and fat. Increase consumption of vegetables and fruit as much as possible.
avoid cigarettes and alcohol.
limit contact with others, leave the house only when absolutely necessary.
wash your hands often and do not touch your face unless absolutely necessary.
consumption of multivitamins and supplements in appropriate amounts, not excessive.
Hopefully, this information can help you to stay healthy.
