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.
Related to the information circulating in the community that discusses the content of vitamin supplements that are dangerous to consume, the news cannot be justified because there are no clear sources of information.
So that news containing information whose source is unclear, cannot be accounted for and is not fit for distribution again.
Echinacea is an herbal plant based on research, has anti-inflammatory / anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and immunomodulatory properties (stimulates the development of the immune system). The emergence of inflammatory reactions / inflammation in the body is played by pro-inflammatory mediators. Meanwhile, based on scientific research conducted, Echinacea can inhibit the role of the pro-inflammatory mediator, so the inflammation process can be suppressed.
In the case of corona virus infection (COVID-19), the development of an inflammatory reaction in the body is related to the mortality / death rate. By giving anti-inflammatory substances contained in Echinacea, it should be able to suppress pro-inflammatory agents in the body. But until now there has been no specific research that explains about the effectiveness of the use of Echinacea in Corona virus infection. So that further research is needed to prove the role of Echinacea in the development of these infectious diseases.
Associated with the use of ibuprofen, the drug is a class of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. This drug works to relieve pain and reduce fever. Until now there has been no clinical evidence related to the use of ibuprofen with the risk of complications / worsening in patients with corona virus infection. So that this drug is still allowed to be consumed as a fever-lowering in people with viral infections. In addition to ibuprofen, acetaminophen drugs such as paracetamol can also relieve symptoms of fever due to viral infection.
Until now, there are no medicines, vitamin supplements, herbs or foods that are truly able to ward off and prevent transmission of the virus. The most recommended is to limit physical contact (physical distancing) with other people, often washing hands and maintaining personal hygiene.
Thus the information we can convey, hopefully helps
