Everyone knows that your health and immune system is influenced and determined by many factors, such as your genes (genetic inheritance), your lifestyle, diet, stress and nutritional status etc.
When choosing food supplements or products which support the immune system, or have anti-viral or anti-bacterial properties, it is important to choose wisely and do your homework.
One wants to choose a nutritional supplement which contains the right blend of vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants and plant or herb extracts, which have been shown in research to be effective and safe, in the correct doses.
There are literally thousands of food supplements on the market and hundreds which can support the immune system. A very good new product on the market is CODE 19 multivitamin, mineral, anti-oxidant, herb and plant extracts capsule supplement. CODE 19 has not been proven to prevent or cure the COVID-19 virus infection, but it does contain nutritional and herbal and plant extracts which have been shown to help support the immune system and, or, have anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-oxidant actions. CODE 19 Food Supplement contains selenium, zinc, copper, beta carotene, vitamin D3, co-enzyme Q10, Echinacea extract, Elderberry extract, beta glucans 3, 6, Pau D’Arco, Astragalus, Cinnamon, Garlic, Ginger and Grape Seed extracts. These ingredients have multiple health and immune support benefits. Highly recommended.

VITAMIN D3-ZINC-SELENIUM FOOD SUPPLEMENT
Doctors, Pharmacists, Dieticians, Nutritionists and other Health Care Practitioners have known for ages that Vitamin D3, zinc and selenium are essential nutrients for good health, the immune system and bones, but scientists have only recently discovered, together with Frontline Doctors, just how important they are with respect to the COVID-19 virus infection pandemic.
Together with vitamin C, vitamin D3 and zinc levels in individuals with the COVID-19 virus infection can play a crucial role in helping the patient overcome the virus infection, or progress to a more serious state and pass away from the disease. Low levels are associated with a poorer outcome and higher levels and supplementation with a better outcome, according to latest research and clinical observation.
Other nutrients which can play a key role and work synergistically with vitamin D3, zinc and vitamin C are selenium, copper, B complex vitamins like vitamin B3 (niacin) and vitamin B1 (thiamine), as well as magnesium and quercetin. These nutrients and anti-oxidants help support the immune system and have anti-viral properties, according to scientific studies. ZINC-D3-SELENIUM PLUS capsules from Xtreme Health contain all of the above ingredients, except for vitamin C, which should be taken separately in high doses. The product does not claim to guarantee prevention of, or cure of, COVID-19 infection, but the ingredients do support the immune system and are recommended by frontline doctors in their fight against the virus.
