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 help delay the progress to a more serious state and the person passes 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.CO.ZA 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.
