    :wave: Here are some quick tips to supercharge your immune system:

    > Cook your food with a variety of herbs and spices.
    > Have lots of fruits and veggies.
    > Make sure you get your A-B-C-D-E vitamins, Zinc, Carotenoids, and Omega-3 fatty acids (from natural sources).
    > Reduce coffee and alcoholic drinks. Prefer organic dark chocolate and natural homemade soups, shakes, smoothies, juices, and green tea.

    And here's a secret: Nutrients are better obtained from foods than supplements. No medication is safe for long-term use.

    Stay safe and healthy. :wave:

    Sometimes its an overreaction by the immune system which makes Covid-19 so lethal to some. Its all very uncertain at this point.

    To put a pin in that, I used to take pure ascorbic acid (vitamin C) to help with depression. I don't know what it did for my immune system, but I know that when I started taking it 30,000mg at a time the euphoria was just unreal. Same thing when I superdosed niacin and thiamine. (Thiamine made me an amazing Foosball player.)

    Can't argue with the diet though. The only thing I'd say is make gradual tweaks to it over several weeks to get the body accustom to it. (But that's just me.)


    Disclaimer - my nootropic/vitamin experiments were YEARS ago. Don't copy me.

    Prayer can protect us, as well.

    As mentioned already: to boost immunity.

    You can ask me how if that is what you would like to know. I'm a health care specialist with multiple specializations within the industry.

    God's grace, I'm a Medical + Clinical Researcher and a Scientist. That covers everything. I would prefer not to reveal much information than that.

    Thank you for sharing. I did not give any medical advise. In fact, some best natural tips for health.

    Spices are powerful immune boosters. They have played a major role in medicine from the ancient times. There are too many spices to detail here for me at the moment. However, @~Cassia~ shared an excellent link that covers information about most of the spices.

    Indeed - there's good evidence that overdoing vitamin supplements is more dangerous than taking none.

    I agree. A good diet helps but pray helps more :)

    Another reason to get your vitamins and minerals from food is that the corresponding nutrients that are needed for putting those to work in the body are usually found within them, rather than with supplements that are limited to one and hence the need for so many.
    The best assurance is to eat a range of colours in fruits and veg because each corresponds to a different set of nutrients. God made them that way for a purpose.

    However the nutrients came about, I agree with your summary - but let's not forget that the vast majority of the fruit and veg we eat now has been selectively bred for so long so it's unrecognizably different from its original (natural?) form.
