This information has been updated extensively, as I learn more about this virus I update the information. I will refer you to my new compilation follow this link. New supplements have been added, and some removed.
In the beginning of learning about these deadly cytokine storms I thought that we should take cytokine inhibitor supplements to stop that from happening. I am learning that is an incorrect view point. Most of the supplements I recommended before are still going to be the same, but with a new approach.
What we want is to take things that will help our cytokines to function correctly. This requires a healthy diet and a properly functioning immune system. In the beginning of fighting this virus, we need our cytokines to be able to do their job, that is the part where we get fever and the body has a chance to fight this virus naturally on it’s own. We do not want to interfere with that process. Because of this alone I have removed Lycopene and vitamin E from this list of compounds. I will only leave those that are antivirals, and immune boosters, as well as known to be cytokine modulators. If our body functions correctly our cytokines will be inhibited by our immune function.
One that I did not have on my list and I hear many others recommending is Curcumin. I cannot recommend that as it is a cytokine inhibitor, and it could be dangerous. Pure cytokine inhibitors should be administered by medical professionals if a person progresses to the most dangerous phase of this illness. Please see this important link for further information.
Our approach before illness is not to inhibit them, rather it is to give them what they need to function properly. We want our bodies to be able to produce a safe amount of cytokines and then have the proper function to put the brakes on them. This will all depend on how our bodies respond to this virus. The best thing we can do is give our body everything it needs to function at optimum performance.
I am compiling a new article with this new information it is a work in progress you can see this new article here.
