The Common Mans’ Guide to Preventing The Bug-19 with Whole Foods
The Bug-19 has been ravaging the world for the past two years. From multiple deaths, loss of business, and general paranoia; coivd is the monster that doesn’t seem to be going away. The mainstream media would have you believe the only way to prevent covid is a “vaccine” that doesn’t even work. They don’t want you to know that there are simple solutions that you can take to prevent covid-19, solutions that don’t include injecting an immune-suppressing substance into your body.
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin, that functions in the body to enhance calcium absorption & bone mineralization. A lesser-known role of vitamin D is that it also enhances immune function. This is clearly evidenced when you look at the relationship between vitamin D and covid-19. Amare Teshome found in his meta-analysis “The Impact of Vitamin D Level on Covid-19 Infection” that people deficient in vitamin D were 80% more likely to acquire covid-19 than those with sufficient vitamin D levels. Joseph Katz’s findings in his study “Increased Risk for Covid-19 in Vitamin D Deficieny” backed the vitamin D deficiency theory. He found that vitamin D deficient patients are 4.6x more likely to get covid than those who have adequate vitamin D levels. You may now be wondering, how much vitamin D is needed per day to be sufficient, use the chart below and find your age group to see how much you need per day.
Now that you know how much vitamin D per day you need, you have to know where can you get that vitamin D. Fish lovers, you’re in luck as fatty fish like rainbow trout, salmon, and tuna are among the best food sources of vitamin D. Mushrooms are a good source for our vegetarian/vegan friends. Dairy products & non-dairy alternatives are often fortified with vitamin D as well. Sunlight is also a great source of vitamin D. Taking a walk around the park or neighborhood for about 10-30 minutes per day is a great way to get sufficient vitamin D levels. For those who live north of Atlanta, Georgia during the Fall/Winter months, supplementation from food or pills will be needed as there won’t be enough sunlight provided to gain sufficient vitamin D levels.
Zinc is an essential mineral that plays a huge role in immune function. Zinc functions to preserve natural tissues barriers, such as the respiratory epithelium, preventing pathogen entry and balancing the immune and redox systems. Serum zinc levels are also related to covid-19 status. In Inga Wessel’s study “The Potential Impact of Zinc Supplementation on COVID-19 Pathogenesis” it was found that those most at risk for covid-19 are also deficient in zinc and that zinc deficiency is associated with the detrimental progression of covid-19. Consuming adequate amounts of zinc is highly important to preventing covid-19. Use the chart below to see how much zinc you should consume per day.
I’m a big proponent of getting nutrients from real food sources, some good sources of zinc are red meats (beef, lamb, veal), shellfish (oysters, crab, shrimp), legumes (chickpeas, lentils) or seeds (pumpkin, hemp, seasame).
Vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin that plays an important role in immune function. William Simonson’s study “Vitamin C and Coronavirus” found that vitamin C has been beneficial in treating covid-19 patients. He found that patients treated with vitamin C in 1-3g/day doses, reduced their ICU stay length by 8.6%. Dr. Andrew Weber a pulmonologist and critical care specialist has been treating his ICU covid patients with 1500mg of vitamin C 3-4x per day and found that those treated with vitamin C did significantly better than those not treated with vitamin C. These levels are much higher than the recommended daily levels of vitamin C shown below, but this is due to vitamin C levels dropping due to sepsis development in covid patients.
Finding food sources of vitamin C is simple as it is found in many fruits and vegetables. Good sources include bell peppers, kale, oranges, berries, and potatos!
Keeping adequate vitamin D, zinc and vitamin C levels is essential to the prevention of covid-19. The mainstream media won’t tell you this, that’s why we, the Men of Order, are for the people, here to spread the real truth!
