DID YOU KNOW that astaxanthin has exceeded just carotenoid and antioxidant status, and is now considered a mitochondrial regulator? For those of you who are not familiar, mitochondria is an organelle in the cell that creates energy. A new study from Nutrients confirmed and explained the mechanism by which astaxanthin enhances mitochondrial energy. We now know why so many athletes, those with cardiac deficits, those with fatigue disorders, and many others with mitochondrial-related disorders derive such benefit from astaxanthin supplementation. Astaxanthin appears as an option on our Prevent and Fight Viruses 2.0 Protocol because it is a potent antioxidant that quenches free radicals produced by SARS-CoV-2. Astaxanthin is also part of our Post COVID Syndrome 2.0 Action Plan because "long COVID" is a mitochondrial disorder and astaxanthin can enhance mitochondrial recovery and function.

UPDATE - COVID-19 Vaccine Information We updated this document Monday, January 10th.

Virus Prevention And Treatment Vaccines will minimize COVID-19 related mortality and hospitalizations, but SARS-CoV-2 is not going away, as evidenced by its ever-mutating variants. Moreover, SARS-CoV-2 is not the only virus we fight. There are influenza (flu), norovirus (stomach flu), adenovirus (common cold), and four other coronaviruses (common cold), among others.We highly recommend continuing your immune support. For more information, refer to our Prevent and Fight Viruses 2.0 Protocol.

COVID-19 UPDATE

Steve: Whitehouse spokesperson Dr. Anthony Fauci and CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky should be paying attention to, and include, all of the incredible data that is being published about diet, supplements, complementary, and lifestyle therapies for COVID-19 prevention and treatment. Instead, they are still just focusing on vaccines, masks, and drug treatments. Feast your eyes on the following: Zinc A new study from Frontiers in Medicine found that zinc picolinate at 10 mg, 25 mg and 50 mg per day all work to “prevent or mitigate” the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus. What's more exciting about this case control study is that most of the subjects had COVID-19 comorbidities, which means they were overweight/obese and/or diabetic. Subjects who did not take zinc were seven times more likely to develop symptomatic COVID-19 infection compared to those taking zinc. Researchers also found that for every additional comorbidity, the likelihood of developing symptomatic COVID-19 infection increased 1.57 times. In addition, symptoms were much worse in subjects who were not taking zinc. Role of Immunomodulatory Nutrients in Alleviating COVID Complications An Advances in Nutrition review purports that evidence demonstrates supplementation with immune-supportive micronutrients such as vitamins D and C and zinc may modulate immunity and alleviate the severity and risk of infection. The review indicated that supplementation with high-dose vitamin C, vitamin D, and zinc may alleviate the complications caused by COVID-19, including inflammatory markers, oxygen therapy, length of hospitalization, and mortality. While trials are ongoing to further identify the most effective nutrients and the right dosages to combat SARS-CoV-2, the aforementioned should be included in governmental prevention protocols. Melatonin Researchers in a new Biorxiv study recommend repurposing and treating melatonin like a drug for the prevention of brain infection by SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19-related long-term neurological symptoms. Prevention Through Diet, Supplements, and Lifestyle A sweeping editorial in Nutrients implores world health public officials to address "the implementation of efficacious non-pharmacological interventions (such as dietary supplements) coupled with the promotion of healthy dietary and lifestyle patterns may promote overall health and reduce one’s risk of infection, disease, and death as a result of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic."

DID YOU KNOW that children, adolescents, and young adults who spend 30 minutes outside in the sun daily may cut their risk of developing multiple sclerosis (MS) in half, new research from Neurology suggests? Young adults with MS aged 3-22 years who spent an average of 30 minutes to 1 hour outside daily during the previous summer had a 52% lower chance of developing MS compared with those who spent less than 30 minutes outdoors daily. Additionally, those who spent 1-2 hours outdoors daily had an 81% lower risk for MS. "The take-home message is that spending more time outdoors in the sun can be helpful to prevent an autoimmune disease like MS," the authors purport. They cite two possible reasons for these associations: the effect of sun exposure on vitamin D levels and the immunomodulating effect of ultraviolet light through the skin, which has an anti-inflammatory effect. While many climates cannot provide the outdoor sun exposure during part of the year, vitamin D supplementation can assure you are getting plenty of vitamin D!

Social Impact of Magnesium Deficiency

A survey on the social impact of the principal diseases linked to magnesium deficiency was reported in a recent issue of Nutrients, focusing in particular on diabetes, osteoporosis, cardiovascular, and neurological diseases and cancer. These are considered "social pathologies" because of the significant impact on the lives of people people affected and their families, but also on the community’s economy and social life. Unfortunately, world public health experts suggest that more than 75% of the human population do not get enough daily magnesium or are deficient. Even healthy people risk insufficient magnesium intake due to a decreased presence in the modern diet characterized by a wide use of demineralized water, processed foods, and agricultural practices that use soil deficient in magnesium for growing food. The conclusion of this study is that subclinical magnesium deficiency increases the burdens of nations around the world with incalculable healthcare costs and suffering, and should be considered a public health crisis. This why magnesium was, and will always be, one of the most important foundational nutrients requiring supplementation for almost all human beings.

DID YOU KNOW that the cells in your body are constantly renewing themselves, with older cells aging and dying as new ones are being born? But sometimes that process goes awry. Occasionally damaged cells linger. Called senescent cells, they hang around, acting as a bad influence on other cells nearby. Their bad influence changes how the neighboring cells handle sugars or proteins , thus causing metabolic problems, such as type 2 diabetes. Clearing away those senescent cells seems to stop diabetic behavior, according to a study in Cell Metabolism. And of the two substances that protected against the harmful effects of the fat tissue, one of them was quercetin!

COVID-19 UPDATE

Steve: Over the last week, there has been a bevy of research on the Omicron variant. The most important early discovery is that Omicron DOES NOT escape T cell immunity. T cells come along after two or three days of symptomatic infection to knock it out. While prior variants were able to bypass T cell immunity and wreak havoc around the rest of the body, for those who have already had COVID-19 infection or COVID-19 vaccination, the early returns indicate T
