COVID-19, Allergies, Cold, or Flu?

From eNewsletter 6/17/2020

DID YOU KNOW that using stem cells from adults with a clinical diagnosis of depression, University of Illinois at Chicago researchers who conducted the study found that fish oil created an antidepressant response?

Published in this month's issue of Molecular Psychiatry, the lead author was quoted as saying, "It was exciting to find scientific evidence that fish oil, an easy-to-get, natural product, may be an effective treatment for depression."

The fish oil response was similar to that seen from prescription antidepressants, but acted on glial cells, not neurons. For many years, scientists have paid scant attention to glia, a type of brain cell that surrounds neurons, but there is increasing evidence that glia plays a strong role in depression.

STAYING SAFE DURING RE-OPENING Continue with extra immune support until summer of 2021. We don't know how virulent SARS-CoV-2 will be this summer or if there will be a second COVID wave during fall and winter. Besides, SARS-CoV-2 is not the only virus we fight. There is influenza (flu), norovirus (stomach flu), adenovirus (common cold), and four other coronaviruses (common cold), among others. Prevent and Fight Coronavirus 2.0 is our must-read protocol.


Since Illinois has moved to Phase 3, if you are local, please read our re-opening guidelines.
