Zinc boosts immunity and helps regrow immune cells, study finds

Since at least the 1970s, zinc has been recognized as an essential nutrient for the body. More than 300 enzymes throughout the body require it for normal function, and the scientific consensus is that zinc supports immunity. Now, a new study has confirmed that zinc also helps regrow immune cells, making it something of an immune booster. … Continue reading Zinc boosts immunity and helps regrow immune cells, study finds

Study: Proper hydration found to reduce long-term risks for heart failure

A study conducted by researchers from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) found that drinking enough water daily can help reduce long-term risks for heart disease. Heart failure is a chronic condition that develops when the heart is unable to pump enough blood for the body’s needs. It affects over 6.2 million Americans or a little over two … Continue reading Study: Proper hydration found to reduce long-term risks for heart failure

Study suggests these nutrients can improve lean body mass in older adults

The progressive loss of muscle mass with advancing age is a major health issue facing older adults worldwide. With this in mind, researchers from the University of Alabama (UA) looked at whether amino acid supplementation can help ameliorate this muscle loss. Even among healthy adults, skeletal muscle mass decreases by as much as two percent each year after … Continue reading Study suggests these nutrients can improve lean body mass in older adults

Here’s the strongest proof yet that vitamin D stops covid in its tracks

Israeli scientists say they have collected the most convincing evidence yet that vitamin D is a powerfully effective remedy for the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19). Researchers from Bar Ilan University and the Galilee Medical Center say that vitamin D is so effective at preventing serious illness or death that it can now be predicted how a person will fare based … Continue reading Here’s the strongest proof yet that vitamin D stops covid in its tracks

Vitamin D found to help reduce COVID-19 risk and severity

Since the outbreak of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, several articles have discussed the potential of vitamin D to reduce the risk and severity of the disease. A team of researchers from Hospital del Mar in Barcelona, Spain, closely monitored a total of 930 coronavirus disease patients – 551 of whom were randomly assigned to receive vitamin D along with … Continue reading Vitamin D found to help reduce COVID-19 risk and severity

How zinc can boost your immune health

Zinc is essential for the normal development and function of your immune system, as it protects against susceptibility to pathogens, mediates natural killer cells, activates T-lymphocytes, regulates macrophages, and is central to DNA replication. (Article by Joseph Mercola republished from TheEpochTimes.com) You have at least 300 enzymes that require zinc to function normally. Evidence shows zinc helps … Continue reading How zinc can boost your immune health

Study finds “supertasters” may have some innate immunity against the coronavirus

One of the many mysteries of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) that baffle researchers is why it affects some people more severely than others. But a recent study found that supertasters – people who experience a greater-than-average intensity of bitter taste – are less likely to develop severe COVID-19 than normal tasters and non-tasters. This may be due … Continue reading Study finds “supertasters” may have some innate immunity against the coronavirus

Study: Recovering from a coronavirus infection gives you lifelong antibody protection… but authorities refuse to recognize natural immunity

People who recover from mild cases of COVID-19 develop antibodies that may protect them from the Wuhan coronavirus, say researchers at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis (WUSTL). In their report, which was published in Nature, the team noted that these immune cells can persist for a lifetime as they continue to produce antibodies. This … Continue reading Study: Recovering from a coronavirus infection gives you lifelong antibody protection… but authorities refuse to recognize natural immunity
