While many public health strategies have evolved during the last few months in relation to the COVID 19 pandemic, there has been little focus on the immune system and how this could be strengthened to help protect against viral infections such as SARS-CoV-2.
The attached paper evaluates the current evidence base relating to immunonutrition, with a particular focus on respiratory viruses.
Within the nutrition sector a promising body of evidence studying inter-relationships between certain nutrients and immune competence already exists.
This could potentially be an important factor in helping the body to deal with the coronavirus, especially among the over 65’s.
Evidence for vitamins C, D and zinc and their roles in preventing pneumonia and respiratory infections (vitamins C and D) and reinforcing immunity (zinc) appears to look particularly promising.
We hope you find this article of interest and of clinical use in your practice.
Whilst we appreciate that your inboxes are probably overflowing with information and up-dates in respect of COVID 19, we would like to draw your attention to the downloadable article which reviews the roles of vitamin D in reducing the risk of respiratory tract infections, our current knowledge about the epidemiology of influenza and COVID-19, and how vitamin D supplementation might be a useful measure to reduce risk.
Our knowledge regarding COVID 19 is currently constrained by lack of peer-reviewed studies, and it can be difficult to know how to advise patients who want to know how best to support their immune system function at this particular time.
As Vitamin D deficiency is especially prevalent in this region, this article might be of interest to you in your dealings with patients in the coming weeks.
