Just when you thought it was safe to take supplements again

You simply cannot make this up.  The University of Montreal reviewed 26 studies and found that taking “immune boosting supplements such as vitamin C, vitamin D and zinc do not lessen your chances of dying from COVID-19”. Who pays for this kind of ridiculous research?  Don’t they have better things to do with their time?

First, understand that researchers have confirmed that those who suffer from COVID-19 are deficient in each of the nutrients listed.




You may note that those deficient in Zinc “developed more complications, and the deficiency was associated with a prolonged hospital stay and increased mortality.”  The other papers state that using a nutrient that one was deficient in may be a good thing!  WHY NOT?  Not one of these papers concluded that reversing the nutrient deficiency cured COVID-19, so where does this nonsense come from?

Second, please be careful out there!  Such papers are published for a reason.  I’ll never forget in 1993 when the FDA commissioner, David Kessler stated “Steps are necessary to ensure that the existence of dietary supplements on the market does not act as a disincentive for drug development.” Now perhaps you better understand that medical history repeats itself over and over again thereby hoping to incentivize prescription drug taking over supplements.
I believe that sometimes drugs can be lifesaving….and so can supplements!  Be honest with your doctor and tell him/her where your true interests lie when it comes to swallowing pills.
