Allergist-immunologist Vladimir Bolibok said that to reduce the risks of a severe course of COVID-19, it is necessary to take vitamins C and D daily.
Commenting on a study by Italian scientists, according to which a “cocktail” of vitamins C and D, together with melatonin and zinc, avoids a severe form of the disease, Bolibok made recommendations for taking this healing mixture.
So, according to him, within a month a person should take 50 thousand units of vitamin D after meals. In addition, six to 10 mg of melatonin should be taken daily before bed. It helps the body fight viruses, and vitamins C and D act as antioxidants with anti-inflammatory properties.
In this case, the daily dose of zinc should also not exceed 10 mg.
Among Italians, the key elements in the “vitamin” cocktail, as the expert noted, are precisely melatonin and zinc. However, the doses reflected in the study can harm the body, Bolibok said.
“When you consume an ultra-high dose of vitamin D, thrombosis can occur in the body. In fact, this is vitamin D poisoning, ”the Moscow 24 TV channel quotes the immunologist.
Earlier that day, a member of the scientific and technical committee on coronavirus infection under the regional government of Sicily, professor of medicine Salvatore Corrao, said that vitamins C and D, melatonin and zinc should be taken to reduce the risk of severe COVID-19 disease.
The scientist added that we are talking about the therapeutic use of these substances, which have a variety of effects on the body.
