Article: Essential Nutrition to Protect Yourself From Coronavirus


(Mercola) As for prevention, nutrition plays a crucial role and several nutrients are known for their immune-boosting properties and ability to ward against viral infections. As reported in a February 24, 2020 press release:25,26

“In a compelling article27 in Progress in Cardiovascular Diseases … Mark McCarty of the Catalytic Longevity Foundation, San Diego, CA, USA, and James DiNicolantonio, PharmD, a cardiovascular research scientist at Saint Luke’s Mid America Heart Institute, Kansas City, MO, propose that certain nutraceuticals may help provide relief to people infected with encapsulated RNA viruses such as influenza and coronavirus …

COVID-19 is around 30 to 60 times more lethal than the typical annual flu. Both influenza and coronavirus cause an inflammatory storm in the lungs and it is this inflammatory storm that leads to acute respiratory distress, organ failure, and death.

Certain nutraceuticals may help to reduce the inflammation in the lungs from RNA viruses and others may also help boost type 1 interferon response to these viruses, which is the body’s primary way to help create antiviral antibodies to fight off viral infections.”

McCarty and DiNicolantonio list several nutrients available in supplement form that may be of particular benefit against COVID-19, including the following (below). For more details about each, see the full-text paper28 published in Progress in Cardiovascular Diseases:

Recipe: Ginger Sweet Potato Coconut Milk Stew with Lentils & Kale

by The First Mess

This sweet potato and coconut milk stew is a glowing and mellow shade of orange with big, vibrant pops of green from kale and cilantro. We use lots of chili and ginger in this stew, along with a bunch of other spices. You get sweetness, spice, earthy vibes, creaminess, satiating texture from the lentils, and a good squeeze of lime rounds everything out. Rounding it out is key.

Ingredients

1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 medium yellow onion, small dice
½ – 1 teaspoon dried chili flakes
½ teaspoon ground coriander
½ teaspoon ground cumin
½ teaspoon ground turmeric
2-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and minced
3 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
sea salt and ground black pepper, to taste
1 ½ lbs (690 grams or 2 medium) sweet potatoes, peeled and diced into 1-inch pieces
½ cup brown lentils, picked over
4 cups vegetable stock
13.5 oz (400 ml) can full fat coconut milk
1 small bunch of kale, stems removed & leaves chopped (about 4 cups chopped & lightly packed kale)

New! Items For March

Dark Chocolate Covered Almonds – Organic

Imagine! Organic California almonds, grown by family farmers, covered with Fair Trade, organic Dark Chocolate. Just the thing for hiking the John Muir Trail or as a snack after gymnastics.

Nutritional Yeast (Large Flake) – Organic

These flakes are a favorite for adding savory flavor to soups, sauces, gravies, and prepared foods where umami flavor is needed.

Yeast has been an ingredient for baking and fermentation for more than 3000 years.

Nutritional yeast is made from a single-celled organism of fungi called Saccharomyces Cerevisiae. In a controlled environment it is cultured, left to grow, then deactivated, harvested, washed and dried. The deactivation process prevents the yeast from being used as a leavening agent.

Nutritional yeast is a flavor enhancer that offers naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, and micro-nutrients. These large flakes are a bit spicier and have more yeast flavor than other nutritional yeast.

Green Split Pea – Organic

Green peas are believed to be a distant relative of the field pea that was native to the Middle East and Central Asia. Since prehistoric times, dried peas have been consumed and were prized by the ancient civilizations of Egypt, Greece, China and Rome.

Green split peas are not only tasty and simple to cook, but are also a good source of protein, iron and dietary fiber.

Vanilla Powder – Organic

We have brought Organic Vanilla Powder back, despite its high price, as we have gotten so many inquiries. It is considered by some to be a culinary indispensable. It is made by pulverizing the whole dried beans to a fine powder. It is well suited to incorporation into liquid-sensitive mixtures, such as some icings and melted chocolate, where even a small amount of liquid could create a problem. In addition, the flavor of vanilla powder is more intense than that of most extracts and does not dissipate even with prolonged cooking. Vanilla powder will keep well, stored in an opaque, airtight container in a cool, dry place.

Macadamia Nut Butter – Alive & Organic

Made from Hawaiian Macadamia nuts that have just arrived. We invite you to taste their aliveness in this outstanding nut butter.

Macadamia Nuts Whole (Hawaiian) – Alive & Organic
