Abstract:   (4349 Views)
Coronavirus-disease 19 (COVID-19) has rapidly become a global public health issue, and there is a desperate need for strategies of prevention, reduction, and treatment to halt the epidemic. The coronavirus affects the immune system, and individuals with a compromised immune system, such as those with diabetes, hypertension, obesity, are more susceptible to this virus. Lifestyle-related variables such as physical activity and nutritional supplements can decrease inflammatory markers, increase anti-inflammatory and antioxidant status, and improve the immune system. Lifestyle-related variables play preventive roles against various infectious diseases including COVID-19. This review highlights the effects of physical activity and nutrients supplements on the immune system and their possible benefits in combating the harms caused by infection with the COVID-19 virus.

  • There are currently no approved drugs to treat COVID-19. The drugs available for COVID-19 primarily act as a protease. Herbal medicines and supplements studied in this study can act as COVID-19 inhibitors through anti-inflammatory, Antioxidants effects, as well as boosting the immune system. However, further research on the dosage and other possible uses of these supplements is necessary for patients with COVID-19.
