Coronavirus: Strengthen Your Immune System Now!

Coronavirus: Strengthen Your Immune System Now!

I am sending a lot of information out at the moment about ways to effectively strengthen your immune system to fight COVID-19

My colleague Professor Llewellyn, one of the pioneers of Foodstate Nutrition, has recently been commissioned by Chinese hospitals to create a complete immune system protocol to help fight the pandemic.

He has reviewed and vetted the suggestions I am making, so at the risk of repeating myself, I am sending out the information again, albeit with an addition of our Probiotic, another important contributor to a robust immune system

Support Your Immune System With Nutrition: The most likely effect to those people who succumb to it are mild flu symptoms and a dry cough. Some people will experience none or very little discomfort, most will suffer typical flu symptoms for a number of days and in extreme cases (so far, almost exclusively affecting the aged), it can cause death. The following nutrients have anti-viral properties:



  1. Selenium: An essential micro-nutrient

  • Selenium is essential to the proper function of the immune system and boosts our defences and resistance to infection

  • It improves male fertility and prevents miscarriage

  • Low levels are associated with depression and other mental disorders 

  • High levels help prevent cancer. 

  • Deficient levels in the diet may even have played a role in the emergence of new strains of the flu virus in China and the crossing of the HIV virus from animals to man in Central Africa

It is a sad fact that Selenium is virtually non-existent in our farm soils today, and the health consequences are significant. Ordinary Selenium supplements have toxicity concerns and are not as effective as Foodstate Selenium




  1. Vitamin C: Research is demonstrating that IV ascorbic acid (synthetic Vitamin C) is proving effective in treating those who contract pneumonia from Coronavirus. Ascorbic acid is given intravenously in high dose because it causes intestinal pain when taken orally.

    This doesn’t happen with Foodstate Vitamin C which is superior in every way, and we can take high dosages without any discomfort. How does it help?

    Vitamin C is water-soluble so we don’t store it, and as such we need regular replenishment. It is a potent antioxidant which:

  • Supports the immune system

  • Improves the outcome of patients with Sepsis and Respiratory Infections

  • Supports the structure of connective tissue

  • Supports the structure of blood vessels

  • Supports the structure of healthy bones

  • Supports healthy skin

  • Supports healthy teeth and gums



  1. Zinc: Zinc can lower mortality rate in older people 

  • This powerful antioxidant mineral helps to treat the common cold, flu, and helps prevent bacterial and viral diseases



  1. Beta-Glucans 1,3 and 1,6: A potent Antioxidant with significant anti-viral properties

    Beta-Glucans are a specialised antioxidant nutrient with a unique quality to help fight viruses. Beta-Glucans 1,3 and 1,6 help activate the immune system, alerting the body to help defend itself against viral and bacterial invaders. Many healthcare Practitioners use them to help boost patients’ immunity and fight disease 

    How do they work?

    Flu viruses “bind complement”, which means they stop the part of the immune system that responds to fight viruses - called “complement” - from working. Beta-Glucans actively and specifically inhibit this binding effect and so ensure activation of the immune system in response to the viral invader. Infection from most viruses takes about 48 hours after the virus has entered the body, (but we are being advised that it’s a longer incubation period with the Coronavirus). If the immune system is activated it will prevent the virus from replicating, so effectively the flu symptoms will not start


  1. Vitamin D: This important mineral helps reduce pandemic mortality rates in the elderly. It is particularly relevant to people to have worse reaction to the virus with more serious breathing difficulties and pneumonia. Vitamin D protects the lungs

  • Vitamin D is important for controlling infections so it’s only logical that it reduces your risk of contracting flu and common colds

  • High-dose Vitamin D lowers the risk of respiratory illness and lung infection

    The first conclusive evidence of the importance of Vitamin D was during the Spanish Flu outbreak, when fatality rates increased in winter and reduced in summer


  1. Probiotic E505: A month’s course of our E505 probiotic bacteria can have a profound effect upon the digestive system, immune system and elimination processes in the body. They assist the immune system by ensuring efficient digestion of food and promoting the effective movement of food through the colon and therefore proper elimination.  This is important for clearing the body of toxins and therefore vital for maintaining health and well-being.

    Beneficial probiotic bacteria help improve digestive conditions that include:

  • Preventing infection from flu viruses

  • Reducing inflammation 

  • Reducing acidity, constipation, diarrhoea, gastroenteritis, IBS, allergies and obesity

  • Lowering Cholesterol levels

  • Helping prevent urinary tract infections



What To Do Next: In reality, all of the nutrients mentioned above are important for maintaining your health anyway, but are of particular importance right now. If you are in fear of contracting Coronavirus, start taking 1 capsule/tablet of each twice per day and 1 heaped teaspoon of probiotic. If you live in an area where an outbreak occurs, you may want to increase to 4 of each per day.
