Really?
Well... in his / her defense ( I don't know who )
I never get the flu vaccine. My wife just loves that. Ha.

I've not been sick in... quite a few years. Pneumonia x2 about 15 years ago.
there are 12 diseases that vaccines have cured, the flu isn't one of them...as of today there still isn't a vaccine for hiv/aids.

getting a flu shot greatly helps in not getting the flu but from year to year effectiveness varies. I have gotten a flu shot for the last 12 years including this last year and will continue to get one yearly...I highly recommend getting a pneumonia shot, they are good for 7 years and are very effective.

Yep, but there's a difference between not getting a flu shot and believing vaccines are some sort of government conspiracy. I also usually don't get a flu shot unless I happen to be at a doctor's office for some other reason, so it's just out of laziness or I simply don't think about it.

I’m not gonna get involved in the politics here but the reality is nobody here can just go buy HCQ anyway so it’s kind of a moot point whose right/wrong.

Back to the subject of immunity. I’ve read a couple of interesting things like:

1. Overweight people seem to get hit hard by this
2. Diabetes is the worst comorbidity with this
3. Seen at least 3 GDA’s have antiviral properties in research - oxymatrine, Ecklonia, berberine

If the 3 ingredients above share nothing in common (not related so to speak), is it plausible that optimising glucose tolerance could be the thing we should focus on most?
Ok,

so trying to take this all in (and no I’m not a newbie just bare with me).

1. Yep yep
2. Seems to be (looks also linked to social status where obesity is higher)
3. Sceptical... really? Can you go further into how you’ve come to the conclusion that these relatively unknown ingredients used as GDA’s have proven to be anti-viral?

why would we focus on glucose tolerance when fighting a disease like this?

What are your guys' opinions on Vitamin A? I have been taking 8000 iu lately. I started this for immune support.

Is it safe to take Vitamin A long term? I was speaking to my mothers doctor about supplementation, and he said Vitamin A could cause cancer....
I suppose that almost anything 'could' cause cancer but it sounds like he read an outdated headline and rolled with it haha.

I take Vitamin A daily per doctors instructions and have for years.

But will it actually make a difference or is it all just hopes and prayers? I have yet to see a definitive answer. I use Epicor year round, and believe it helps. Anecdotally it has prevented me from catching colds from coworkers while working(construction) in close proximity. Covid-19 has shown to be extremely contagious though. Is there any reason I should believe boosting my immune system will stop it in its tracks?
MIT DR says that fraudman fauci is lying and that the best way to stop this **** is to strengthen the immune system. i posted the video in the anabolics section this morning.

I was reading on those three ingredients as I came across them on this article


Tbh, that was a while back and I think by now the whole world must know that this disease is a joke. I now don’t even care less about boosting immunity, getting chloroquine etc etc.

bottom line - unless you’re fat, old or got comorbidities, this is nothing for anyone on this forum to worry about. Anyone who thinks otherwise should explain why no professional athletes who have caught this have gotten even hospitalised let alone dead.

Just like you I have been doing research on how I can keep myself as fit as possible during these times and what I can do to try and combat the Virus. I can't comment much on the anti-viral aspects of the GDA as research links do this a lot better than I could. But there is a lot of research on why we should focus on glucose tolerance when fighting this disease. Stan Efferding posted a very interesting article which explains why obesity is a major risk factor for Covid-19 hospital admission.

Did you have any luck in finding out which specific ingredients were proven to be anti-viral? As I saw that Predator had a well rated GDA which had berberine in, which I think was one of the ingredients with research behind it.

Hmmmm....as far as the GDA's, I still think they may be a long shot but there's these:

https://advances.sciencemag.org/content/6/16/eaaz7086

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6637495/

https://biology.uncg.edu/adamson-lab/research/link-between-influenza-a-virus-infection-and-glucose-metabolism/ (sorry for the abstract)

https://www.pnas.org/content/pnas/115/30/E7158.full.pdf

Just thought it was interesting. Obviously none of it is Covid-specific, but given the fact that diebetics and the obese are showing to be a high-risk group, this makes some sense.

I just came across another one that I thought was interesting:

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0022202X15325136

It seems that DHEA dampens cytokine response - it appears to have something to do with its conversion to estrogen. I know relatively little about this, so I'm not sure - but it seems this may be part of the reason men get hit harder than women with Covid?? Who knows?
