What vitamins can help in the fight of COVID-19?

Since COVID-19 has cold and flu-like symptoms, Vitamins B, C and D and zinc should  be helpful in boosting your immune system and fighting it in the same way they can help you with a cold or the flu.

Vitamin C

Generally, vitamin C can help you get over  a cold faster or ease your cold symptoms if you were taking it before getting sick. As an antioxidant, vitamin C can help reduce inflammation, lung inflammation is a severe symptom of COVID-19, leading to respiratory distress.

Food high in C: broccoli, brussels sprouts, spinach, cantaloupe, orange, grapefruit, strawberries.

Vitamin D

The main function of vitamin D is to help your body maintain proper levels of calcium and phosphorous, which you can get through exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays, or through supplements and the foods you eat.

Getting the proper does of vitamin D can also protect you from respiratory infections. Vitamin D supplementation has shown to decrease the chance of respiratory tract infections.

Food high in D: salmon, tuna, sardines, fortified cereals/juices, milk, cheese, egg yolks.

B-complex vitamins

Vitamin B6 is essential to maintaining your immune system. Be sure to get enough vitamin B as part of your daily diet .

Food high in B: kidney beans, poultry, meat, milk, eggs, fortified cereals/bread, sunflower seeds.


Zinc helps symptoms of nasal congestion, nasal drainage, sore throat, and cough resolve sooner. Zinc has also been found to help produce and activate T-cells (t-lymphocytes), which trigger the body to respond to infections.

Food high in Zinc: meat, shellfish, legumes, dairy, seed/nuts, eggs, whole grains.

Many Nutritional Supplements Claim to Improve Heart Health!

Over the years, you’ve likely seen more than a few ads for dietary supplements while scrolling through your social media feed; ads that promise some product can help you lose weight, leave you with clearer skin, or even improve your heart health.

But experts say many of these claims are often overblown, or, in some cases, completely false.

When it comes to your heart health, however,I think I found the best supplement for you! Omega Cardioprotector by Thrivous, follow the link below.  I have been using it for months now and feel great and believe it to be the right preventive supplement!  Look into it what could it hurt?

Omega Cardioprotector

Thrivous’s Alpha Neuroprotector

This blog posting is about one of my other favorite mind enhancing supplements from Thrivous which is Alpha Neuroprotector.  This is an advanced supplement to enhance brain and nerve function for better aging. Each capsule rovides the best natural nootropics, including clinical doses of Acetyl L Carnitine, Alpha GPC, Ginkgo Biloba, R Alpha Lipoic Acid, and SerinAid Phosphatidylserine

Acetyl-L-carnitine is one of the main ingredients and is used for a variety of mental disorders including Alzheimer’s disease, age-related memory loss, late-life depression, thinking problems related to alcoholism, thinking problems related to Lyme disease, and thinking problems related to very poor liver function (hepatic encephalopathy). It is also used for withdrawal from alcoholDown syndromebipolar disorderpoor circulation in the brain after a stroke, cataracts, nerve paindue to diabetes, nerve pain due to drugs used in the treatment of AIDS or cancer, nerve pain caused by sciaticafibromyalgia, and facial paralysis. Acetyl-L-carnitine is used for tiredness related to getting older, tiredness related to a disease called multiple sclerosis, a musclewasting disease called amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, high levels of activity in children with the genetic condition fragile-X syndrome, and attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). It is also used for aging skin.

Some men use acetyl-L-carnitine for infertility, symptoms of “male menopause” (low testosterone levels due to aging), and a disease of the penis called Peyronie’s disease.

Acetyl-L-carnitine is given intravenously (by IV) for alcohol withdrawal, nerve pain caused by antiviral drugs used to treat HIVdementia, and reduced blood flow in the brain.

Acetyl-L-carnitine is injected into the muscle for a pain condition called fibromyalgia as well as nerve pain that typically affects the hands and feet(peripheral neuropathy).

But be assured you don’t need to have any of these disorders to benefit from this product with this ingredient and the others.

So if you have very mind intense days or just want to stay sharp give it a try!


Tenacity Arthroprotector

In this posting I am going to review Thrivous’s product Tenacity Arthroprotector.  It can be ordered from Thrivous.com
Tenacity Arthroprotector is Thrivous’s advanced supplement to enhance joint and bone function for better aging. Each bottle provides a month supply (60 capsules) of the best natural geroprotectors, including clinical doses of ApresFlex® Boswellia, S Adenosyl Methionine (SAMe), Turmeric (Curcumin), and Vitamin K MK7.
After using this for about a month my Results are:

This clearly now my number #1 joint pain supplement offering a lot of unique benefits which made it rank as my current best. Only quality ingredients are used. The benefits can directly target the root cause of join pain by providing essential nutrients that may be deficient.

This is a truly effective joint pain supplement that is potent enough to improve overall joint & bone health, and maximize movement to live a more active lifestyle. I found my recovery time and my performance time double during my use of this product. My joints have not felt this good in years after strenuous activity!

Clarity Daily Nootropic https://thrivous.com/products/clarity-daily-nootropic

Clarity Daily Nootropic by Thrivous is the advanced supplement to enhance mental clarity, memory, focus, mood, and brain health.

Ok this stuff kicks butt, let me tell you I decided to put it to the test while being away on a week long training class being tested almost everyday with little time to learn totally new information and it enabled my almost 60 year old brain to kick the butts of people ½ my age!  Let me just put it this way if you believe the proof is in the pudding what do you say to the fact I got 96% the first test, 96% the second test, 98% the third test, and on the final test I got 100%.  Not only did it help me kick butt my memory of the new facts got better as the grueling week of learning went on!!!!  This defiantly gets an A++ from me!

Clarity Daily Nootropic contains the following:

Bacopa Meniere is an herb that may enhance memory and support healthy brain function.

Robiola Roseau is an herb that may enhance focus, mood, and energy.


Vitamin B Complex as bioavailable vitamers may support healthy brain function.

This entry we will look at Thrivous’s Serenity their Nightly Nootropic

I have been using this for the past two weeks and find I get a much more solid sleep and also some very vivid dreams. I wake up feeling a lot more refreshed and some times I have some great stories from the dreams! 😊

Serenity Nightly Nootropic has an open source formula that combines safe and effective natural nootropics in chlorophyll vegan capsules. Listed below are the ingredients and some information on them.  I have been taking just one about 15 minutes before sleep.




L-Theanine is an amino acid analogue found primarily in some plant and fungal species. Supplementation may increase relaxation without sedation, according to multiple peer-reviewed, double-blind, placebo-controlled studies:

See the L-Theanine article at Examine.com for more studies and details.




Magnesium is an essential dietary mineral that may help you relax. It’s in my list of top tier geroprotectors, and it can also function as a nootropic. Magnesium comes in many forms, some of which are more effective than others at promoting calm, improving sleep quality, and increasing focus the next day. Magnesium Oxide is one of the most common forms, but it tends to be less absorbable than some others. Magnesium Citrate is more absorbable, making it a more effective geroprotector. Another absorbable form is Magnesium Glycinate, which is Magnesium reacted with Glycine, an amino acid. This particular form may also function as a nootropic.

With any absorbable form of Magnesium, supplementation may provide a notable decrease to blood pressure in cases of high blood pressure, according to multiple peer-reviewed studies on humans.



Melatonin is a substance found in animals, plants, fungi, and bacteria. Supplementation may promote sleep, according to multiple peer-reviewed, double-blind, placebo-controlled studies:

Supplementation with Melatonin may also improve sleep quality and memory. Evidence for these effects may not be as reliable. See the Melatonin article at Examine.com for more studies and details.


Surge enhance your productivity, energy, and focus

The Thrivous supplement I have used the most so far has been the Surge Acute Nootropic, which is the supplement to enhance productivity, energy, and focus. It contains Caffeine, L Theanine, and Panax Ginseng (Ginsenoside). So far I have been very happy using this as a pre-work out supplement and a pre-long-meeting supplement.

Let’s take a quick look Inside Surge Acute Nootropic, it has an open source formula (read the label all the ingredients are listed there ) that combines safe and effective natural nootropics.

A quick rundown on those ingredients:

Caffeine probably the most widely used nootropic in the world. Many don’t know, however, that the cognitive effects of caffeine may be better, and the side effects of caffeine may be reduced, when you combine caffeine with l-theanine.

L-theanine is an amino acid found in plant and fungal species. Typically, apart from dietary supplements, the only source of l-theanine in the human diet is tea.

Panax Ginseng is a slow-growing perennial plant native to North America and eastern Asia. It is the most well-studied kind of Ginseng. Acute supplementation may provide a subtle increase to focus.

What I have found that I like the most about surge is not only the great energy and get up and go it gives me but also the fact that I did not get the jitters or that restlessness that I have gotten from some other supplements. ( this is because of the use of L- theanine with the caffeine (with in the proper amounts of course))  This in my book is a double win!!!

Get some yourself and let me know your thoughts?!

American Ginseng

Welcome back!  This week I wanted to share a great article on the benefits of ginseng.  American ginseng is a perennial herb and grows wild in deciduous forests of the eastern United States. American ginseng is an erect plant that reaches a height of 0.3 to 0.7 meters and has fusiform roots, greenish-white flowers and red berries. The roots and rhizomes are often branched or forked, and they bring a premium price if they resemble a human form. Wild ginseng once thrived along most of the nation’s eastern seaboard, from Maine to Alabama and west to Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota. American ginseng, was at one time plentiful in all mountainous regions of the United States. However, it was over-harvested in the mid-1970s, and was subsequently defined as an endangered species. Now, only licensed ginseng harvesters are allowed to dig for the wild ginseng root.

Ginseng was one of the earliest marketable herbs harvested in the United States. Wild ginseng was one of Minnesota’s first major exports. In 1860, more than 120 tons of dried ginseng roots were shipped from the Minnesota to China. American ginseng is similar to Asian ginseng, Panax ginseng, L. that grows wild in Northern Manchuria and has been harvested there for thousands of years. Currently, 18 states issue licenses to export it. In Wisconsin and several other states where ginseng is cultivated, a permit is not required to export artificially propagated ginseng.

American ginseng is also commonly cultivated. It is relatively easy to grow. The root takes approximately 5 years to reach harvesting maturity. American ginseng plants are generally started from seeds. Seedlings or roots for transplanting are available commercially but used infrequently. Seeds are planted in the fall and germinate in the spring.
