Let’s talk about the symptoms of long COVID and the natural things you can do if you experience these issues.
Post-COVID-19 symptoms can include:
• Decreased attention
• Memory problems
• Shortness of breath
• Distortion of smell
• Muscle weakness
• Brain fog
• Post-exercise issues
Post-COVID symptoms are often worsened by both mental and physical stress.
Growing evidence shows that this problem is strongly associated with an alteration in the vitamin D genes.
If someone has a predisposition to a vitamin D deficiency, they may experience more COVID symptoms and have a higher risk of symptoms long after the original infection.
Vitamin D is the most essential vitamin to support the immune system, and vitamin D deficiencies increase the risk of viruses.
Many different things can decrease your absorption of vitamin D, and getting plenty of sun or taking a vitamin D supplement is crucial.
Vitamin D also controls folate, and a lack of folate is associated with the severity and duration of symptoms from the COVID-19 virus as well.
There are a few things you can try to increase your vitamin D, including:
• Vitamin D3 supplements (minimally 10,000 IU per day)
• Topical vitamin D (nanoemulsion technology)
• Semi-activated vitamin D
• Light therapy
Additional things you can do to help increase the effectiveness of the above options include:
1. Taking vitamin D3 irregularly
• You might take 50,000 IU of vitamin D3, then wait a few days, and take 20,000 IU of vitamin D3
2. Take the co-factors for vitamin D3, including:
• Vitamin K2
3. Do intense exercise
4. Increase butyrate by consuming salad or vegetables
5. Consume sulforaphane (broccoli sprouts or other sprouts)
6. Consume omega-3 fatty acids (fish oil or cod liver oil)
Vitamin B1 (thiamine) and vitamin B3 may also be involved in long COVID. It’s important not to neglect B vitamins in your diet.
Consuming refined carbs, stress, or antibiotics can deplete vitamin B1. The ketogenic diet can also increase the demand for B vitamins.
You may want to take nutritional yeast or a natural B1 complex along with vitamin D3 to help support your body and overcome symptoms of long COVID.
