Coronavirus Update 59: Dr. Roger Seheult's Daily Regimen (Vitamin D, C, Zinc, Quercetin, NAC)

COVID-19 Update 59 with Roger Seheult, MD of

We recorded this video in response to your comments asking what Dr. Seheult's daily regimen is - to optimize his immune system and minimize COVID-19 risk. In the absence of good clinical data that is specific to SARS-CoV-2, Dr. Seheult discusses supplements, sleep, and his daily disinfection routine when removing PPE, getting in his car, and returning home from the hospital. We look forward to more randomized, blinded, placebo-control studies in the future that will build upon the current body of evidence as it relates to immunity and specifically coronaviruses such as SARS-CoV-2.

Vitamin C and Zinc Studies Report - COVID Update

Vitamin C and Zinc Studies Report - COVID Update

Welcome to another COVID Update, based on a recent study that gave vitamin C and Zinc for mild COVID illness. Zinc gluconate and vitamin C, aka ascorbic acid, are commonly available over-the-counter supplements that people often take to treat viral illnesses. Zinc is known to play a role in our immune function by helping to produce antibodies, in addition to enhancing our white blood cell's ability to fight infection, especially when it comes to neutrophils, a type of white blood cell. There is also some evidence that zinc deficiency increases pro-inflammatory cytokines.

---------------------------------------------
Doctor Mike Hansen's Programs ⏩

FREE Course for MORE ENERGY:

---------------------------------------------

Studies on the first SARS virus have shown that zinc might inhibit its ribonucleic acid polymerase, which allows the virus to replicate its RNA. But the biological activity of zinc against viruses may require ionophores like Pyrithione to accomplish this. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that may play a role in our immune system’s ability to fight infection. In vitro and in vivo studies in chicks have shown that they could be protective against coronavirus. Human trials have found that it may decrease susceptibility to viral respiratory infections. When it comes to the common cold, there is limited evidence to suggest that high doses of oral vitamin C and zinc might reduce the duration of symptoms and decrease the severity of symptoms.

But what does that mean for zinc in real life?
Based on a review of 13 studies, if zinc is taken within 24 hours of the first signs of a cold, it might reduce a mean length by a day. And with vitamin C, some research suggests that it can shorten colds by 8% in adults and 14% in kids, but it doesn't appear helpful if taken after the symptoms start. Vitamin C in the INTRAVENOUS form has also been looked at for non-COVID patients is variable. A meta-analysis review investigated its use in critically ill patients. It failed to show a significant association with mortality but inconsistent associations with secondary endpoints, including duration of patients requiring a breathing tube with a ventilator and length of stay in the hospital.

But what about zinc and vitamin C for the treatment of COVID?
The COVID A to Z study was a prospective randomized clinical open-label trial at multiple hospitals within a single health system, involving sites in Ohio and Florida. Enrolled participants remained in their own home settings, and all study visits and/or procedures were conducted virtually via telephone, email, computer, or laptop. So we are not talking about hospitalized COVID patients. We're talking about patients with mild, perhaps moderate, illness here. A total of 214 patients were randomized, 132 women, 82 men, and 45.

Patients were randomized in a 1:1:1:1 ratio, meaning 1/4th received vitamin C, 1/4th received zinc, 1/4th received both vitamin C and zinc, and 1/4th received neither, just standard of care, which is nothing more than rest, hydration, and maybe some Tylenol or ibuprofen, but no supplements. The vitamin C group received 10 days of 8,000 mg vitamin C after being diagnosed with COVID based on PCR testing. The zinc group received 50 mg of zinc gluconate at bedtime. The zinc and vitamin C group received 8,000 mg of vitamin C and 50 mg of zinc.

So we are talking big doses here, much more than what most people take. Patients then tracked their symptoms daily, including potential side effects from vitamin c and zinc. During the course of the study, patients admitted to the hospital were considered treatment failures and were no longer required to continue study supplementation or track their daily symptoms. The trial's primary endpoint was the number of days required to reach a 50% reduction in symptom severity from the peak symptom score. Secondary endpoints were the number of days required to get a total symptom severity score of 0, cumulative severity score at day 5, hospitalizations, deaths, adjunctive prescribed medications, and adverse effects of vitamin C and Zinc.

Does Supplemental Vitamin D Help Prevent Covid-19?

Ah, Vitamin D, back again. We’ve made our case on how unnecessary Vitamin D supplements are for outcomes like diabetes, cardiovascular and musculoskeletal health, and overall mortality. But what about its effect on viral infections like Covid-19? Can it reduce symptom severity, or perhaps even reduce your odds of becoming infected in the first place?

What is Monoclonal Antibody Therapy?

Patients recently diagnosed with COVID-19 now have a treatment option that may help speed up their recovery process and lower their chances of being admitted to the hospital.

Monoclonal Antibody Therapy is an investigational approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to treat COVID-19 pediatric and adult patients experiencing mild to moderate symptoms.

In this video, Augusta University Health‘s Chief Medical Officer Dr. Phillip Coule shares what you need to know about Monoclonal Antibody Therapy and more important facts about the coronavirus.

Could Vitamin D Help Fight COVID-19?

My opinion is that you keep the correct levels of vitamin D in your body. Now a days, due to staying indoors, it is possible that you will develop the deficiency of vitamin D. Get this checked by your doctor and use the correct dose to stay healthy.

Here are my notes:
Daily 10 microgram or 400 IU/Day

Lippincott’s Biochemistry Review 4th Edition. Page 388
Daily 5 mg of cholecalciferol or 200 IU of Vitamin D.

However, 800 IU/Day is shown to reduce the incidence of osteoporotic fractures.
800 IU/Day recommended by the Institute of Medicine to maintain bone health.

Frank deficiency is when the levels of 25-hydroxycholecalciferol (25OHD) is less than 20 ng/mL (50 mmol/L)


No consensus that the oral vitamin D supplements are helpful

Ergocalciferol from plants is called Vitamin D2
Cholecalciferol from the animal tissue is called Vitamin D3

7 deidro-cholesterol to (UV light) to cholecalciferol (D3) to 25 hydroxylase in liver to 25 OH D to -hydroxycholecalciferol 1-hydroxylase in kidney to 1,25 DiOH D3




Vitamin D Receptors are abbreviated to VDR in the notes. These are cytosolic receptors.


Deficiency of vitamin D makes people more susceptible to respiratory tract infections.
Vitamin D supplement can reduce these infections by 12%
Keep in mind, this is for those who are deficient in this vitamin. If you are not deficient, then it will not make a difference. Because, you are already good.
Evidence is not sufficient to say that vitamin D helps prevent respiratory infections.

2018 Study

People with autoimmune diseases commonly have hypovitaminosis D

What are cathelicidins?


What are beta defensins?



2011 Study


Activation of TLR and PAMPs on macrophages increases the production of 1, alpha hydroxylase and the VDR. This in turn causes more production of cathelicidine and beta defensins 4.

Vitamin D also affects monocytes to reduce production of IL1, IL6, IL8, IL12, and TNF. Regulating the immune response.

Vitamin D acts on the dendritic cells to inhibit/reduce their differentiation and maturation. It reduces their MHCII expression, co-stimulatory molecules like CD40, CD80, CD86, decreased production of IL-12 etc.

2013 Study

Vitamin D improves immune system by helping produce cathelicidine and by helping modulate inflammatory cascade. Especially for the respiratory infections.
It also helps produce NFk-B (nuclear factor kappa light chain for activated B cells.)

(
Notes about the NFkB

Helps with cytokine production and cell survival.
NFk-B factor becomes active when T and B cell receptors become active. Its activation causes the gene expressions that allow T cell development, maturation, and proliferation.
T and B cells have Vitamin D receptors that help them produce NFk-B
)

Continuing the notes from the study:
In pulmonary infections. Lung epithelial cells are able to convert inactive vitamin D to its active form. This active Vitamin D then helps produce cathelicidine. Which helps kill the pathogens.

Vitamin D seems to favor TH2 and TH17 cell activation which is anti-inflammatory profile.
Vitamin D seems to reduce the activation of TH1 cells which are pro inflammatory by their IFN-gamma action.
A deficiency of vitamin D may dysregulate the inflammatory response of the body.

Vitamin B also increases the IkBa. This leads to inhibition of NFkB. This helps reduce the production of IL6 and IL8 by inhibiting the production of NFkB. ...

Daily vitamins and supplements, can it fend off COVID-19?

Do vitamins help fight coronavirus? Since the start of the pandemic, we’ve heard many different answer from many different sources.

COVID patient talks about receiving monoclonal antibody infusion treatment

Dr. Matthew Brams contracted COVID last December before the vaccine was made available. He received the treatment and was able to avoid the hospital.

STORY:

Some patients in Washington struggle to find COVID-19 antibody treatment

Monoclonal antibodies can prevent severe illness and hospitalization. Federal health officials earlier this year said this treatment is underutilized.
