On the subject Panzironi, who is not a physician, but a journalist, had already intervened on the tv Video Lazio 24. She explained that those at risk of getting sick, in addition to the elderly, are those who “in the last few years have been operated and to which were removed the adenoids and tonsils". But in this days there are many fake news that are circulating on the theme. The “guru” of Life 120 is not the only one to sponsor the use of dietary supplements and in the network is increased the sale of products against the coronavirus on the basis of turmeric, vitamin C, fermented papaya or oregano oil. So much so that Altroconsumo has launched an appeal to the citizens, pointing out that it is of remedies without effect; while the Guardia di Finanza has seized also a dietary supplement sells for 29 euros on eBay and advertised as a "Security Coronavirus - Strengthens immune system". No supplement protects you from Covid-19 To see things clearly, as always, the word must be given to the doctors. “As you can tell already from their name - clear Walter Marrocco , president of the Italian Society of medicine of prevention and lifestyles (SIMPeSv) - these products complement and not a substitute for drugs. But above all it must be clarified that there is no supplement that can prevent the Coronavirus”. Notes the missed dose Claudio Cricelli , president of the Italian Society of General Medicine: “We who belong to the world of medicine we are obliged to follow the scientific method which is based on the tests. Regarding this virus, there is no evidence of substances that are not interactions that are active against it. Neither foods nor dietary supplements can have an effectiveness, and those who say otherwise must bring the scientific evidence”.
How to strengthen the immune system Coronavirus in part, the strengthening of the immune system should be a goal for all to have a body strong and able to face any diseases. Vitamins? “Vitamin C and D, as well as minerals such as zinc, magnesium and selenium - continued Government - they can give a hand to the immune system but not enough to make us avoid a viral infection type of Coronavirus, therefore, the indiscriminate use is not justified from the scientific point of view nor as a prevention or as a therapy against the virus. Indeed, an excess of vitamin D or other micro-elements can be harmful and toxic, for this better no do it yourself but best to contact your doctor who knows the right dosage”.
The resources of our organism, In fact, sometimes we should let it do to our body: “Taking supplements is not needed, as no one has yet found a really effective method to stimulate the immune system,” warns Cricelli. The system is given by the host immune response spontaneous that occurs when we come into contact with the virus itself that attacks us: it is then that the body pulls out his weapons to react”. The problem is that with age our immune system becomes more fragile, and in fact, it speaks of immuno-senescence and it is in these cases that may be useful to use of supplements, but always on the advice of a doctor. “To give a hand to our body in the fight against the virus in general,” says Marrocco, “it is more correct to speak of the style of life that includes our mediterranean diet, but also physical activity. Should be avoided, instead, the changes in temperature and stress in general, because the immune system tend to be less efficient in these conditions. Finally, that the vaccinations are important to protect us in general and be protected from other diseases”.
