How Moondust got involved
A Public Health Agency of Canada call to science and tech companies to contribute info on any of their products that may be useful in combatting COVID-19 led to Dr. Moondust to her deeper research on SARSCoV2.

- While it is easy to get zinc into your system, zinc deficiency may be present in 17% of the world’s population!
- Mentioned in previous blogs and videos, Vitamin D continues to be a rock star supplement effective in preventing some elements of inflammation and increase anti-inflammatory activity in your body. This can help to reduce some of the lung damage associated with the virus, if you are exposed.
- Vitamin D deficiency is a world-wide problem, but is particularly pronounced in the elderly, who are at risk of contracting severe COVID-19 infection. This deficiency has been correlated with COVID-19 cases and an increased risk of mortality in a large European study and in a number of other recent studies
- We all know by now that this vitamin is an essential anti-oxidant that even reduces free radical damage from our everyday breathing. It also plays a role in physiological reactions such as hormone production, collagen synthesis and immune potentiation.
- Eating vitamin C-rich foods is connected to controlling the level of oxidative DNA damage and it is also a known anti-viral agent that has been demonstrated to show anti-viral immune responses especially against influenza virus at the onset of infection.
- In some cases it may reduce respiratory infections from happening or dragging on. For some this means less time in a hospital or even on a ventilator. Vitamin C deficiency has been observed in many respiratory infections in patients worldwide.
