Melatonin is a Key Recommendation in COVID-19
There are a number of important nutritional considerations in both the prevention and treatment of COVID-19. There is one that really stands out to me that has not received the same sort of promotion as others like vitamin D and zinc. The title of this newsletter gives it away. I am referring to melatonin as a critical supplement in the battle against this virus. It makes sense, melatonin exerts significant immune enhancing effects and patients at highest risk, e.g., the elderly and those with high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and various other chronic diseases are all associated with melatonin deficiency. Preliminary evidence discussed in this newsletter will highlight the use of melatonin as safe and potentially valuable in the prevention and treatment of COVID-19.
