Is this tied to the issue that generally when we sleep, the immune system is attacking the virus, so melatonin presumably improves sleep?
Is there anything in the article that says that melatonin or ascorbic acid are prophylactic against catching COVID-19 (if you are exposed to it)
I just Googled Allicin and Echinacea and they both seem contraindicated in autoimmunity.
Thank you for the link @Hip and I just read your post there (but have not read that entire thread). I just Googled Allicin and Echinacea and they both seem contraindicated in autoimmunity. In general, I am to stay away from anything that could push my immune system back toward autoimmunity (which is currently in remission). Although, at the same time, I obviously do not want to get COVID-19 !
Before making this assumption, you might want to review some of the 102 references attached to the bottom of the article.It's simply the author's suggestion that melatonin may help.
That's not enough to ward off, or minimize, COVID-19. Read the dosage and timing intervals presented in the article itself for a better protocol.I find it difficult to get to sleep unless I taken melatonin about an hour or two before my bedtime.
Not really, tho that may have some effect. Read the article exerpts I posted above if you're not up to reading the whole article .....Is this tied to the issue that generally when we sleep, the immune system is attacking the virus, so melatonin presumably improves sleep?
Sooooo not a problem, @Sarah94. I'm very grateful to you for it, and would be if it had been posted un Sumerian.Sorry @YippeeKi YOW !! , the link was in English for me!
New article in press...
COVID-19: Melatonin as a potential adjuvant treatment
It was pretty much unavailable to international buyers when I tried to find some a week ago. Doris Loh was suggesting Now Brand and one or two others. I did get some locally in the end. A little goes a long way if you're using it as a preventive measure rather than a treatment.
