We at Frunutta feel that regardless of how helpless we may feel in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic we must remember that sooner or later it will be over and we must do our best to keep ourselves and our community as healthy as possible.
The obvious advice is to wash our hands, avoid contact with others, heat our food to kill the virus (which survives better in the cold), and get a good night sleep.
Melatonin benefits and dosage!
We realize that a goodnights sleep is usually easier said than done, so supplementing with Melatonin is a great way to ease your body to sleep and avoid restless nights. A healthy immune system needs a healthy sleep schedule. In adults the safe range of melatonin is around 1 to 10mg and anything near 30 mg can cause overdose. Overdose is rare but can have health risks so stick to the standard dosing in 24 hours.
Vitamin D3 benefits and dosage!
Vitamin D3 is also a great supplement to take because during this pandemic, we are encouraged to remain indoors and out of sunlight. The standard dosage for Vitamin D3 is around 600 to 800iu daily but while many people are taking multivitamins or the standard dose the level of low vitamin D3 levels in the general public is high. Hence some doctors are recommending high levels of vitamin D3 at 1000iu to 5000iu daily specially to boost the immune response during this pandemic. These levels are extremely unlikely to cause vitamin D3 toxicity in adults.
Vitamin C benefits and dosage!
While we are quarantined to our homes it is likely we are consuming more canned or processed meals than usual. It is important to supplement with vitamins to get nutrients that we aren’t getting from our food. Vitamin C 1000mg daily has shown in some studies to help decrease rate and duration of viral colds. It is always important to hydrate along with Vitamin C intake. Side effects from too much vitamin C are rare but some studies have shown nausea and vomiting from taking vitamin C at 2000mg daily on a continuous basis and possibly produce calcium oxalate renal stones in susceptible individuals.
Zinc benefits and dosage!
Based on anectodical reports, it could be beneficial to take Zinc at dosages of 15mg daily to improve our chance of fighting off the virus. Some studies show that zinc & vitamin C have a synergistic effect on the immune response lower both the duration and the chance of a viral cold, which are part of the coronavirus family. It is believed that the upper limit of daily intake of zinc for adults is at 40mg/day. We want to keep our zinc intake to around 15 to 20mg daily preferably in divided doses. Zinc at 50mg/day dosage has been known to cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and a lowered immune response.
GABA benefits and dosage!
All the stress from the media, panicked friends and worrying about family can become very overwhelming. GABA can be just the thing you need to relax the mind and improve your mood. GABA is a natural amino acid found in our body and is believed to have a calming effect by reducing the overall excitation in our brain or possibly the external nervous system and may just be the natural relaxant that we need during these hard times. It is extremely hard to overdose on Frunutta GABA at our dosage recommendations.
