Zinc copper and vitamin D supplements can increase resistance to Covid infection. ​


​Clinical research supports taking vitamin D and zinc and copper supplements to increase ones resistance to Covid infection. 

Zinc supplements should contain some copper because taking zinc on its own depletes the body of copper and copper deficiency can be associated with anaemia, thyroid gland malfunction, an increased risk of infection and anorexia nervosa. 

A suitable zinc supplement that contains a physiological amount of copper is Jarrow Formulas Zinc Balance. Zinc supplements are most effective when taken at bedtime. 


Testimonial for Jarrow Formulas Zinc Balance

"I was previously taking a higher dose of zinc but it made me tired all the time. This product is perfect. I take it at night and it gives me more restful sleep. Also my skin is better after having taking it for a while. Apparently taking zinc supplements without copper long-term can deplete copper levels. With this product you don't have to worry about that because the right ratio of copper is included."
