Avoiding this virus is top in most people’s minds right now.  One of the reasons that COVID-19 virus is so dangerous is that it preferentially attacks those who have inflammation – that is to say, those with chronic diseases such as diabetes, asthma, high blood pressure, etc.  The virus enters our bodies through these inflamed tissues.

COVID-19 Curbside Testing in Sugarland, Texas

Thankfully many businesses have started to open up and things could possibly begin getting back to normal. However, it is also possible that we see another boost in COVID cases because of this.
At Balanced Body functional Medicine, we have test kits available for people to use to protect themselves and others. If you’re going to be out and mingling with other people or even seeing loved ones and you want to be sure you’re not spreading the disease, you can stop by our clinic and take a test.

Top Three Supplements to Protect Yourself from Viruses (Like the Corona Virus)

1.  Xcellent C by Xymogen.

Vitamin C is key for building your immune system. Xcellent CTM is a high-potency vitamin C formula with the addition of 7.5 mg of BioPerine® per capsule. BioPerine, a proprietary black pepper extract, is present to promote absorption and bioavailability of vitamin C.
Vitamin C provides valuable antioxidant protection and is necessary for the production of collagen, an integral component of blood vessels, tendons, ligaments, and bone. This essential water-soluble vitamin is required for the synthesis of neurotransmitters and carnitine as well. Xcellent C contains buffering minerals to help prevent potential stomach upset.

2.  Viracid by OrthoMolecular.

This contains a variety of natural substances that help prevent and treat viral infections.  I take 2 every day to prevent infections.  If I feel a sore throat coming on I will take 2 capsules every 2 hours for one day – that usually knocks out whatever bug is trying to take hold.

Viracid includes a powerful combination of key nutrients and botanical extracts that provide support for immune challenges. Viracid boosts immune defenses by providing nutrients such as L-lysine vitamins A and C, pantothenic acid, B12, and zinc. Viracid includes the synergistic blend of botanical extracts black elderberry, astragalus, echinacea, and andrographis, all of which have been used traditionally for their clinically effective immune- modulating properties.

3.  Vitamin D3 with K2

This is often better absorbed with K2.  I think almost every supplement company makes a form of this.  I always recommend staying with the high quality brands:  Xymogen, Metagenics, OrthoMolecular, Microbiome Labs, etc.
