Important publications on COVID-19

Publication | 2020

The COVID-19 epidemic is multifactorial but diet has not been sufficiently considered in severity. Geographic differences in COVID-19 mortality suggest the importance of diet. Clinical studies in three patients have contributed to developing a proof-of-concept for the hypothesis that combined Nrf2-TRPA1 foods may be beneficial for some COVID-19 symptoms.

    1. Rapid TRP (transient receptor potential) desensitization in COVID-19: fact or fancy?

A common denominator in all conditions associated with COVID-19 appears to be the oxidative stress storm. Antioxidant nutrients may be of importance in COVID-19 through Nrf2 activation. TRP (Transient Receptor Potential) desensitization has been suggested in 6 COVID-19 patients since broccoli capsules (potent Nrf2 and weak TRPA1 agonist) reduced cough and nasal obstruction within 10-20 minutes. A series of cough induced challenges were carried out in one COVI-19 patient. Curcuma and black pepper, ginger or green tea all improved cough and nasal obstruction in less than 2 minutes.
