Zinc may be just the 24th most abundant element on our planet, but we're entirely codependent on it for our physiological function. Among its many roles, including in wound healing, facilitating the production of antioxidants (e.g. superoxide dismutase or SOD) that mop up free radicals and liver function, one if its most important is to support many different aspects of the immune system.

It turns out, many of us are now deficient in zinc, with deficiency having more serious consequences for our immune system, the older we get.

Over the last few months we've learned that those who are deficient in zinc are at much higher risk of developing severe covid-19 disease.

The Frontline COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC) were among the first frontline doctors to include zinc in its MATH+ protocol, with great success.

One drug that was trialled with some success (despite some media reports to the contrary), hydroxychloroquine, owes some of its effectiveness to its role as a zinc ionophore that helps force zinc into cells where it can exert its many modes of action in supporting our recovery from respiratory infections. There is now good evidence for the use of Ivermectin, an anti-helminth, as a prophylatic and treatment for covid-19 disease with the National Institutes for Health (NIH) having just green-lighted its use.
