1. VITAMIN D3 5000-10,000 UNITS DAILY.
Vitamin D3 is a fat soluble vitamin that is essential for bodily functions including maintaining a healthy immune system. Vitamin D3 is sometimes referred to as "The Sunshine Vitamin" because our bodies can make this vitamin when exposed to sunlight. In fact, it is this exposure to sunlight which is thought to account for a lower prevalence of overall viral infections in tropical and sub-tropical climates. Most people in the modern world do not spend enough time outside to make a healthy amount of vitamin D3. Also, darker skinned individuals tend to be more vitamin D3 deficient as the darker skin makes it more difficult to make Vitamin D3. A healthy vitamin D3 level in your blood is at least 40 ng/ml, but between 60-80mg/ml would be better.  Taking Vitamin D3 with magnesium and vitamin K2 (see below) is the optimal combination for maximizing the effect of Vitamin D3.

THE IMPORTANCE OF VITAMIN D3 AND COVID-19 (2 MINUTES).

IS TAKING 10,000 UNITS OF VITAMIN D3 SAFE? (6 MINUTES)

2. MAGNESIUM OXIDE 400 MG DAILY.
According to Dr. Joseph Mercola in his book The Truth About COVID-19, people who take vitamin D3 without adequate magnesium levels will typically need 146% more Vitamin D3 to achieve healthy vitamin D3 levels. Magnesium has multiple other beneficial benefits such as enhancing brain function, optimizing muscle function, lowering blood pressure, and decreasing inflammation among others. (Reference Here) 
3. VITAMIN K2 100 MCG (MICROGRAMS) DAILY
Vitamin K is actually a group of compounds and not a single substance. The main components of Vitamin K are K1 and K2. Vitamin K2 potentiates the beneficial effects of Vitamin D3. In fact, without Vitamin K2, you will need 244% more Vitamin D for the same therapeutic effect. (Reference Here)

VITAMIN D3 AND K2 
(3 MINUTES)

4. VITAMIN C 2000 mg (liposomal) daily.
When taking Vitamin C, it's important to take it in a highly absorbable form. We recommend taking liposomal Vitamin C which is the vitamin wrapped in a fat molecule. This allows for greater absorption into the cells which is where Vitamin C exerts its influence. Most non-liposomal Vitamin C is expelled from the body by urination. Vitamin C has long been known for it's anti-inflammatory  and immuno-modulating effects. A scientific literature search suggests that Vitamin C may reduce mortality and ICU stays of patients sick with COVID-19 as well as other respiratory infections. Five controlled trials found significant effects of Vitamin C against pneumonia.

5. QUERCETIN 250 MG DAILY.
Quercetin is the pigment found in many plant based foods such as cherries, kale, tomatoes, and broccoli.  It has been shown to be protective against the  first SARS outbreak in 2003.  It has also  been shown to interefere with the COVID-19 spike protein's interaction with the human cell as well as exhibiting direct antiviral activity.   If you are on Hydroxychloroquine, you do not need to take Quercetin.  Use caution if you have hypothyroidism.

6.  Zinc Sulfate 30-50 MG DAILY.
Zinc is an essential mineral involved in a variety of bodily and cellular functions  including inhibiting viral replication, and in regulating the immune system. It has been shown to decrease the length and severity of common colds caused by corona viruses. One study implicated that being Zinc deficiency increased hospital length of stay and increased mortality of those hospitalized with COVID-19.  Taking Zinc is recommended.

7.  MELATONIN 3-6 MG DAILY
A Cleveland Clinic study found that the use of melatonin daily resulted in a 28% reduced positive testing for COVID-19. Melatonin has also been found  in animal studies to replenish glutathione, a deficiency of which has been linked to severe COVID-19 symptoms. Melatonin has also been found to have antioxidant properties which help fight off infections. Melatonin is a substance produced by the pineal gland in the brain and is associated with sleep. It should be take at night before bedtime as it will facilitate sleep. Melatonin would not be our first line prevention strategy regarding COVID-19.   Our first line strategy would be Vitamin D3, Magnesium Oxide, and K2. However, melatonin is included in the I-MASK+ protocols as part of the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance.

8.  IVERMECTIN PROPHYLAXIS (for high risk individuals only)
8.  IVERMECTIN PROPHYLAXIS 
(for high risk individuals only)
Ivermectin is most commonly used as an anti-parasitic drug, treating conditions such as  strongyloidiasis (worms), onchocerciasis (river blindness) and scabies.  However, ivermectin has been studied extensively and found to have anti-viral properties against COVID-19.   The dosing for prophylaxis for COVID-19 is different than actual treatment dosing.  Ivermectin should be used as prophylaxis for high risk individuals only (elderly with known exposure as well as the immunocompromised).  A prescription is required in the United States. For specific dosing protocols, refer to the I-MASK+ protocols.

9.  BEING WELL RESTED AND NOURISHED.
Being well rested and well nourished with healthy foods is the bedrock to fighting disease processes, infectious or otherwise.  Our immune systems are weakened when we are in an acute or chronic state of fatigue. Eating junk food and other pro-inflammatory foods puts our bodies in an unnatural state of chronic inflammation making us vulnerable to a variety of disease process such as diabetes, hypertension, obesity, various gastrointestinal pathologies, as well as infections. While  ViralStrategiesNow.net provides effective advice on supplements, living a healthy lifestyle with adequate rest and nutrition is fundamental to having a healthy immune system.
