The Novel Coronavirus 2019 disease is a respiratory infectious disease, the virus has quietly come to our lives and rapidly spread to many so countries around the world since the first outbreak in Wuhan, China in December, 2019. People are panic, scared because they don’t know when the Coronavirus will stop by and affect us. They are invisible and they are powerful. The infectious rate is 10 times more powerful than the regular flu and other viruses.

At the moment, there is no vaccine, no specific medicine to treat the disease except for the test. People are panic, worried and scared because they don’t know what to do and when the virus will stop by and attack us.  Just self-quarantine if having some symptoms; washing hands often, and wash hands thoroughly for 20-30 seconds; keeping social distance and working at home etc. is not enough, because the Novel Coronavirus will not disappear over night. We will live with it for a long period of time. Therefore, building a strong immune system is the foundation for us to combat the Coronavirus and win the war.

The immune system is a big network of cells, tissues and organs, working together to protect our body against foreign invader(s). The foreign invader now is the Coronavirus! Coronavirus 2019 is a Novel Coronavirus. It is very aggressive and powerful with a lot of uncertainties. Although our immune system has many fighters and warriors, but are they strong enough to protect us? Do they have enough fuels and suppliers to keep them in the frontier for a long period of time?

There are three defense systems in our immune system.

Skin is our first defense system. It the includes the inside skin that is called “wet tissues located in our digestive system, respiratory system and urogenital tract; our outside skin such as on our face, nose, body; our arm and foot etc.

Is the defense system ready to defend you?

Innate Immune System is our body 2nd defense system.  Are those white blood cells such as macrophage, neutrophils, natural killer cells strong enough for the war?

Our 3rd defense system is Adaptive Immune System. Those t-cells & b cells, Are they in good shape?

How about Lymphatic System? Those Lymph Nodes, Lymph Organs and Tissues?

Are they well-prepared?

The immune system doesn’t live in one particular place. The immune
system is systematically throughout the entire body.

The immune system is not one organ or one system of organs, it is an army of cells. The army of cells in the immune system patrol every part of the body, defending against cellular damage, and communicate to other different systems with important message so that they can get ready for the defense. The immune system target the virus or bacteria and get ready to fight! 

Improving Immune System is not strengthening one organ or one system only, but it is a process of removing the toxics from the immune system, bring the good nutrients into the blood stream so that the system’s deficiency will become sufficiency ; balance and improve the intestine flora and strength the lymphatic system cells, tissues and organs so that they are ready to fight for you.

Functional Nutrition Intervention Strategies

The Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a respiratory infectious disease. It is susceptible to the general public, especially to those people with low immunity. The severe illness or death are basically accompanied by chronic diseases, especially hypertension, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, Obesity, etc.-COVID-19 is related to ACE2 (angiotensin-converting enzyme) and enters cells via receptor.

 The Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) is mainly caused by the Cytokines Storm.  The cytokines are chemical compounds  or proteins that regulate the immune system. Cytokines exist in both the innate immune system and adaptive immune system and they are inflammatory mediators (either pro or anti-inflammatory). They are released from the cytoplasm of a broad range of white blood cells such as Macrophages, Neutrophils, B Lymphocytes, T Lymphocytes and Mast Cells.

When Cytokines Storm occurs, our body get infected with microorganisms and a variety of cytokines in the body fluids such as (TNF-a, IL-1, IL-6, IL-12, IFN-a, IFN-b, IFN-r, MCP-1, IL-8) are rapidly increased. The sudden attack of a large number of viruses and the cells death cause a strong autoimmune response, leading to vascular leakage, a large amount of fluid accumulation in the lungs, ARDS and multiple organ failure. The symptoms include fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, muscle pain and joint pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, rashes, fast breathing, rapid heartbeat, low blood pressure, seizures, headache, confusion, delirium, hallucinations, tremor, and loss of coordination. For the severe cases, patients can have acute respiratory syndrome, multiple organs failure and even death.

Functional Nutrition Intervention is to use various strategies to improve and enhance the quality of our inside and outside skin, the physical barriers of our immune system; the white blood cells in our innate immune system and adaptive immune system.  We can only combat the virus and win the war until our defense system is capable to fight and defend for us.

Functional Nutrition Intervention Strategies

Vitamins and minerals are considered essential nutrients, they perform hundreds of roles in the body. They help develop bones, heal wounds and bolster our immune system. They also convert food into energy, and repair cellular damage.

Based on Coronavirus clinic sysmptoms, Functional Nutrition Intervention should focus on the following areas:

  1. Supports Natural Protective Layers- Your Skin (Inside & Outside)
  1. Support and Protect Immune Cells and Their Functions
  1. Anti-Virus and Inhibit Virus Replication
  1. Anti-Inflammatory and Prevent Pulmonary Fibrosis

1. Supporting Natural Barrier-Mucosal Layer and Intestinal Microbiome

Aloe Juice Juice

According to the book, ‘Healing Foods’ by DK Publishing House, aloe-vera”can help soothe coughs and bronchial asthma. Its antiseptic properties can help heal colds and sore throats.” It is densely packed with antiviral and anti-bacterial properties that can help shield you against infections and their aggravation.

Ultimate Aloe contains over 200 nutrients including enzymes, vitamins and essential minerals and rich in polysaccharides, glycoproteins, urea nitrogen, creatine, potassium, calcium, magnesium, zinc, phosphorus, iron, choline, sodium, alkaline phosphates, SGO transaminase, SGP transaminase, lactic dehydrogenase, amylase, lipase, mono and polyunsaturated fatty acids, amino acids, saponins, sterols and biogenic stimulators content. Polysaccharides is a part of mucus on the surface of epithelial cells, which can help remove the virus and prevent the virus from invading the cells.


Approximately 70% of your immune system is in the digestive tract. Probiotics help to balance the flora, promote the good bacteria in the digestive system, support immune functions, reduce the incidence or shorten the course of viral infection.
