With rising concerns of COVID-19 the Meta Health care team are committed to keeping the community well informed while practicing social distancing to prevent the spread of the virus.
Below are our favorite supplements on how to support the mucosal immune system so we are able to remain healthy and happy as the Coronavirus attacks via the mucosal lining at the nose and mouth. All of these supplements can minimize the virus turning into a full blown cytokine storm (systemic inflammatory response) if you are contracted with COVID-19.
All of our supplements are available via our online fullscript pharmacy. E-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can directly ship herbs and supplements to your own home and have our practitioners advice on correct dosages.
If you have additional health concerns we recommend that you schedule a tele-consultation with one of our licensed acupuncturist and functional medicine practitioners to get coaching on continual dietary, lifestyle and additional herbs and natural supplements as the key to being healthy during times like this is to make sure we are all balanced to optimize your immune system.
Here are our top 5 favorite products to boost mucosal immunity:
