Coronavirus vs Zinc, Chloroquine, Hydroxychloroquine, and Quercetin

Coronavirus vs Zinc, Chloroquine, Hydroxychloroquine, and Quercetin

I’m Cesar A Arias MD FAAP I’m also The CEO of Spartan training bands.  This COVID-19 Epidemic is hurting a lot of people but it can be prevented and treated by common Herbal Remedies. Zinc, Quercetin and Green tea. Are the 3 most effective supplements.

The Drugs Hydroxychloroquine and Zithromax are an Antimalarial and a macrolide antibiotic. The reason they’re in the news is that they have been shown to have some efficacy vs SARS-COV 2 also know as the coronavirus that’s causing our the World Wide epidemic.
They are what we call Ionosphores which means they make zinc more available in our cells the COVID is infecting( all cells) by transporting Zinc a positive ion into the cells.
Zinc inhibits Replicase the enzyme the virus used to form copies of itself and overwhelm our immunity.
So why aren't they the cure? Because most people all over the world are zinc deficient. That’s why!! So we need to supplement with Zinc but then we need to get it into the cell. These two drugs are prescription and are now in short supply and are restricted by pharmacies.
The answer we need is two inexpensive herbal compounds that we can buy almost anywhere. Quercetin has been studied and is being studied in Montreal and China to treat COVID 19 and EGCG.
EGCG is found in Green tea!
These two compounds are very active Zinc Ionosphores.
They Drive Zinc into the cell and the zinc then goes to work inhibiting the virus from reproducing.
So why aren’t these two herbals being studied and compared to hydroxychloroquine and Zithromax?
Because they can be found along with zinc at any pharmacy OTC or health food store.
There is no money in these remedies for pharmaceutical companies.
So I urge you to supplement with zinc 30 mg a day and take Quercetin with a glass of green tea. It tastes great with honey!
To optimize your immune system you need to exercise as well but how do you do this without a gym?
Using Spartan training bands that incorporate blood flow restriction technology you can boost the response of bodyweight exercises such as walking, jogging, pushups pull-ups, and bodyweight squats to the level of heavy resistance weight exercises.
This technology has been extensively researched with over 200 papers over the last 50 years which can attest to its efficacy.
Just search blood flow restriction technology and you can see the papers.
It’s so simple to use. You place the bands around your legs or arms and tighten them until you reduce the amount of blood flow leaving your arms or legs. I said reduce not stop and certainly never stop the blood from going into your extremities.
Then you do 3 to 4 sets or walk or jog for 20 minutes. It’s that simple. Without exercise, you will deplete your immune system but extremes of exercise can do the same and right now we certainly need our immune system.

Chloroquine and Hydroxychloroquine, and their success in treating NCOV19 infection https://academic.oup.com/cid/advance-article/doi/10.1093/cid/ciaa237/5801998

We've all heard that Zinc can stop the viral infection, i.e. help duration of colds and influenzas. However, most zinc in the body doesn't make it into the cells and past the cell wall.

Zinc ionophores shuttle zinc past the cell surface membrane, into the inner cell - where it can work it's magic in halting viral replication.

So what other supplements act as zinc ionophores?

Three over the counter herbals were tried in this study two of them are quercetin and epigallocatechin-gallate.
Both EGCG and quercetin showed high ionophore activity with zinc through fluorescence.

Quercetin Is a Potent Antiviral  (information by Dr. Mercola at Mercola.com)

As reported by Maclean's,17 Canadian researchers Michel Chrétien and Majambu Mbikay began investigating quercetin in the aftermath of the SARS epidemic that broke out across 26 countries in 2003. 

They discovered a derivative of quercetin provided broad-spectrum protection against a wide range of viruses, including SARS18,19 and Ebola. Chrétien and Mbikay are now starting a clinical trial to evaluate the effectiveness of quercetin against COVID-19.  

As noted in a 2016 study20 in the journal Nutrients, quercetin's mechanisms of action include the inhibition of lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α) production in macrophages. 

TNF-α is a cytokine involved in systemic inflammation, secreted by activated macrophages, a type of immune cell that digests foreign substances, microbes and other harmful or damaged components. Quercetin also inhibits the release of proinflammatory cytokines and histamine by modulating calcium influx into the cell.21

According to this paper, quercetin also stabilizes mast cells and has "a direct regulatory effect on basic functional properties of immune cells," which allows it to inhibit "a huge panoply of molecular targets in the micromolar concentration range, either by down-regulating or suppressing many inflammatory pathways and functions."22

In summary, quercetin has been found to limit viral illness via three primary mechanisms. First, it inhibits the virus' ability to infect cells. Second, it inhibits the replication of already infected cells, and third, it reduces infected cells' resistance to treatment with antiviral medication.
