Aspirin can Reduce Serious Outcomes of COVID-19
Hi I read an article yesterday that said that aspirin can reduce risk of ICU admissions and death, covid-19 researchers say. They were talking about the low dose aspirin that people already take as they age to reduce risk of heart attack. This was kind of cool news. I assume it is due to the effect of aspirin reducing clotting of the blood, and microscopic blood clots have been found in many organs of people who have died of covid 19.
Of course, just taking low dose aspirin is really not sufficient to guarantee a good outcome if you might become infected with covid 19. We know, based on solid research, that a number of other nutrients can be helpful to prevent infections or help prevent serious outcomes of infection. This information has been put out by the Institute for Functional Medicine, IFM, on their COVID information page. Those supplements include:
Selenium (not too much please)
