Covid-19 & health Update: Long-Covid Reduced with Probiotics

Hello everyone:

Data shows that over 50% of those with Covid-19 who were hospitalized are now suffering with Long-Covid symptoms such as fatigue, fog, muscle aches and fatigue, and cognitive disturbances or fog. There is also the issue that post-Covid can cause the re-emergence of old infection issues like Epstein-Barr (mono), shingles, and Lyme’s. So, anything that can help has the potential to assist a lot of our community as about 30% of those that had Covid who were not hospitalized are reporting some Long-Covid issues.

Here is a hopeful article demonstrating how probiotics and systemic enzymes can help to alleviate some symptoms to some degree.

“This study demonstrates that a 14 days supplementation of ImmunoSEB + ProbioSEB CSC3 resolves post-COVID-19 fatigue. The proposed supplement regimen significantly reduces the burden of both, physical and mental fatigue and is effective as an early intervention in the recovery of COVID-19 patients, many of whom continue to experience severe fatigue including muscle weakness and “brain fog” several months after initial infection. Thus, while researchers are still characterizing post-COVID sequelae, we suggest the addition of these dietary supplements to other evidence-based multidisciplinary care approaches to improve functional status and quality of life in these patients.”

Bottom Line:

While I personally have not tried these products it would make sense that such an approach could be useful. It is low cost and if effective could be a great help to many of us. There are similar products available as well and you could try taking probiotics and systemic enzymes as outlined in this article and see how it goes…it does seem worth a try. Do a bit of research using key words such as: systemic enzymes; probiotics shelf stable. Note that the protocol lasted 2 weeks.

Systemic enzymes are enzymes that are not meant to digest food but are taken away from food and have been found to have some anti-inflammatory properties and an example is Serrapeptase or Lumbrokinase as these enzymes do not interfere with the normal blood clotting cascade whereas an enzyme called Nattokinase may. Or you could check out the products from the research article and see how it goes…of note is that there were no adverse events reported out of the 100 people that took the regimen.

At any rate, this is good news and if anyone gives it a try, please let me know how it goes.

Thank you one and all for reading our blog, you are appreciated.
