Researchers from Italy, UK & Pakistan Identify Nutraceutical as COVID-19 Crusher: More Trials Needed

Yet another nutraceutical showed promise as at least a supportive treatment against SARS-Cov-2, the virus behind COVID-19. This time it’s the safe nutraceutical product known as quercetin, and the results certainly justify additional investigation via larger, better-designed randomized controlled trials. TrialSite reminds all the gratitude that should be bestowed on subjects in clinical trials, those who make the sacrifice to help deliver this important data.

As a side benefit, quercetin shows promise as a senolytic and in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
