How COVID-19 works
COVID-19 likes ACE2 receptors (these are genetics), (mostly in lungs and Gastrointestinal Tract or GI) GI/lung cells are hijacked into making more viruses. The immune system reacts by stepping up its response. This response includes a robust elevation of a pro-inflammatory cytokines including IL-1b, early in the infection process.
COVID19 also known as SARS-CoV-2 infects alveolar endothelial cells (see, ACE2 below) and/or macrophages. Subsequently, the immune system mobilizes a response including generation of various pro-inflammatory cytokines (e.g., IL-1, IL-6, TNF, and IFN-γ).
In some, this immune system mobilization is “overexpressed”, and can result in a severe and highly lethal respiratory disease. This severe respiratory disease is characterized by a prominent pro-inflammatory response (cytokine storm), and is referred to a bilateral pneumonia.
It should be noted that pro-inflammatory cytokines are double-edged swords that not only mobilize human immune system defense but can also drive pathologic inflammation, and therefor can play both anti-viral and pro-viral roles during a SARS-CoV-2 infection.
NOTE: Please note we are NOT claiming to be able to treat or cure COVID-19, we only provide professional guidance on how to improve your immunity using natural practitioner grade supplements and herbals that are proven to support immunity against viral infections.
