Treating COVID-19 as variants mutate and evolve remains a moving target with very few options. Zinc has long been studied for potential antiviral properties, although studies have been mixed in its effect in treating COVID-19. A new study out re-examines whether Zinc may be effective in the treatment of COVID-19.

The NIH does not recommended for or against Zinc use in the treatment of COVID-19, but they do recommend against using higher than recommended daily doses. https://www.covid19treatmentguideline…

Researchers published in Clinical Infectious Disease a new study finding a shorter duration of symptoms and decreased ICU admissions for those treated with Zinc twice per day for 15 days. This effect seemed most pronounced in those with moderate disease severity, the elderly, and those that starting taking Zinc earlier after their symptoms started. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/36367…
