Boost the Immune System
Many people have been asking if there are any natural ways to help boost the immune system and the body’s ability to fight against viruses. Below are suggestions of what I found in my research.

Quercetin, which is found in onions, has shown promise in inhibiting the way viruses invade the cell. It can “disguise” the outside of the cell, making it harder for the virus to enter. It can also increase the amount of zinc inside the cell. When cells have a high amount of zinc inside, the virus’s ability to use the cell to make more viruses is reduced. The less cells a virus invades in the body, the less ill you become and a faster recovery.
Quercetin is currently being studied to see if it is effective against COVID-19. What Is Quercetin? Benefits, Foods, Dosage, and Side Effectswww.healthline.com › nutrition › quercetin
