Thus, it is highly significant that cytosolic GPX1 has been shown to interact with an inactive C145A mutant of Mpro , the main cysteine protease of SARS-CoV-2, but not wit...

This paper presents a major new and in fact unprecedented mechanism that may contribute to the highly significant correlation between selenium status and COVID-19 mortality that my collaborators and I recently reported in Am J Clin Nutr (Zhang et al. 2020, full text available on this site). The antioxidant selenoenzyme glutathione peroxidase (GPX)...


... Note that high doses of oral NAC could result in intolerable gastrointestinal adverse effects such as nausea, vomiting, and diarrhoea [159]. Other micronutrients, such as zinc [194], selenium [106,195,196], magnesium, vitamins A, C, and D [113,116,197], should form part of a successful integrative protocol [110], while sulfur-donors such as MSM, allicin [157], or marine-derived sulfated PSs can also be considered. MSM is entirely safe and effective, taken at daily dosages of up to 4 g to prevent infection and modulate the immune response [136]. ...
