MELATONIN is a strong anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, immune modulator and helps with calming cytokines, controlling ROS, boosting innate immune function and providing a mild sedative effect. It is made by the pineal gland, the gut and all mitochondria (when in darkness). People make less as they age but can easily supplement. Typical dosing is 1-10 mg. Supplementing melatonin encourages production of ATP and in turn more melatonin.
Melatonin Significantly Reduces COVID Mortality by Mercola PDF - Jan 2022 In one study, 10mg of melatonin reduces death rates by 93%. Studies show melatonin reduces hospital duration and sepsis. Non-COVID melatonin use starts low and increases as necessary.
High Dose Melatonin - a Treatment Adjunct for Acute Infections by Mercola PDF - Nov 2021 One study used high dose melatonin from 36 to 72 mg per day divided into 4 doses. Melatonin helps with vitamin D utilization, glutathione recharging, calming cytokine storms, inhibits sepsis, helps high blood pressure, insulin resistance and diabetes. It also seems to help prevent mitochondrial impairment, energy failure and apoptosis in mitochondria damaged by oxidation.
Niacin & Melatonin Support Metabolic Health by Mercola.com - Sep 2021 CENSORED Niacin and melatonin may work together to help with obesity. In an animal study niacin reduced abdominal fat by 27% with 3000mg/day for a year. Niacin (B3) is anti-inflammatory and reduces pro-inflammatory cytokines, improves respiratory function, maintains endothelial integrity and reduces hypercoagulability. A paper by Dmitry Kats, Phd. states niacin benefits for colorectal cancer. Smokers may have some COVID-19 protection because nicotine is a analog for niacin. Daily RDA niacin recommendations are 16mg for men and 14mg for women. Per Dr. Kats, niacin helps calcium signaling which seems to help inhibit SARS-CoV2 cell infection and drive it out of infected cells. Melatonin reduces inflammation and helps the immune system modulate and the circadian rhythm (sleep). Melatonin is a cytoprotector and appears to help with cardiovascular disease, diabetes and metabolic syndrome. Melatonin is also neuroprotective and may help with COVID-19 sequelae. Melatonin may help reduce niacin flush with Dr. Kats recommending a 50:1 ratio of Niacin to melatonin. Dr. Mercola reminds people not to use melatonin over 5-10 mg /day long-term because it releases heavy metals like mercury from the body.
Melatonin a Standard Treatment Adjunct for COVID-19 by Mercola.com - Oct 2020 CENSORED explains how melatonin helps inhibit cytokine storms, helps mitochondria, helps reduce sepsis, maybe antiviral, and works synergistically with vitamin D and seems to help reduce severe COVID-19 symptoms. Patients were given 36 to 72 mg per day in the hospital study.
Cleveland Clinic Identifies Melatonin as a COVID-19 Treatment by Mercola.com - Nov 2020 CENSORED Melatonin helps with many immune aspects of COVID-19 by working synergistically with vitamin D to help calm inflammation and balance other immune reactions. Supplemental melatonin seemed to reduce overall risk of testing positive for COVID-19 by 28% (and for blacks by 52%). Melatonin helps recharge glutathione and prevent cancer. It helps with brain, cardiovascular and gastrointestinal health. It may help bacterial treatments (i.e. TB) and may help with autoimmune issues like type 1 diabetes.

Melatonin Biochemistry by Dr. Been Medical Lectures - 2020 explains how it is part of COVID MATH protocol in home and hospital care
MONOLAURIN is a special Laruic Acid extract from coconut oil
Monolaurin is a Unique Immue Booster with Ron Hunninghake, M.D. - 2020 Monolaurin seems helpful as a safe antiviral against encapsulated like EBV, cytomeagaly, and the flu, etc. It seems to dissolve the capsule exposing the virus to the immune system. The amount recommended for acute illness is 600mg x3 every 3 hours until 24 hours after feeling well. Monolaurin can be bitter so it is usually swallowed with water without chewing. Chronic conditions (like yeast infection) may benefit from 600mg x2 twice daily ongoing. Monolaurin may help as a preventative if one takes the chronic amount at the time of possible exposure. Using good quality monolaurin is important. See more at the www.Riordanclinic.org monolaurin description.
COLOSTRUM is an extract from bovine milk while they are feeding a new calf and containing the immune components.
Colostrum: More Effective Than Flu Vaccine by Mercola.com - Oct 2020 CENSORED Colostrum helps boost your natural killer cells. According to the CDC in 2019, the influenza vaccine had an adjusted effectiveness rate of 29% for all ages and only 12-14% for those over age 50. Counter the age-related decline of your immune system (immuno senescence) by regular exercise, quitting smoking, EMRB, cardamom and black pepper, colostrum, beta-glucans (from mushrooms like shiitake, maitake and oyster), probiotics, ginseng and melatonin. In one study, researchers found that probiotics and colostrum seemed more effective in preventing the flu than the influenza vaccine. Interestingly, those who contracted influenza after being vaccinated, had twice as many flu sickness days as those not vaccinated.
DMG (dimethylglycine) is a nutrient that helps with cell function, improving energy and metabolism. We source ours from DaVinci Labs, who I believe is the original formulator of such products.
GLYCONUTRIENTS are group of nutrients that help with the body's communication, repair and defense. A whole chapter in Harper's Biochemistry is dedicated to this class of nutrients discovered in the 1980's? They are extracted from aloe vera, seaweed and etc. We source ours from www.Mannatech.com. They have done a lot of research on these products.
