A researcher from Oregon State University’s Linus Pauling Institute and a few other researchers from reputable medical institutions around the world recommend that administering high amounts of certain vitamins and minerals to people may be key in the fight against COVID-19.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), iron deficiency in children under the age of two “can have significant and irreversible effects on brain development.” Furthermore, “This can lead to negative consequences on learning and school performance later in life.”
Some medical professionals believe that the coronavirus “...is using the olfactory nerve to transfer across the skull into the brain,” according to one report.

For instance, a pro-inflammatory diet rich in processed, nutrient-void foods may contribute to cognitive decline, and an anti-inflammatory diet rich in whole, nutrient-rich foods may delay cognitive decline. And now, a recent study suggests that it’s not just about what you are eating but how you are pairing certain foods together.
