IMPORTANT: AVOID NSAIDS WITH CORONAVIRUS INFECTION!!!
The problem with NSAIDs (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatories) and Covid-19.
There has been much discussion on why NSAIDS are not recommended to take if you have symptoms of the COVID- 19 infection. NSAIDS inhibit the enzyme, COX2, that allows the conversion to Prostaglandin 2, PGE2). This is important because we need PGE2 to resolve inflammation or infection. PGE2 signals resolvants, primarily EPA and DHA (Omega 3’s) to create resolution of inflammation that can be caused by a viral infection.
Also, NSAIDS affect the production of B cells, which help our body attack viruses.
We recommend the use of natural anti-inflammatories like Curcumin or Resveratrol, which also help to minimize the chance of fibrosis in the lungs.
