Coronavirus Pandemic Update 70: Glutathione Deficiency, Oxidative Stress, and COVID 19

COVID-19 Update 70 with Roger Seheult, MD
Our Update 71 is available at https://www.medcram.com/courses/coronavirus-outbreak-symptoms-treatment

As many states in the US make arrangements to re-open their economies, Dr. Seheult discusses some recent trends in COVID-19 infections and deaths. Glutathione is a substance produced naturally by the liver- and is also found in vegetables, fruits, and meats. Dr. Seheult discusses some interesting case reports from New York and Russia that suggest glutathione deficiency may be related to COVID-19 severity. More studies are needed to assess if supplementation of NAC and glutathione could aid in the prevention and treatment of COVID-19
