Natural Immune Boosters

Omega-3 oils reduce excessive inflammation and block cytokine storms. Studies have shown that even though they significantly reduce inflammation, they do not interfere with clearance of viruses and bacteria from the body.

The two components of omega-3 oils — EPA and DHA — each produce a number of inflammation-reducing metabolic compounds, including resolvins, lipoxins, and protectins. Both EPA and DHA generate protective resolvins.

Treating severe cytokine storms that occur with virulent forms of influenza would require doses in the range of 2,000 to 6,000 mg a day, perhaps even higher.

Omega-3 oils also reduce NFkB activation as we saw with vitamin C.

Both curcumin and quercetin powerfully reduce inflammation and overactivation of cytokines and chemokines, which makes them perfect for treating cytokine storms.

They also reduce activation of NFkB, macrophages, and microglia, all of which are major sources of inflammatory cytokines and chemokines.

Apigenin, a flavonoid found in celery and other fruits and vegetables, has been shown to reduce cytokine storm effects in a number of conditions, including inflammatory bowel diseases and reduces brain inflammation.

Luteolin is found in several vegetables and has been shown to powerfully suppress immune cell overactivation, even in the brain.
