Pre-MM & Covid-19? Supplementation

Share Button

While Pre-MM (SBP, MGUS and SMM) and virus’ such as the flu and the coronavirus are two completely different health problems, they are remarkably similar when it comes to managing them.

When I talk about similarities between pre-MM (SBP, MGUS, SMM) and the COVID-19, I’m talking about RISK. I’m talking about conventional versus non-conventional therapies to reduce a person’s health risks.

If you are diagnosed with either MGUS or SMM, you can undergo chemotherapy to reduce your risk of MM. You can be vaccinated and greatly reduce your risk of contracting the coronavirus or other viruses. Conventional therapies have pros and cons, risk and rewards.

Let me be clear. Chemotherapy and vaccines are essential in the management of cancer and virus’ such as Covid-19. I’m trying to make the point that people can take non-toxic therapies, relatively easy steps shown to dramatically reduce their risks of disease.

According to the research linked and excerpted below, the risk of contracting the coronavirus can be greatly reduced with the nutritional supplementation listed below.

Vitamin D3, Omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin C, Probiotics and other foods and supplements reduce the risk of pre-MM bcoming full MM.

  • Zinc
  • Vitamin D3
  • Vitamin C
  • Omega-3 Fatty Acids
  • Probiotics
  • Exercise


  • anti-angiogenic nutrition,
  • supplementation such as curcumin, resveratrol and omega-3 fatty acids and
  • lifestyle therapies

greatly reduce the risk of a pre-mm patient developing frank multiple myeloma.

The Potential Impact of Zinc Supplementation on COVID-19 Pathogenesis

“This review will therefore discuss the potential of zinc as preventive and therapeutic agent alone or in combination with other strategies, as zinc meets all the above described criteria…

Especially older subjects, patients with chronic diseases and most of the remaining COVID-19 risk groups would most likely benefit. Although studies are needed testing the effect of zinc as therapeutic option for established disease, preventive supplementation of subjects from risk groups should begin now, as zinc is a cost-efficient, globally available and simple to use option with little to no side effects..”

Can vitamin D protect against the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)?

“Several recent studies have looked at the impact of vitamin D on COVID-19-

  • One study of 489 people found that those who had a vitamin D deficiency were more likely to test positive for the virus that causes COVID-19 than people who had normal levels of vitamin D.
  • Other research has observed high rates of vitamin D deficiency in people with COVID-19 who experienced acute respiratory failure. These people had a significantly higher risk of dying.
  • And a small, randomized study found that of 50 people hospitalized with COVID-19 who were given a high dose of a type of vitamin D (calcifediol), only one needed treatment in the intensive care unit. In contrast, among the 26 people with COVID-19 who weren’t given calcifediol, 13 needed to be treated in the intensive care unit…”

Potential benefits and risks of omega-3 fatty acids supplementation to patients with COVID-19

“Studies have shown that infection, excessive coagulation, cytokine storm, leukopenia, lymphopenia, hypoxemia and oxidative stress have also been observed in critically ill Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) patients in addition to the onset symptoms…

Although the inflammatory resolution improved by EPA and DHA could contribute to the recovery of patients infected with SARS-CoV-2, Omega-3 fatty acids supplementation cannot be recommended before randomized and controlled trials are carried out…”

Using Probiotics to Flatten the Curve of Coronavirus Disease COVID-2019 Pandemic

“Probiotics are live microorganisms that when administered in adequate amounts confer a health benefit on the host (). Clinical evidence shows that certain probiotic strains help to prevent bacterial and viral infections, including gastroenteritis, sepsis, and respiratory tract infections (RTIs). The reason for adding probiotic strains to the overall prevention and care strategy is founded in science and clinical studies, albeit hitherto none directly on the etiological agent of this pandemic…

Government funding is being used to test numerous drugs but just as important, they should fund probiotic trials.

In addition, use of recognized prebiotics (e.g., fructans, galactans) to enhance propagation of probiotic strains and indigenous beneficial microbes should be recommended as part of the overall strategy to flatten the curve (, )…”

A Preventive Role of Exercise Across the Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) Pandemic

“Obesity is defined as a condition of excess body fat and represents a state of low-grade chronic inflammation and impaired immunity that is associated with many debilitating and life-threatening disorders. These include respiratory dysfunction, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, some cancers, metabolic risk, and associated co-morbidities, some of which are widely recognized as being related with more severe COVID-19 () (Figure 1)…

The advice could provide stimulation for the human constitution and could play a potential effect on resisting the virus. In terms of exercise benefits, there are multiple advantages of exercise in relation to human health…”
