Low Vitamin K1 and K2 Levels Linked to Worse COVID-19 Outcomes

A new study entitled Reduced Vitamin K Status as A Potentially Modifiable Prognostic Risk Factor in COVID-19 indicates that low vitamin K levels may be connected to increased poor outcomes from COVID-19. Additionally, using drugs that impair vitamin K availability … Continue reading

How Astragalus Extracts Help Immune System Fight Viruses

Astragalus has for centuries been attributed with immune system boosting properties. Recent research suggests this may be related to how several compounds found in astragalus, including TA-65 and TAT2, help restore the telomeres in immune system cells. This allows them to replicate further to fight chronic viral infections that accelerate the aging of the immune system cells towards senescence. This benefit may not be limited to those suffering from chronic viral infections. Research is showing that non-infectious chronic inflammatory conditions, such as those caused by smoking, may also be tied to immunosenescence that might be ameliorated by telomerase activating compounds.
