A new study published in Frontiers in Nutrition revealed that vitamin B6 helps prevent the Corona virus, food scientist Thanochaporn Comrongsi hopes that it will be the first step in demonstrating the potential of vitamin B6 in reducing the likelihood of cytokine storms, according to the Medical Express website. medicalxpress.

Vitamin B6 may help prevent coronavirus cell storms

Recently, many scientists have published papers related to the role of diet and nutrients in protecting against the Coronavirus, said Komrungse, associate professor at the Integrated Graduate School of Hiroshima University of Science, Japan. However, very few scientists are interested in the important role of vitamin B6. .

The study cited mounting evidence showing that vitamin B6 exerts a protective effect against chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes by suppressing inflammation, inflammatory diseases, oxidative stress and carbonyl stress.

Komrungsee explained that thrombosis (blood clotting) and cytokine storm (excessive inflammation) may be closely related to the severity of the Corona virus, cytokine storms occur when the immune system goes into an excessive level and begins attacking even healthy cells and at the same time, blood clots associated with the Corona virus can Clog capillaries and damage vital organs such as the heart, lungs, liver and kidneys.

It is worth noting that corona and influenza viruses are among the viruses that can cause fatal lung injuries and death from acute respiratory distress syndrome around the world, and viral infections trigger a cell storm that leads to inflammation of endothelial cells in the lung, neutrophil infiltration and increased oxidative stress.

In addition, vitamin B6 is a well-known anti-coagulant and anti-inflammatory nutrient, a deficiency in this vitamin is also associated with reduced immune function and increased exposure to viral infections. Studies have so far explored the benefits of vitamins D and C and minerals such as zinc and magnesium in strengthening the immune response against the Corona virus.
