The COVID-19 Breakthrough You NEED to Know About!
The fastest way to find a possible cure for COVID-19 might not be to create one… it could be to identify one that already exists.
Of course, identifying promising treatments… at the best dosage… and possibly in combination with other drugs (also at the best dosage), is like finding a needle in a haystack.
Consider this: Testing just 12 potential drugs at 10 different doses each creates ONE TRILLION possible drug combinations.
That’s a pretty big haystack.
But there’s a new form of artificial intelligence that scientists are utilizing to help identify the perfect compounds for fighting COVID-19.
This program has identified six potential treatments… and two of them happen to be completely natural.
Most artificial intelligence algorithms look BACK at what you’ve trained it in to answer questions. But there’s a new artificial intelligence program called Project Prodigy that looks FORWARD.
This allows researchers to test possible and unanticipated FUTURE scenarios, and could be a game-changer for finding effective treatment options for COVID-19.
This AI program is mapping all known drugs against every mechanism by which SARS-CoV-2 causes complications.
So far, the program has identified SIX potential treatments.
Aprotinin (an antifibrinolytic) and irbesartan (an angiotensin II receptor blocker) could help reduce the effects of the damaging cytokine storm—and the high viral load—associated with COVID-19.
Caplacizumab and ezetimibe/atorvastatin could help treat the blood clotting and inflammation associated with COVID-19.
And two natural compounds were identified as possible treatments for COVID-19: lycopene and vitamin D.
I’m not at all surprised to see vitamin D on this list.
Studies have shown that people with low vitamin D levels are more likely to be admitted to the hospital with COVID-19—and are also more likely to die.
This makes perfect sense, since vitamin D helps your body fight off infections.
Lycopene’s potential benefit was a new one on my radar.
Lycopene is the compound that gives the red color to fruits and vegetables like tomatoes, watermelons, and pink grapefruit.
Your body can utilize it best when it gets it directly from food sources like these.
Now that these scientists have found those key needles in the haystack, it’s time for other researchers to take the baton and carry out further testing on these compounds.
And in the meantime, go outside and eat some watermelon in the sun.

Just the thought of developing dementia is terrifying. The fact that there are already 7 million Americans over 65 living with the disease—and that will increase to 12 million in the next 15 years—is even scarier.

When you think of doing something good for your heart, what comes to mind first? Maybe your diet? Or getting regular exercise? Well, another VITAL factor should be at the forefront of your mind as well… sleep. But simply clocking MORE hours in the sack isn’t the answer. Here’s why… Your body craves routine. Not...
Many people take creatine to help feed their muscles. But did you know it can help feed your brain, too? Creatine gives your muscles—and your brain—an extra energy boost when you need it most.

Ladies, getting screened for breast cancer is vital. I want that to be clear. Breast cancer is currently the second leading cause of cancer death in women. An estimated 12.9 percent of U.S. women will develop this disease in their lifetime, and about 42,000 women still die each year from it. Identifying and treating breast cancer...
In its early stages, glaucoma is often a silent disease with no clear signs of its presence. So, by the time you start to experience symptoms like glare and tunnel vision, you could already have irreversible eye damage. But there is hope.

The disease ALSO sends your risk of dying from heart disease soaring. That is,...

Chronic inflammation is a classic case of “too much of a good thing.” When it’s acute, it helps your body fight infections, speeds up wound healing, helps prevent further injury, and more. But when acute inflammation turns chronic, it can lead to devastating tissue, organ, and cell damage. In fact, it’s estimated that 50 percent...
