In the face of pathogens, some nutrients have been demonstrated to support immunity. A healthy diet, such as micronutrients, protein, and essential fats will health individuals to be more resilient and healthier. For examples, having sufficient vitamin A is associated with immunity to infections and illness. Vitamin C is currently getting a lot of attention in the time of the COVID-19 pandemic, both positive and negative. Some previous studies demonstrated that vitamin C might assist in reduction of symptoms of colds and shorten their illness duration and might assist in preventing the occurrence of colds in individuals prone to higher levels of stress and athletes when regularly taken. Currently, several trials on vitamin C effects and COVID-19 are undergoing in China, such as in Hubei (NCT04264533, ChiCTR2000029768 https://www.chistr.org.cn/showproj.aspx?proj=49131), Shaanxi and Hubei (ChiCTR2000029957 https://www.chictr.org.cn/showproj.aspx?proj=49633), Hubei and Shaanxi (ChiCTR2000030135 https://www.chictr.org.cn/showproj.aspx?proj=50002). Vitamin D is a principal immune regulator and has demonstrated promise for assisting several auto-immune conditions. Vitamin E has immunomodulatory and anti-inflammatory effects. Bioflavonoids from plants can reduce upper-respiratory-tract infections, indicated by previous research. Trial on alpha lipoic acid and COVID-19 is also undergoing in China (ChiCTR2000029851 https://www.chictr.org.cn/showproj.aspx?proj=49534).
