*organic is best.
**should be taken with largest meal of the day [reference].

Supplements to consider: Vitamin C (see dosage if symptomatic), N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC), olive leaf extract, elderberry syrup, echinacea, nigella sativa.

At first symptoms (e.g. feeling not quite right, loss of smell, runny nose, headache, sensitive throat, body aches, temperature, cough etc), the following could be done throughout the day:
Iodine 0.5% mouthwash (gargle 2mins then spit) ~1tbsp. Note this is 99.5% water. This can also be used as a nasal rinse for short term use, see below.
Virgin Coconut oil (gargle 2mins then swallow) ~1/2 tsp
Salt water (gargle 2mins then spit).
Green tea (gargle 2mins then spit). Ordinary black tea may also work.
Colgate Plax or Total, or Chlorhexidine/Corsodyl or Listerine Cool Mint mouthwash, thrice daily. [reference]


The above could also be done intermittently as a prophylactic. For additional effect some do nasal rinsing, e.g. salt water solution in a neti-pot or a 1% baby shampoo water solution (note that the water must be boiled then cooled for nasal rinsing purposes), twice daily. (Note: 1ml = 20 drops)

If you have access to prescription Ivermectin see here for dosage [references].
 
If allergic to any of the above then avoid. Please share this article with others if you found it helpful. Thanks.
