The instructors
Recent reports from the COVID-19 outbreak indicate that more than 80% of the fatalities are associated with people diagnosed with preexisting conditions— including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, and autoimmune conditions.
 
There is an urgent need to find alternative methods to control the spread of disease and optimize the immune systems' vital functions of defense and repair.
 
Located inside the gut is almost 70% of the entire immune system, and there is an intimate connection between diet, nutrition, infection, and host immunity.
 
This timely and information-packed session will discuss how nutrition and evidence-based supplements can be used to support immune health and decrease COVID-19 infection.
