The duration of long COVID symptoms can vary widely between individuals and may persist for several months or longer.

Natural Supplements for long covid
While vitamin supplements may not be a cure for long COVID, some studies suggest that they may help boost the immune system and improve overall health, which could potentially aid in recovery.
Some vitamins that have been suggested to be helpful in managing long COVID symptoms include Vitamin D, Vitamin C, Zinc, and B vitamins.
Vitamin D is important for immune function and bone health and may help reduce inflammation in the body.
Vitamin C is a natural anti inflammatory for covid that as an antioxidant can help support the immune system and reduce inflammation.
Zinc is important for immune function and may help reduce the duration and severity of respiratory infections.
B vitamins, including B6, B9 (folic acid), and B12, are important for energy metabolism and may help reduce fatigue and brain fog.
However, it’s important to consult with a healthcare provider before starting any new supplements, as excessive intake of certain vitamins can be harmful.
Additionally, a healthy and balanced diet is the best way to obtain these vitamins naturally.
