Zinc and Quercetin

Quercetin opens the door so zinc can enter the cells and that may boost our resistance to viruses.

A Note From DAH on January 18, 2022


My sister started having omicron-like symptoms on January 3, 2022 such as night sweats, body aches, and a slight fever. She took a home rona test and it was positive. She wore a new N95 mask on an airplane and still got the rona. An N95 mask is supposed to be better than most masks that people wear, so if you're a member of the popular cult that believes that masks magically keep away the rona, you might want to find a new cult.


Her boyfriend also started showing signs that he might have omicron, so he took a home test and that was also positive.


Below is a list of my sister's symptoms and non-symptoms in case it might be helpful:

  • Night sweats for two or three days.
  • Occasional headache.
  • Slight fever for two days.
  • Slight sore throat.
  • Randomly felt hot or cold.
  • Worn out. No energy to do anything.
  • Had to go number one and number two more than usual.
  • A little coughing here and there. Her lungs didn't seem to be filled with crud.
  • No runny nose, but she did need to blow her nose once in a while.
  • No loss of appetite.
  • No loss of smell or taste.


My sister took another home test on January 14, 2022 and it was negative, so she was sick for around 12 days. She was a little tired, had a slight headache that would come and go, and a light cough once in a while, but the rest of the symptoms were gone. As of January 18, 2022, she has a light cough that comes and goes.


My sister and I live in the same house and I was around her a lot during her sickness (getting her food and stuff), but I didn't catch the rona or at least I had no symptoms. My sister and I are untainted by Trump's rushed experimental immune system mangling jab (some people call it the depopulation jab), so it's hard to believe some articles that claim the unjabbed are worse off than the jabbed when it comes to recovering from omicron. In case it matters to anyone, she has O positive blood and I have B negative blood.



Update June 16, 2022

It was time to get my blood tested in May of 2022 and my doctor said that my Vitamin D level was 71, so that might also explain why I was more rona-resistant. [My Vitamin D level was 19 in 2010, so my supplements are working.]


Another thing I probably should mention is that I have a Multi-Tech S3500 Air Purifier by Surround Air in my room that blows out a ton of negative ions. It doesn't produce positive ions or ozone, just good old negative ions that make the air fresh and pleasantly energizing. I always turn off the air purifier when I leave the house and there is a huge noticeable difference in the air when it's been been off for hours. Negative ions can supposedly reduce the presence of airborne viruses and bacteria. Don't know if it helps with the rona, but the air in my room is so much better when it's filled with negative ions.



Update September 17, 2022

At the place where my sister works, my sister and 5 other people got the rona at the same time. Most of them are jabbed. Below are my sister's symptoms and related things.


August 15, 2022: Sore throat. Thought it was an allergic reaction to spicy food.


August 16, 2022: Felt like crap. Headache. Throat worse. Left work early.


August 17, 2022: Horrible headache. Body sore. Tested positive.


August 18, 2022: Felt like she couldn't move.


August 19, 2022: Slight headache. Body aches.


August 20, 2022: Pretty much the same as the day before.


August 21, 2022: Still tired, but headache gone. Tested negative, so this version of the rona didn't last as long as the bout in January.


August 22, 2022: Body feeling better.


August 23, 2022: Back to work for a 6 hour day. Wore her out.


Like the last time, she had no loss of appetite and no loss of smell or taste. Unlike the last time, she had a runny nose. As usual, I was around my sister the whole time and didn't get any symptoms.



Update November 20, 2022

My sister got her blood tested in November of 2022 and her doctor said that her Vitamin D level was 67, so now I don't know what to think about my rona resistance. Her vitamin D level is almost as high as mine.

I am not a doctor and I am not giving out medical advice. You could be allergic to the supplements mentioned on this page or have some other strange reaction to them. If you think you might want to take these supplements, ask your doctor first. Some people commenting under various zinc supplements at Amazon complain about vomiting. I wonder if they're allergic or taking supplements on an empty stomach? My sister and I always take supplements with food. Most of our supplements are taken at breakfast and supper.


Thanks to the information posted by Dr. Zev Zelenko at Twitter, I have been taking half of a Rugby Zinc Sulfate 220 mg (#ad) tablet (using a pill cutter (#ad)) and a NOW Foods Quercetin (#ad) capsule once a day since summer of 2020. My sister also takes them. She works at a mall, so she's constantly around other people. My sister and I also take other supplements such as Andrew Lessman Vitamin C Capsules (#ad) and Jarrow Vitamin D3 5000 IU (#ad).


A Note From DAH on January 24, 2022


Since my sister already had the rona, we started taking half a zinc tablet twice a week around January 20, 2022 to help avoid getting too much. We still take quercetin every day and our daily vitamin has some zinc in it. Too much zinc can interfere with copper absorption according to various sources on the Internet. We might eventually drop to half a tablet once a week.





Open the Door and Let Zinc In

The article Can You Boost Your Resistance to COVID-19? has this to say about quercetin:


Quercetin is a plant compound called a flavonoid. This compound is a “zinc ionophore”it opens a special “door” or “gate” in the cell membrane so that zinc can get into the cells. This may help boost your resistance to the SARS-CoV-2 virus at the cellular level, although that is still unproven.


Dr. Zev Zelenko has what he calls the Zelenko Protocol:




Quercetin 500mg one or two a day


Zinc 25mg (elemental) once a day


Ask your doctor before taking and if appropriate for your unique situation.


Search for quercetin (#ad) and elemental zinc (#ad) at Amazon.


Adapted version of what Dr. Zev Zelenko tweeted on August 16, 2020:


Our government does not want us to treat COVID-19 early. If I get COVID-19 and no HCQ accessI would IMMEDIATELY take quercetin 500mg three times a day for 7 days, elemental zinc 50mg one a day for 7 days, and z-pack. Every American home should have quercetin and zinc.


Quercetin and zinc are over the counter and are available without a prescription.


Adapted version of what Dr. Zev Zelenko also tweeted on August 16, 2020:


Our government is failing us. We must take care of ourselves and each other. High risk patients should consider taking prophylaxis against covid: Quercetin 500mg once a day; elemental zinc 25mg once a day; vitamin c 1000mg once a day. May prevent influenza also.


Quercetin, zinc, and vitamin C are available without a prescription.


Thyra Danevirke replied with this on August 16, 2020


Easiest way: search Amazon for: zinc sulfate 220mg tablets, each pill has 50mg of elemental zinc because zinc sulfate is 23% elemental zinc. Cut tablet in 1/2 to take 25mg of elemental zinc.


Adapted version of what Dr. Zev Zelenko tweeted on August 18, 2020:


Another potent OTC zinc ionophore is Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG), which is a green tea extract. Recommend EGCG 400mg a day with zinc 25mg a day for prevention.


Adapted version of what Dr. Zev Zelenko also tweeted on August 18, 2020:


In sumHCQ works the best for prophylaxis and treatment. But, it has been demonized and is hard to get. Thus, second choice is quercetinthere is good data on it and I have used it with great results. Third choice is EGCG. I have no experience with it, but it most likely works.

Zelenko Protocol Plus

Zelenko Protocol Plus






In Case You Didn't Know


B Vitamins = Good

Some people appear to have a mental illness because they have a vitamin B deficiency. For example, the wife of a guy I used to chat with online had severe mood swings which seemed to be caused by food allergies or intolerances. She would became irrational, obnoxious, throw tantrums, and generally act like she had a mental illness. The horrid behavior stopped after she started taking a vitamin B complex. I've been taking Jarrow B-Right (#ad) for many years. It makes me much easier to live with.



Soy = Bad

Unfermented soy is bad! “When she stopped eating soy, the mental problems went away.” Fermented soy doesn't bother me, but the various versions of unfermented soy (soy flour, soybean oil, and so on) that are used in all kinds of products these days causes a negative mental health reaction in me that a vitamin B complex can't tame. The sinister encroachment of soy has made the careful reading of ingredients a necessity.



Wheat = Bad

If you are overweight, have type II diabetes, or are worried about the condition of your heart, check out the videos by William Davis and Ivor Cummins. It seems that most people should avoid wheat, not just those who have a wheat allergy or celiac disease. Check out these books: Undoctored (#ad), Wheat Belly (#ad), and Eat Rich, Live Long (#ad).



Negative Ions = Good

Negative ions are good for us. You might want to avoid positive ion generators and ozone generators. Whenever I need a new air cleaner (with negative ion generator), I buy it from A plain old air cleaner is better than nothing, but one that produces negative ions makes the air in a room fresher and easier for me to breathe. It also helps to brighten my mood.



Litterbugs = Bad

Never litter. Toss it in the trash or take it home. Do not throw it on the ground. Also remember that good people clean up after themselves at home, out in public, at a campsite and so on. Leave it better than you found it.



Climate Change Cash Grab = Bad

Seems like more people than ever finally care about water, land, and air pollution, but the climate change cash grab scam is designed to put more of your money into the bank accounts of greedy politicians. Those power-hungry schemers try to trick us with bad data and lies about overpopulation while pretending to be caring do-gooders. Trying to eliminate pollution is a good thing, but the carbon footprint of the average law-abiding human right now is actually making the planet greener instead of killing it.
