COVID-19 Supplements: A new study by researchers from Baylor College of Medicine, Houston-USA has found that COVID-19 patients especially those that have been hospitalized, typically exhibit increased levels of oxidative stress, oxidant damage and glutathione deficiency. The study findings have implications for the inclusion of Glycine and N-Acetylcysteine (GlyNAC) supplementation into standard treatment protocols.

Oxidative stress (OxS) is a harmful condition caused by excess reactive-oxygen species (ROS) and is normally neutralized by antioxidants among which Glutathione (GSH) is the most abundant. GSH deficiency results in amplified OxS due to compromised antioxidant defenses.
 
As a result of little being known about GSH or OxS in COVID-19 infection, the study team measured GSH, TBARS (a marker of OxS) and F2-isoprostane (marker of oxidant damage) concentrations in 60 adult patients hospitalized with COVID-19.
 
Shockingly compared to uninfected controls, COVID-19 patients of all age groups had severe GSH deficiency, increased OxS and elevated oxidant damage which worsened with advancing age.
 
Surprisingly these defects were also present in younger age groups, where they do not normally occur.
 
As a result of GlyNAC (combination of glycine and N-acetylcysteine) supplementation beeing shown in clinical trials to rapidly improve GSH deficiency, OxS and oxidant damage, GlyNAC supplementation has implications for combating these defects in COVID-19 infected patients and warrants urgent investigation.
 
The study findings were published in the peer reviewed journal: Antioxidants.
